Look no further, the perfect fiesta cake has arrived! Nothing says ‘¡Viva Fiesta!’ like this decorative Italian Cream Cake that you can colorfully customize to your heart’s content. Get everyone involved in the baking process, and don’t forgot to attend the Valero Texas Open (VTO) on Saturday, April 21st featuring internationally known Celebrity Chef Duff Goldman (Ace of Cakes, Charm City Cakes)!
Since no birthday party can be had without cake, the VTO for the first time is partnering with San Antonio based C.H. Guenther & Son’s Pioneer® Brand to offer the Pioneer® Brand Celebrity Cake-Off—a cake competition where six local celebrity pastry chefs will join six pastry and culinary students from St. Philips College Culinary School to compete for their team’s charity. The six professional pastry chefs will include talented individuals scaling from a variety of hotels, restaurants and specialty bakeries.
Each team will design a 90th birthday celebration cake incorporating decorative tournament elements such as the Valero Texas Open’s logo, golf, charity, or the tournament’s three pillars: music, food, and military appreciation.
Pioneer® Brand will then award the winning team a $10,000 donation to the charity of their choice, 2nd place a $5,000 donation, 3rd place a $2,500 donation, and the last three teams each will receive a $1,000 donation to their respective charities of choice…what a great cause!
Celebrity Chef Duff Goldman will serve as the featured Pioneer® Brand Celebrity Judge and will also design his version of the Official 90th Celebration Cake, which will be unveiled following the completion of the Pioneer® Brand Celebrity Cake-Off event in the lower lobby of the JW Marriott Resort. Additional local celebrity judge will include Culinary Chef Suzie Martel of the Pioneer® Brand. To be announced at a further date, a media representative, a representative from Valero Energy Corporation and a PGA TOUR Professional.
