Four days of competition and 22 hours' time to work. 
Marzipan figures, desserts, plated desserts, a cake, pralines and a showpiece made of chocolate, including cake-and-sugar decorations — all of which to be produced within the allotted time. Judging at WorldSkills is based not only on the products' appearance and taste. Contestants are also judged on complying with deadline, the exact number of products, stated size and weight, diversity of the components, applied skills, cleanliness and organisation.

Much thanks go to Leo Forsthofer as well as Christian Schaberreiter for help and cooperation at the world championships!

All good things come in threes!

Andrea Regner, winner of the Austrian federal confectionery apprentices 2009!

State and national Apprentice Competition 2008 – 2xGold

Gregor Regner, apprentice at the well-known confectioner Josef and Maria Fingerlos in Salzburg, stood atop a field of Austria's 18 best apprentices, taking top honors in the federal competition on 28 May 2008, at the Atrio shopping mall in Villach.

Two weeks earlier, the 20-year-old won Salzburg's state competition of confectionery apprentices. He trained with his boss Josef Fingerlos, the 1993 world champion and 1995 European vice champion of patisserie. 

“Art of Fantasy” – this is reflected in his products (showpieces, cream cake, Petit Fours, Marzipan figures, flower bouquets and pralines), which had to be made within six hours. His products moved the jury that evaluates the overall highly skilled competitors. His large, two-tiered showpiece was made of chocolate and decorated with a fantasy bird blown of silk sugar and adorned with an artfully decorated sugar flower.

Gregor's victory also made history at the contest for him and his sister Johanna: They are the only siblings to each win the federal competition, following Johanna's win in 2004.

The event brings together accredited professionals from Upper Styria to the state's “Vulcanland” – a region recognised for the high quality of its products.

The final cake held a diameter of 22 cm. The bottom layer consists of a chocolate biscuit with fruity apple jam. On top is a cake of cream with steamed, square-cut apples and a shot of Maschanska Schnapps to round out the taste. On top is a nougat cream with a pumpkin lacing made of caramelized pumpkin seeds mixed with milk chocolate.

The top layer is a chocolate mousse with the legendary Swiss pine Schnapps. The finished filled cake is coated in a shiny chocolate cover. As decoration, the sides of the cake are garnished with golden dusted chocolate discs, topped with truffels decoration in white chocolate and pumpkin brittle.
