Cake International Tickets – Giveaway #12
Cake decorating is an art I haven’t quite mastered. I seem to lack the necessary patience to create a glorious edifice or maybe it’s that my mind is concentrated more on the taste than the look. To be honest, I’m not really interested in the high art of sugarcraft as the homemade look resonates more with me, but I would, nevertheless, like to improve the overall finish of my cakes. Sadly, I am not destined to attend that most prestigious of cake decorating events, Cake International: the Sugarcraft and Cake Decoration Show. My skills, will therefore, remain basic – for the time being. However, I do have a pair of tickets to give away to one keen cake decorator.
Cake International: the Sugarcraft & Cake Decoration Show is an annual event held at the NEC near Birmingham on the 9-11th November 2012. It is the place to go to learn about cake decorating, discover the latest techniques, buy books and get them signed by the authors and to stock up on those more unusual and hard to find supplies.
And it’s not just about decorating either. In addition to the plethora of decorating demonstrations given by cake decorators from both the UK and abroad, you will also find baking demonstrations. After all, who wants a beautifully decorated cake that falls apart or fails to fulfil its promise in any other way? If you fancy trying out sugarcraft, but don’t really know where to begin, you could attend a workshop to get you started on some basic techniques.
I was very pleased to discover that chocolate has not been forgotten. Top tips for creative ideas in the art of chocolate are on the programme and a chocolate box Christmas house complete with smoking chimney will be on display.
There are lots of competition classes to enter too, including two-tiered wedding cakes, shoes & handbags and cupcakes. Each day of the show will feature a live decorating challenge and to tempt you, a grand prize of £1000 is being offered. The deadline for competition entries is 26th October 2012.
A one day ticket is £12 or £10 if ordered before 5 November
Photographs were taken at last year’s show by Susan of A Little Bit of Heaven on a Plate who has very kindly allowed me to make use of them. Do take a look at her posts covering last year’s show: Cake International Part 1 and Cake International Part 2
