The competitors will need to create over-the-top creations that fit the 2020 theme, "Mythical, Magical Beasts & Creatures." And, of course, make sure the desserts taste great, too.

A panel of experts will pick their favorite for Best in Show and Best in Taste, but there will be an Audience Choice award, as well.

In the Millennium Ballroom at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, guests can sample the cakes, drink and dance from 6 to 8 p.m.

Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door, with all proceeds going to supporting children with disabilities in the Philadelphia area.
