Heidi Miller, a 2008 graduate of the Academy of Culinary Arts, won three awards in Pittsburgh’s premier cake decorating and tasting competition “Let Them Eat Cake!” The black-tie event was held at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh on April 25, 2010.
Miller submitted an entry for her employer, Vanilla Pastry Studio of Pittsburgh. Her cake, “Let It Grow,” received the award for Best Overall Professional Decorated Cake. Heidi’s entry also received the Judges’ Award for Best Artistic Design and Overall Structure and the Judges’ Award for Best Use of Decorative Elements.
This is the second year that Heidi has participated in the competition. In 2009, her creation titled “Green Apples” won awards for Best Professionally Decorated Cake and Best Cake Overall.
