Regina’s Bay Bakery in Whitefish Bay is one of the contenders in a cake-decorating contest hosted by the Zoological Society of Milwaukee (ZSM) at its Centennial Celebration Kickoff, sponsored by Tri City National Bank. Zoo-themed cakes submitted by Milwaukee-area bakeries will be featured at the event on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2010, at the Milwaukee County Zoo.

Watch live decorating by bakers from Cakes While U Wait. Enjoy free samples of a sheet cake, as well as free coffee, hot chocolate and popcorn (while supplies last), as you browse the entries.
