The organisers of Cake International – The Sugarcraft, Cake Decorating & Baking Show, which took place from November 8-10, have described the event as a great success.
“As the largest show of its kind in the world, having celebrated its 20th birthday at the NEC where Mary Berry and Mich Turner appeared as celebrity guests, our flagship show saw 25,000 visitors attend the three-day event,” they said.
The show received over 1,000 entries to its cake competition, a 65% increase on last year. Popular creations included an almost life-sized Johnny Depp cake dressed as Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean, which was the work of Lara Clarke, an amateur baker from West Midlands.
The highly coveted ‘Best in Show’ award went to Rose Macefield for her fishing themed cake, which featured a fishing basket, rod, net and trout.
