Last weekend I went to Cake International, a baking show which was celebrated at Excel London (from 12 to 14 April).
Really excited at the entrance
There were different areas inside, such as exhibition stands, baking and sugarcraft supplies, competition area, demonstration rooms… It was brilliant! Latest ideas could be found there!
I was lucky to be accompanied by my partner Álex, my personal photograph that day. He helped me to take some pictures whilst I was contemplating those stunning cakes and sugarcraft flowers. They were absolute master pieces.
There were some popular guests in there, such as Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, Mich Turner, Xanthe Milton, etc. I was so fortunate to see both Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood’s in a live demonstration. For those people who don’t know them, they’re the presenters of the enjoyable TV show “The Great British Bake Off”.
With regard to the competition, categories consisted of novelty cakes, tiered cakes, junior cakes, cupcakes, cookies, sugarcraft flowers… The best pieces of each class got one of the following awards: BRONZE, SILVER or GOLD.
Here are some of the works I liked the most:
I really loved these realistic and cute giraffes! Perfectly made!
It looked like real leather! Absolutely stunning!
I was completely amazed by this cake! Super innovative and creative! Great attention to detail. I think it was my favourite one. Congratulations to its cake designer Amanda Macleod (GOLD award).
Very beautiful mermaid!
I really like the combination of these colours.
So tiny and so cuuuuute!
I’ll show you some other pictures in the next post, since I can’t put them all in this (there are too many!). So stay tuned! : )
As you can guess, I enjoyed a lot in Cake International and I’ll repeat next year, definitely!
Have a nice and sweet week.
