In the Student Chocolate Challenge, this year’s entrants will be asked to bring in and present pre-assembled chocolate showpieces. Showpieces will be critiqued based on the overall artistic appeal and creativity of the finished work, as well as the amount of technique and skill displayed. The Student Chocolate Challenge offers students the opportunity to experience the world of competitions, while allowing schools to come together in a friendly, competitive environment.
Pastry Live 2013, to be held August 25th, 26th and 27th, will also host several other competitions in addition to the Student Chocolate Challenge, including the Art of Cake, the Chocolatier of the Year, the National Showpiece Championship and the Signature Plated Dessert. Highlighted during these competitions will be some of the nation’s premier talents. Additionally, the three-day event will feature seminars instructed by the top names in the industry. Various topics will be covered, offering cutting edge techniques and training to help attendees advance to the next level.
