The Tiny Temptations Cake Competition
Sponsored by the Culinary Institute of Virginia, ECPI and HRM
Sweet Genius? Last Sunday, local sweet geniuses Rodney Diehl (Williamsburg Lodge), Dawn Eskins (Carolina Cupcakery), Mike Farrell (Still Worldy Eclectic Tapas), Carla Hesseltine (Just Cupcakes) and Roshuni Samuel (The Founders In and Spa) competed in the Tiny Temptations Cake Competition at the Mid-Atlantic Home and Garden Show. Sponsored by the Culinary Institute of Virginia and Hampton Roads Magazine, these baking experts impressed us with the creativity they showed in light of confectious challenge. We were delighted to have Food Network's Chef Ron Ben-Israel of Sweet Genius and HGTV's John Gidding of Curb Appeal as our celebrity judges, led by our very own HRM food editor, Chef Patrick Evans-Hylton.
