London hosts Sugarcraft & Cake Extravaganza
Cake International – The Sugarcraft, Cake Decorating and Baking Show
The world’s largest cake decorating show is making its debut at Alexandra Palace this spring with a visual feast of sugarcraft and cake decorating from 16 – 17 April. The event, which attracts world-wide attention from cake decorating enthusiasts, is the perfect place for baking fans to stock up on supplies and marvel at the extraordinary creations on display.
The competition area will showcase the incredible efforts of cake makers from around the world with hotly contended classes covering floral sugarcraft, celebration, novelty and wedding cakes as well as the ever popular cupcake. Visitors can enjoy the astonishing creations fresh from the judges table and see for themselves the skill behind the exquisitely handcrafted pieces. Each entrant will be competing for coveted awards from the professional judges, led by Cake International’s Chairman of Judges, Brian Taylor. Inspired artistry underpinned by utmost care and skill will be in abundance and is one of the highlights of the show.
Taking inspiration from the competition pieces, visitors can learn some of the techniques of cake decoration for themselves at the show. Under the guidance of cake decorating and baking experts who will each bring their immense skill and passion for their craft, visitors can take part in workshops. There will be regular informal sessions on cake decorating techniques, while the Taste of Sugarcraft mini workshops are the perfect place to learn new or brush up on existing skills. A host of making and taster sessions will be available throughout the show and visitors are invited to roll up their sleeves and have a go.
