The Cake & Bake Show at Earls Court, London 13-15 September
You can imagine my excitement at being asked to exhibit some of my work at The Wedding Cake of the Future Showroom at this year’s Cake & Bake Show at Earls Court cant you!
Immediately I started coming up with some wild ideas, and when I was told that I only needed to do a minimum of two cakes, I turned round and said “I’ll do FIVE!” After all, I had at least twenty five ideas so it was going to be hard to narrow it down from that! The organizers were obviously thrilled that I would be able to fill a fair amount of space for them, and I was thrilled that I could get my creative head on too.
What I obviously didn’t stop to think about in all the excitement was the amount of time that I would need to actually properly design, buy products, bake, carve, sculpt, sculpt again, paint, paint again, step back, decide I hate them all and start again!!!!
Nevertheless, I am down to do five cakes, and five cakes they shall have! At the moment they are all top secret, but I can tell you that two are finished (ish), one is half way there, the fourth is at its humble beginnings and the fifth is on the easel. Im still not panicking though, after all, sleep can be overrated!
