Cake International

11 November 2015


A record breaking 1000 competitors enter cakes and sugar creations at Cake International in Birmingham over the weekend.  For 3 days passionate and talented sugar artists came to celebrate with live demonstration.

The Chocolate Experience was hosted by Will Torrent and included celebrity guests from The Great British Bake Off - Frances Quinn, Edd Kimber and Martha Collinson.  

The Cake International Stage welcomed international industry icons including Carlos Lischetti, Peggy Porschen, Queen of Hearts and Rosie Cake Diva.

With live demonstration theatres and stalls showcasing the very latest products and ingredients there was plenty to entertain and inspire.  Books were signed, recipes shared and cakes admired including a full size cake statue of Maleficent and HRH Prince George!


I was delighted to showcase 4 designs each day this year - including:

Chocolate Coffee Hazelnut Torte with hand moulded, gilded  Satinice Chocolate fondant roses 

Faberge inspired no bake chocolate biscuit cake covered in Satinice 'Jerry Springer' regal purple fondant and hand decorated

A gorgeous traditional Christmas Wreath cake with poinsettia,gingerbread men and candy cane

I finished the set with a Lime and Pistachio Roulade with homemade lime curd and Creme Chantilly

Thank you to all of you who joined in my 'Six tiers of Separation' and to the winner of a place on my Coworth Park Christmas Masterclass on 8th December.


A highlight of the weekend was the annual Cake Masters Awards - celebrating the vert finest in the industry.  The black tie event brought together cake artists from a over the world.  Congratulations to all the nominees.
