Charm City Cakes awarding winners with tickets to Orioles vs. Yankees.

It’s time for cake decorators to step up to the plate.

Would you like to win tickets to the big game between the Orioles and the Yankees on July 13? By entering the Yankees vs. Orioles Cake Competition hosted by Charm City Cakes, it’s possible.

The July 13 class and competition begins at 11 a.m. at the Remington bakery and pits Orioles and Yankees against each other only hours before the big game that night at Camden Yards.

Veteran Charm City Cakes decorator, Mary Smith, will host the cake class and competition to honor one of the best rivalries in baseball.

“I grew up a Yankees fan and they will always be my favorite,” says Smith. “Having said that, since moving to Baltimore in 2001, I have come to appreciate the Orioles, and consider myself a fan of theirs too. I’ve even had season tickets for a couple of years.”

The first and second place winners will receive two pairs of tickets and batting practice field passes for the 8:05 p.m. game.

The class will begin with tips from Smith like how to fondant and design a cake, followed by participants coming up with their own designs.

The cost of the cake class and entering the competition is $150 per participant.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Young Adult Institute, a non-profit organization for people with developmental disabilities and their families.
