CAKE PARADISE--Heavens to Betty Crocker why isn’t the San Diego Cake Club’s annual “Confections for a Cause Cake Competition” a two-day national holiday? Everybody take the day off! The 29th annual sweet tooth weekend, Mar 10 & 11 will raise funds for Ronald MacDonald House Charities. What’s even better is admission is free.

Held at the La Jolla Village Square Shopping Center, 8657 La Jolla Village Dr., the cake show and sugar arts displays will features 200 cakes vying for prizes.

No control when it comes to cake bakes. But because this is a serious group with dues, newsletters, goals, values and standards, I promise not to be the one questioned behind the scenes as to why I have cake on my face and hands and pockets.

All the cakes will be on display 10 am – 5 pm on Sat. and 12 pm – 3pm on Sun.
Kids can visit Cupcake Corner to decorate and buy cupcakes.

Note: The club was formed in 1981 by Evelyn Scott. She was a home Economics teacher for 17 years, a Girl Scouts leader, and a trainer of other leaders. She loved cake decorating and being able to share her knowledge with others. She held the
position of California State Representative for ICES and went on to hold an office on the ICES Board of Directors. To most people who had the privilege to know her, “Ev” was an icon.

The purpose of the organization is to share, promote, encourage, and enlarge the appreciation of cake decorating and the many other forms of confectionery art.

There are more events than can be listed here so for more info email Valerie Lindsley at or
