Christina Harter-Felszeghy, co-creator of the amazing winner of our International Day of Radiology cake competition explains the inspiration and production of the winning cake. Don’t miss the photo gallery at the bottom of this post.
My Father, Dr. Scott Harter, is a radiologist and Chief of Radiology Consultants in Little Rock (Arkansas, USA) and I am a confectioner. While researching how Radiology Consultants could celebrate IDoR 2016, Radiology Consultants’ social media manager came across a post about the ESR’s Cake Competition on the International Day of Radiology website. My father and I volunteered to design and bake a cake to share with the group, thinking it would be a wonderful way to celebrate this special day! It turned out to be a truly unique project.
The winning cake (cross section)
Over the last few years we have seen more and more people getting into the spirit of the International Day of Radiology (IDoR), holding parties and get-togethers around the world. In the photographs of these celebrations there is often a delicious looking cake, so this year we decided to encourage this as much as possible by launching the IDoR Cake Competition, with a grand prize of free registration for the European Congress of Radiology 2017, along with two nights hotel accommodation.
We received lots of submissions, but below is our jury’s selection of the most original and creative entries. Please vote for your favourite – the cake with the most votes at 12:00 (CET) on November 16 will be our winner!
