San Diego Annual Cake Show and Competition


San Diego Virtual Cake Competition 2020

We are so excited to have teamed up with Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego once again, and to bring you this fun, virtual cake competition.

We know we are all living under unusual circumstances, but we hope our virtual show will bring a little baking fun into all your lives, while raising some much needed funds for Ronald McDonald House.

100% of your entry fee and people choice voting fee goes directly to Ronald McDonald House.

This competition will not have all the usual rules and categories like we do at the actual show, but we do have some wonderful prizes from our amazing sponsors.
The biggest rule here is too HAVE FUN!!!


Last Updated: 3/12/2020

With our community in mind, we have made the decision to cancel The 37th Annual San Diego Cake Show & Competition in accordance with the San Diego County ban on large public gatherings. We are deeply disappointed on behalf of our Competitors, Students, Club Members, Spectators, Volunteers, & Vendor Partners, but with the decision being taken entirely out of our hands, we now look ahead to making San Diego Cake Show & Competition the best it can be next year.  We hope you will join us then.


Much has changed in the week since our last update about the Coronavirus. The advancement of the virus in California has caused us to consider the well-being of those that matter most to us: you, our community. We are grateful for the support our community has given us as we tried to maintain the original event dates.


We also want to remind you if you booked a hotel room using our group rate at the Hilton Del Mar you have until Tuesday, March 17th to cancel and get a refund. Please use the link in your reservation email to cancel.


All Tickets & Competition Entries & Classes will be refunded, please be patient as we deal with the bureaucracy of this process. 


Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at The Show next year!

Stay Safe,

San Diego Cake Show Committee

    What is the San Diego Cake Show All About?

    It is all about charity! Yes, there is the incredible cake competition featuring astounding works of art in sugar, fascinating classes by world renowned cake artists, fabulous shopping from the caking industries top vendors and free stage demos for all ages, but our bottom line is giving back! The San Diego Cake Club has put on the San Diego Cake Show for 36 years! And in those 36 years we have donated thousands of dollars to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Last year alone we were able to donate $15,000! This is because we are a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization. Our show is put on by volunteers, from the top down, everyone is a volunteer. So when you come to the San Diego Cake Show, you get to enjoy the classes, vendors, cake competition and demos, but you are also helping to provide a “home-away-from-home” for families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals. What could be sweeter than that?
