Election Cake Bake-Off 2023

November 4, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

It’s time to celebrate Election Day with some sweet competition! Join Connecticut’s Old State House on Saturday, November 4th, from 1-4pm for the second annual Election Cake Bake-Off. Help us revive a long-lost Connecticut tradition that deserves a comeback. In Connecticut’s 18th and 19th centuries, Election Day combined voting with parties, libations, parades, and cake!

Stores sold special Election Cake ingredients to women who transformed them into spicy cakes for crowds gathered to vote at the State House and other Connecticut cities. For the second year in a row, Connecticut pastry chefs and bakers will compete to have a panel of celebrity judges proclaim their confection, the official 2023 Connecticut Election Cake.
Celebrity judges include Jenna D’Amico, 2022 Election Cake Bake-Off Winner; Alex P. Taylor, Senior Community Manager, Yelp Connecticut; and David Milton, food reviewer, thedamgram on Instagram and thedamtok on TikTok. Come sample cakes, observe celebrity judging, enjoy music, and gear up for voting on Tuesday, November 7th . This event is free and open to the public. Bakers can register here: https://bit.ly/ctoshbakeoff2023. This exhibit is part of Connecticut’s Old State House “Go Big. Vote Local.” Series.
