The exhibition centre is brimming with baked goods, lollies, sweets, chefs and cake decorating workshops, food, drinks and even a chocolate river this year. I had visited the Cake, Bake and Sweets show last year and I was very overwhelmed with the array of delicacies, and samples- yes samples….samples…yes you can sample. My belly hated me, but my tastebuds loved it.
I took my Wee Man with me this year, and even tough he was surrounded by chocolates and cakes he was very well behaved and only enjoyed a chocolate chip (yes a chip not plural) and the most incredible serving of Salt and Feta Balls from Ilias The Greek, whom was also selling Halva- which I declined because I knew their slab would not make it home, let alone back to the train station.
We both enjoyed looking around at all the pretty chocolates and cakes, there are some amazingly talented people out there, their craft is stunning.
Wee Man decorated a cupcake using the new range of icing products by Dr. Oetker, which you can find here.
There were so many beautiful artisan breads, gorgeous chocolates and indulgent macrons.
Every year I buy a ‘wagon wheel” for my mum as it’s one of her favourite biscuits. Although the ones you find at the Cake, Bake and Sweets Show are huge, full of marshmallow and ridiculously extreme! Thank you Bethy Cakes!
We also picked up a few samples of ‘mug cakes’ from Well & Good that make a huge range of gluten free goods.
The Show is a perfect day out, especially if you like sampling all the sweet treats and perfect to pick up and baking equipment at bargain prices.
