This weekend, BAKO NW visited Cake International, when it returned after last year’s success to Manchester’s Event City. Bakers from around the region flocked to the show in their thousands to share their passion for all things baking and cake decorating.
Over the course of the three-day event, local bakers put their skills to the test in the competitions, with categories including wedding cakes, cupcakes, and sculpted novelty cakes adorned with sugar-paste characters and decorations. After seeing last year’s winners, we can definitely say the standard was raised a peg or two this year, with some of the most impressive cakes BAKO NW have ever seen in its 50 years of working with the region’s bakers.
The show also welcomed star guests including Mary Berry and Britain’s Best Bakery’s Mich Turner, who shared their expertise with bakers in a series of demonstrations.
