Two pastry chefs from L'Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles took home top prizes from the Pastry Live National Showpiece Championship in Atlanta, Ga. The theme of this year's event, which was held on Aug. 24-26, was video games.

Bill Foltz and Cori Schlemmer were named National Showpiece Champions and won Best Sugar Showpiece for their piece "Dragon Ball." The duo also garnered the Competitor's Choice Award.

Other award-winning pieces in the competition were inspired by several video game franchises, including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong and Tomb Raider.

"Pastry Live wishes to congratulate chefs Bill Foltz and Cori Schlemmer for winning this year's National Showpiece Championship. Pastry Live also thanks each competitor for their outstanding work, professionalism and for helping to make this yet another successful year," said Event Producer Paul Bodrogi in a news release.
