Who will be our Next Cover Star? Cast Your Vote.

On March 1, 2018, we teamed up with American Cake Decorating to find the next great cover star. Hundreds of entries poured in from all over the world as talented cake artists submitted their latest wedding cakes for a shot at the grand prize!
After an exhaustive judging process, four finalists were selected to have their cakes grace a digital cover of the May/June Wedding Issue.

How It Works 

Upon competition closure, all entries will be judged by an elite judging team and three lucky finalists will see their cakes presented on a digital cover. The three winning designs will then be shared on the Satin Ice website, and via social media, for a public vote. The Satin Ice Cover Star winner will be announced on May 1 upon the issue release.

Terms and Conditions

Cakes must be photographed professionally or by a gifted amateur, and be at least 300 dpi CMYK (high-resolution images). Cakes must represent the theme of the issue. Artists should have a passion for the Satin Ice and American Cake Decorating brands.

All entries should be submitted to Satin Ice via email to submissions@satinfinefoods.com, or via social media using #SatinIceStar. Entries must be received between February 1 and March 5, 2018, for consideration. Any entries received after the closing date will not be eligible for feature. Please note, failure to meet entry requirements could result in disqualification.

Ideally any cake submission should be created exclusively for this issue (priority for cover feature will be given to artists who design and create a cake exclusively for the competition). However, portfolio cakes may be submitted as long as they are previously unpublished (not featured on online blogs, in magazines, or in print publications) and meet all other requirements.


The three finalists will each receive a mini-interview in the May/June issue of American Cake Decorating, and be featured on the American Cake Decorating and Satin Ice websites. The winner will receive a four-page feature interview in the July/August issue and an accompanying feature on the Satin Ice website as their Satin Ice Cover Star. The winner will also receive a one-year print and digital subscription to American Cake Decorating with V.I.C. membership ($120 value), a gift basket of products provided by American Cake Decorating, and a $500 worth of Satin Ice products. To commemorate your Cover Star status the winner will also receive a framed plaque of their cover issue. Runners-up will receive a free subscription to American Cake Decorating and an exclusive prize from Satin Ice.
