Last year me and my mum took the short train journey to the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester. Not sure quite what to expect i was quite taken aback by how much cakey goodness had been packed under one roof. From the simply outstanding life size gingerbread village to all the stalls, cakes, books and demos that were on offer. We both came away laden down with purchases, a whole host of new ideas, inspiration to get creative in the kitchen and a vow to keep our eyes peeled for the next event.
This weekend the 4th - 6th of April the Cake and Bake Show returns to Manchester Central with a fantastic line up of star speakers including Frances Quinn and John Whaite and several other competititors from the Great British Bake Off. A wide range of classroom and bakery demonstations across the weekend alongside free sugarpaste modelling sessions and several different types of competitions. There is also a Welcome to the Jungle feature which is the UK's most ambitious sugarcraft installation which sounds like its not to be missed.
The fun doesn't stop there either with a great selection of exhibitors for all types of baking enthusiasts and cake fans. There is bound to be some treats in store too!
