There’s plenty of food to eat at the fair, but there is some delicious treats you can’t touch!
The cakes on display are judged by a team of more than a dozen judges.
There are 15 categories of cakes on display at the fair and organizers said it takes a lot of hard work and time to get these cakes ready.
“I’ve had people come up and tell me it’s taken them up to three weeks to bake a cake,” State Fair cake superintendent, Cheryl Gum, said. “It pays off and usually they are the best in show.”
Cakes submitted don’t have to be cakes. Some of the decorated cakes are actually Styrofoam.
You also do not have to be a resident of West Virginia to enter a cake.
