The first round of the competition took place at the SIRHA Budapest trade fair. Each competing cake was exhibited in glass cabinets, and master confectioner Ádám Pataki was the moderator of the jury panel’s evaluation work. This year poppy seed, sour cherry, chestnut, Tokaj wines and sour cream were the most popular ingredients. Some confectioners used exciting ingredients such as sweet potato and goose liver, and two cakes were made with potato mousse.
