You are a contestant in the finale of the 9th Annual Cake Decorating Championship. One of the hosts has been embroiled in a bitter buttercream scandal, and so you arrive to find an Anarchist is now running the competition. In this hands-on live game, you do whatever you can to impress the revolutionary philosopher with your anarchic cake decorating to ultimately win the championship, or the good fight.
This live game was featured at Pop Up Playground‘s 2015 Fresh Air Festival in Melbourne on the 6th and 7th of March. It combines reality tv, baking competitions, and live gaming to create an experience that facilitates progressive anarchy.
