This weekend Cake International arrived at Alexandra Palace in North London, for the second Spring show! Unlike the NEC shows, the show isn’t open to the public on Friday, apart from the dropping off of competition pieces. The entries are then judged on Friday and the award cards are put out on Saturday morning just before the show opens.
As usual, it was a fun packed weekend for me! On Saturday I got to catch up with some cake friends, got to have a good look around the show and then did a cupcake demo on the Cake International Magazine stand as well as my ‘Cupcake Masterclass’ in Theatre B. Then on Sunday I spent the day playing with pretty dusts on the Magic Colours stand before doing another demo on the magazine stand.
The highlight of this year’s show would have to be the amazing ‘Wedding Gowns Through the Ages’ collaboration, put together by Mish Pattinson & Planet Fluff. It featured a host of amazing cake artists’ wedding dress inspired cakes, including a life-size sugar dress made by the super talented Emma Jayne!

Cake International magazine also had a fab collection of cakes made by featured artists, including my own ‘Bon Appetit’ cupcakes, ‘Thank You Teacher’ cupcakes and ‘Mr & Mr’ wedding cake from the current issue.

And as per usual I took pics of all of the entries. Apologies that the quality of some of the pics isn’t great, I had some camera issues 🙁 If the pic of your cake is on there and is one of the dodgy ones, feel free to send me a replacement and I will upload it.
