This weekend, more than 5,000 people will convene at the Round Rock Sports Center, 2400 Chisolm Trail Road, for the 12th annual That Takes the Cake sugar arts show and cake competition.

It’s one of the biggest cake shows in the country, according to the Capital Confectioners, the local club that hosts the event, and this year, the theme is Night at the Museum.

Bakers from across the country will compete in dozens of categories, and their creations will be on display throughout the two-day event. Attendees, including kids as young as 5, can also sign up to take classes at the venue.

Advance tickets cost $10 per day or $17 for the weekend ($12 and $20 at the door, respectively) and are available at at thattakesthecake.org.

If you’d like to submit a cake to competition, make sure you pre-register online, too.
