THE FOURTH year of the competition for the most beautiful cake in Slovakia took place in the newly opened theatre in Púchov. The contest lured 34 amateaur and professional confectioners from around the country.

Winners of last years professional category, Mária Tulcová, Jana Pišteková and Viera Hýllová of the Secondary Professional School of Trade and Services in Čadca, won again this year. Tulcová sought to create something original, but also wanted to keep last year’s trophy for professionals at home. She told the TASR newswire that the cake was a result of the ideas of three people, good cooperation, skilful hands and two weeks of intense work

The core of the cake was made from a Sacher mixture with a “Paris cream” filling, as well as bananas, marmalade and a walnut-rum filling, the cake’s creator said.

The contest was organised by the Club of Confectioners of Slovakia in cooperation with the Secondary Professional School of Trade and Services in Púchov. Organiser Jozefína Zaukolcová told the TASR newswire that the 34 contestants competed in four categories – amateur, professional, juniors under 21 years, and a special category of non-traditional cakes.

“We organise the competition on a professional level, so unlike many other contests, we stress not just the looks, but also the taste of the cake,” Zaukolcová told TASR, adding that all parts of the cake had to be edible, and no wires or polystyrene trays were allowed.

She explained that often the cakes of amateurs are better than those of professionals, adding that amateurs have more time to spend on the finishing touches. She concluded that this year more amateurs than professionals came to compete in the mid-October contest, and the winner of the amateur this year was Helena Šedíková of Pruské. Júlia Gažová of the local Secondary Professional School of Trade and Services in Púchov won in the junior category, and in non-traditional cakes, Zuzana Šulavíková of Považská Bystrica won.
