Cake and Bake Show 2013

Sorry (not sorry) for the excess of photos here, as you can see there was a lot on offer at the show! A couple of weeks ago I went to the Cake and Bake show in London with my mum. It was the first time I'd been, and I have to say I was slightly disappointed at the lack of free food on offer, I think it should be mandatory for all stalls to give out free samples. That being said, I did try a few tasty bits and bobs. One major criticism I have was that the stalls were extremely close together, probably a marketing ploy to force people to panic buy, but it did get a bit overwhelming at times! The actual show had some great features, such as getting to see Eric Lanlard and John Whaite bake some food in the (gorgeous) flesh. I also bought some lovely daisy patterned cake cases, always a bonus. There were some incredible cakes on show, as well as a man sculpting Batman out of chocolate (!!), and a pretty incredible Queen cake accompanied by a corgi. I doubt I'll be going back next year, but it was a really great experience, definitely a must for anyone who loves cake!
