Cake & Bake Show 2012

Monday, 24 September 2012

Mary Berry demonstrating chocolate cake alongside Paul Hollywood - Cake & Bake Demonstration
This weekend has been all about baking, I write this as if every weekend isn’t about baking, well, in all embarrassing honesty - 70% of my weekends revolve around baking. But this weekend I had the treasurable honour of assisting a brilliant pirates & mermaids cupcake class, making cakes for my boyfriend’s work colleagues (pictures to follow) AND AND AND attending the Cake and Bake Show! A weekend of 100% baking, wouldn’t you say?

As I’m sure many of you baking Brits were aware, this weekend saw the UK’s first ever baking exhibition! But it weren’t like one of those wedding shows you get at the event halls in a big shopping complex where another name you might have for it is an  inside market. Oh no, it was much more than that, not only was there an inside market of some proper groovy sprinkles, props, embossing rolling pins, fabulous books… but ticket holders also got to enjoy cake demonstrations by the likes of Mary Bezza & Paul Hollywood! Queues (literally) of people were taught (from a-far) how to bake the perfect bread, chocolate cake, roulade… the list was endless, as was the sheer amount of people at the event. The fact that so many people booked tickets to C&B really showed the vast increase in budding bakers out there in big (small) old England, it showed that thousands of people have reverted back to simple home traditions that over time and advances, we slowly started to forget about. So what if the queues to eat were an hour long? My hunger was cured by each and every stall, demonstration, classroom and edible visitors book (near the life-size chair – what were you doing there?) I laid my eyes on.

Sponsored by Baking Mad, held at Earls Court (and Manchester) and roughly 20 hours of cake and bake. I have no qualms that there will be another show next year, the year after that and possibly the ten years after that. Next year however, the show will no doubt be much much bigger, because if it's not then I don’t think there will be a show the following year, unless ‘Bring your own packed lunch’ is stated on the tickets and some other stuff too.

Here’s what I got up to in pictures… 
Tempting Cake's gorgeous sweets display
Crumbs&Doilies cupcake tower
Sausage Roll cake by BSGUK
Peggy Porschen brought her parlour to the show!
Gingercups retro cupcakes
Baker & Maker sold tons of gorgeous bits and bobs! 
Kate Shirazi sold her book selection along with aprons!
Fish and chips cake - cake and bake show competition 
Betty Crocker masterclass
Piece of cake anyone? C&B
So there you have it! If you went, what did you think? I'd love to know your thoughts!
Love Em xx
