2. Age categories are as follows; Child (up to 12 Yearsof age), Young Adult (13-19 Years), Adult (20 years old and Up). Entrants in the child category may have an adult to assist them in baking their cake as well as completing it (frosting, dusting, etc.). As much as possible, entries should be the sole work of the entrant. There is one category for Willimantic-themed cake; this cake will be judged solely on appearance.
3. One entry per person.
4. Entries will be judged on taste (50%), Texture (25%), Appearance (10%), and Creativity/Presentation (15%).
5. Prizes will be awarded for best in age category and best Willimantic themed cake. Theme cakes may be entered for decoration only. Please specify. Other prizes may be awarded as possible.

7. Persons who are food service professionals/cake/culinary members are not eligible for competition. Persons who are related to judges or personnel involved in the competition may not enter into the contest.
8. Cakes must come with a list of ingredients provided the day of the competition. This will ensure prospective cake bidders allergy information, if needed.
9. Cakes must be dropped off at the City Side Deli (750 Main St.) building between 9 and 10 am on February 9th. Please let the person in charge know if your cake may be auctioned off when the contest is over. Cakes that are auctioned off will help provide funding for future Chocolate Festivals. Your cake will be accepted and all necessary paper work will be completed.
10. Prizes will be awarded at 3:00pm at City Side Deli. Please be present and take your cake home upon completion of the competition. Any cakes not claimed will be discarded.
