COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Cake designers from Nebraska and Iowa are using whipped frosting to put their creativity to the test. The designers will meet today (Thursday), in Council Bluffs for an annual cake challenge hosted by grocery store chain Hy-Vee. Organizers expect a large crowd to watch competitors quickly decorate cakes, cookies and cupcakes based on a theme of their choice. It’s the last of six regional contests to determine who will be the “Ace of Cakes” for 2013. The top three designers win cash prizes and a change to compete in a final competition at the end of March in Des Moines.
