The Vibe Foundation held Cake Craze Saturday night. The Vibe Foundation hosted their Cake Craze fundraising event Saturday night, pitting nine local bakeries against each other in a cake-decorating contest themed “Generation Y” at 1725 K St.
The event was fundraising for the organization’s opening this summer.
Julia Hidalgo,18, another Christian Brothers senior, is the chair of Vibe’s youth board.
“The fundraiser is really just to get our doors open,” Hidalgo said.
Hidalgo expressed her vision of Vibe as molding to the needs of the youth community that leads it.
“It’s all about what kids want,” Hidalgo said. “If kids want free SAT classes, maybe we’ll do that,” Hidalgo said. “We’re hoping to get our doors open no later than July.”
Chelsea Carter,18, is a senior at Christian Brothers High School and is Vibe’s event planner. She said Vibe’s goal was to provide a place for Sacramento youth to go and hang out at night.
“Basically we want a place for teenagers and youth to hang out in a safe place,” Carter said. “We are working to create a teen urban lounge and career and resource center.”
“It was so stressful to do it and plan it to get stuff done,” Carter said. “Now that it’s here, it’s fantastic. The music and the cakes are super cool,” said Carter. “I’m glad everything is working out well.”
Sweet Cakes was awarded the Incomparable Innovation (best in show) prize.
Kat’s Cakes was awarded the Premium Pioneering (most creative) prize.
Crazy Cake Company was awarded the Optimum Outrageousness (most outrageous) prize.
Cake Castle Bakery was awarded the Supreme Stimulation (best depiction of theme) prize.
The event was well attended with a steady stream of people coming and going. The organizers felt the event went well.
Christine Giffin, Vibe’s executive director, echoed Hidalgo’s sentiment that Vibe activities are open to the interpretation of the youth who lead the organization.
“I’m not attached to any one idea with this place,” Giffin said. “The idea is just whatever our current generation of teens in Sacramento want, that’s what Vibe aspires to be.”
