Why do some competitions ask for a technical information sheet?
This helps a judge understand anything which is not obvious to the eye in your entry and helps the judge know that you have complied with the schedule.
This could be internal supports which are hidden from view, or edible products which may look incorrect.
You would describe the food safe materials used for an internal support or list the brand name of edible gold, silver or glitter products used.
Sometimes you may have made your own moulds or used an unusual flower which may not be recognised and it helps the judge to know this.
Who writes a schedule?
The show organisers are responsible to write the schedule and this is frequently done in consultation with the Guild or other cake decorating bodies
to keep it up to date with new techniques and trends.
