The Cake & Bake Show 2012

Last week I attended the blogger launch of The Cake & Bake Show at London's Earl's Court.....
"the first live show dedicated to the world of cakes, breads and the art of baking".

Like it wasn't enough that - to my great excitement (having voted her my no.1 place in London for cupcakes)  - the launch took place at Peggy Porschen's Cake Academy....we also got to meet and watch as they each made the most fantastic creations, Peggy Porschen, Edd Kimber, Paul A. Young and Natasha Collins.

It was an intimate evening and all four of the above were without exception super-talented, interesting, fun and very generous with their time & with sharing their knowledge & experience.....

Peggy made the most beautiful rose decorated cupcakes, with Edd we all got to make passion fruit and chocolate macarons, with the amazing & super-enthusiastic Paul we made the best truffles I have honestly cross-my-heart ever had and with Natasha we painted "corgi" biscuits.

Having somehow missed the first two series of "The Great British Bake Off", my family & I are glued to the current series....Edd was the winner of the first series two years ago, has just launched his second book and will be appearing at & demonstrating his skills this week-end at The Cake & Bake Show.

All four of the above will be appearing at show, along with many other cooks, bakers & speakers including Mary Berry & Paul Hollywood from The Great British Bake Off.

Tickets are selling fast for both days of the show but are still available for Saturday evening 5-9pm if you are interested in attending.

  1. I too missed the first two series of the Great British Bake Off...and now I am also addicted to series 3 - oh the drama of last night's episode!

  2. This is my first time watching the GBBO and I'm addicted too. It certainly has made baking fashionable again. Hmmmm, I might consider getting tickets to the exhibition also .
    TYSM for your lovely comments over at mine. Will e.mail you for our "meet-up".xx

  3. It looks like a very tasty event especially all that chocolate! xxoo

  4. Oooo looks delicious. I haven't seen the GBBO but loads of friends back home are glued to it and baking like crazy. Here in Portland we are spoilt for choice with cupcake shops - I'm still trying to get my little Ruby to eat more than the frosting though!
