THE COMPETITION

In addition to a variety of drinks and live entertainment, the main event will be the vast variety of delicious chocolate creations available. A host of Birmingham’s beloved bakers and chocolatiers will bring their best efforts to share with attendees and judges, so bring your appetite! At previous events, we’ve seen gourmet bread pudding, decadent white chocolate pot dè crème, irresistible macaroons, and much more.

The sweet, creative offerings will be judged by a panel of local celebrity guests, and competitors will vie for awards in several categories: Most Creative Use of Chocolate, Judge’s Choice, and Best Decorations. Attendees will also be able to vote for the People’s Choice winner.
