RE: 7th Annual LET THEM EAT CAKE! event on May 19th, 2012
The Midwife Center for Birth & Women’s Health (TMC) presents the 7th Annual “Let Them Eat Cake!” event on Saturday, May 19th, 2012 from 7:30-10:00 p.m. at the Pittsburgh Opera. Bakers and cake decorators from the Pittsburgh will be submitting their cakes to be rated by a panel of expert judges. Attendees will vote for the People’s Choice Awards for Best Taste and Decorated Cakes. Winners of the Best Overall Taste and Decorated Cakes will be featured in this summer’s issue of TABLE Magazine and receive $100 gift certificates from Whole Foods.
The theme for the 2012 Let Them Eat Cake! event is “1982: Birth of a Dream Come True” in honor of The Midwife Center’s 30th anniversary as the region’s only licensed and freestanding birth center. Entrants for both the Taste and Decoration categories are asked to decorate and bake their cakes in ways that are inspired by the theme. This could include cakes for anniversaries, births and birthdays, the 1980’s, and the number 30.
The event also includes appetizers, open wine/beer bar and champagne tasting, and musical entertainment by DJ Riel. A VIP reception immediately before the main event will feature musical entertainment by a Resident Artist of the Pittsburgh Opera. Event honorary committee members include Christina French of Table Magazine, Councilmen Patrick Dowd and Bill Peduto, and State Representatives Dan Frankel and Joe Petrarca. UPMC Mercy is the event’s generous “Anniversary Cake” level sponsor.
