Thank you for considering being a presenter at the 5th annual “Brown Sugar Cake Retreat” in 2021, July 15th-17th. The location will be given to the presenters chosen. The BSCR showcases those who have not had at the opportunity to do so, in the cake and treat community. Please note that this is not a paid event. To be considered please make sure to send us all forms completed, a photo of your completed demonstration project, a photo of you only and a 3-minute video by April 30th. The video must state, your name, where you are from and a brief description of what you are demonstrating. Please show a little of your demonstration. Somewhere in the video you must show us your finished product. I highly recommend using all 3 minutes! Please email everything to: (document below)
If chosen, a professional head shot of you only in a chef coat, along with professional photos of your finished product are due by June 15th. Please have various angles and wide shots done for your flyers. A contract will also be sent to you as well if chosen.
We will advertise with promotional social media flyers and such throughout the year with your topic/demonstration. However, you must commit to posting once a week from August to December to promote yourself and the retreat. We also need videos from you to help promote due on the 15th of September, October and November. These videos simply need to state, your excitement about being a part of the BSCR only. In January we ask you post twice a month until April. At the end of June, you are required to post a video on your excitement of the BSCR.
You are required to attend all BSCR events prior to the event time on all three days.
You are required to dress and look professional at all events.
Meals provided are breakfast and lunch on Friday and brunch on Saturday.
Thursday: Meet & Greet (casual or aligned with theme)
Friday: Chef coat and pants/jeans
Friday Evening: Gala/Cocktail attire

Travel & Hotel Accommodations:
Please be advised that you are required to make your own travel arrangements, as that is your financial responsibility. The hotel room will be paid for on Thursday & Friday night by the retreat and we will room you with another presenter of the same sex. However, if you want to have your own room, you will be financially responsible. February 28th, 2021 please inform us of your decision. Incidentals and parking are your financial responsibility, along with maneuvering around the city.
If you chose to not be apart of the BSCR at any time, we ask for total discretion and to NOT announce your departure from the event. We will not make an announcement or mention your departure as well. At any time, we have the right to remove you from the retreat if you do not meet our deadlines on social media and other items we request.
