Following the judging the Eleven cakes will be on showcase in the new Cookery Section at the Ekka. 

This competition is a test of skills in the fine art of baking a Dark Rich Fruit Cake for those who wish to maintain a heritage culture which has been renowned for generations.
A set recipe is not provided – exhibitors are permitted to use their own tried and proven recipe in accordance with the Queensland Ag Show rules.

The competition begins at the local show. Winners of the Dark Rich Fruit Cake local show competition are eligible to enter the Sub Chamber competition. The winner of each Sub Chamber is then eligible to be judged at the State Finals. Only one entry from each Sub-Chamber is permitted and no cut cake will be accepted in any competition. For more information about local shows, please visit the Contact Shows page.

All exhibits for the State final must be a 500g mixture, made with approximately 2.25kg of fruit, and will be displayed at the State Finals hosting show.
