Bellaire, MI. The American Culinary Federation of Northwest Michigan* has partnered with Shanty Creek Resorts and the Bellaire Chamber of Commerce to bring “Art in Ice, Sweet & Nice” to the Streets of Downtown Bellaire on Saturday February 29th 12pm - 4pm. Watch 3000 pounds of ice transformed into sculptures before your eyes. Carved by regional culinary artists and sponsored by Bellaire businesses, visitors are invited to watch ice blocks take shape. The ice carving is open to the public.
Returning this year during the Art in Ice event is the “Sweet Treats Bake Off”, featuring samples from area pastry chefs. Similar to Bellaire’s popular Soup Cook Off, a $5 ticket gives visitors an opportunity to taste 6 baked sweet treats that include a “pie dough” ingredient. Only 200 tickets will be sold. Tickets holders will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite treat while enjoying the live ice sculpting. The winning pastry chef will hold bragging rights as the “Best Sweet Treat” in Bellaire.
Tickets are on sale now at the Bellaire Chamber, Ruthann’s Gourmet Bakery, Paddles & Pedals, and The Flying Pig. Only 200 tickets are available and will sell out fast.
While in Bellaire, visit downtown shops as they offer specials and entertainment. The event will be in conjunction with an American Culinary Foundation (ACF) event with Chef meet and greets, student carvers etc.
