ChocolatefestCake Competition

Chocolatefest’s cake competition draws some of the finest culinary talent to Central PA! In partnership with Harrisburg Magazine, the cake competition is a fun way for chefs to showcase their pastry skills and promote their company. Last year’s “Day at the Beach” theme resulted in some spectacular cakes!

This year’s theme is “Frozen,” a winter theme.
