LA Cookie Con and Sweets Show is the West Coast’s BIGGEST convention for baking, decorating, and sweets. Our 2018 show was totally sold out and attended by sugar artists, event planners, trendsetters, bloggers, press and celebrities from around the globe. For our 2019 show we’re proud to unveil our Decorators’ Showcase and Contests to benefit Smile Train and Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
Sugar artists, help us assemble an extravagant display of your best decorated cakes, cookies, cake pops and blown sugar art. Your work will be seen by millions on social media and the web, plus our eager attendees, including our esteemed celebrity guests. A winner will be chosen in each category by a panel of judges and hosted by Ron Ben-Israel.
2019’s LACC show will have four categories for your submissions:
– World Dessert Table Championships
1- Animation characters
2- Rock n’ Roll
You may submit any edible sugar art to these three categories. The tables are 6 to 8 feet long and draped in white tablecloth and skirting. Each competitor will have a 2’ area for their display and a sign with their name/business name and social media profiles.
You must set up your work between 8:30 am – 9:30 am on Saturday, February 18th. You may dismantle it when the show closes on Sunday, February 19, or leave it for the maintenance crew to dispose of.
The general public will cast votes for their favorites works on Facebook. The winners in each category will receive awesome prizes and trophies!
This is a friendly, charitable showcase with a focus on supporting charities and celebrating edible art — so beginners through professionals are welcome, as are team entries. Amateurs’ and professionals’ work will be grouped together as appropriate.

Shriners Hospital for Children
We’ve treated orthopedic conditions since the founding of our first hospital in 1922. With a large full-time staff of pediatric orthopedic surgeons in the United States, as well as a comprehensive team of physical, occupational, speech and other therapists, we are able to provide customized care to each child.
Since first treating burn survivors in the 1960s, we’ve pioneered some of the most significant advancements in burn care. We provide advanced care for burn injuries and related scarring, along with physical rehabilitation and emotional support.
Spinal cord injury
We were the first health care system in the country to develop spinal cord injury rehabilitation centers designed specifically for children. Our groundbreaking research has led to innovative treatment techniques, providing care that helps children lead a full, active and healthy life.
Cleft lip and palate
Our cleft lip and palate reconstruction program gives kids a reason to smile. Each treatment plan is crafted uniquely for the child by a team of experts working together to improve a child’s eating, breathing, communication, self-esteem and appearance.
Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.
Millions of children in developing countries with untreated clefts live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Our sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities.
We use the “teach a man to fish” model focusing on training local doctors to perform cleft repairs in their communities. Those doctors then go on to train other doctors creating a long-term, sustainable system.
Patients see their smile for the first time, parents cry tears of joy, lives and communities are changed forever.
As a result of our efficiency and with the support of our donors and partners around the world, Smile Train has transformed the lives of more than one million children by giving them the power of a smile.
Join us and change the world one smile at a time.
