Coborn’s Cake Decorator Wins Bakery Competition
On Feb. 25, Amanda Hansen, Cake Decorator at the Coborn’s store in Sauk Rapids, Minn., won her second gold medal at the 93rd annual Upper Midwest Bakery Convention. Amanda went head to head with more than 40 cake decorators from across the Midwest at the event. Her “Alice in Wonderland” inspired cake, complete with five leaning tiers and 25 pounds of fondant icing took 40 hours to construct!
This is Amanda’s fourth year in the competition and second gold medal. She commented, “Every year the competition has grown in size and quality of cakes. Every year I try to make my cakes bigger and better. I made this cake with styrofoam, but had I made it with real cake inside, there would be five tiers made of 17 layers of cake. That is by far the biggest cake I’ve made!”
