In the latest instalment of Cake International’s three-city tour of the UK, this weekend the legendary cake show heads to Birmingham’s NEC centre, much to the delight of local bakers.
The three-day event will feature an impressive array of attractions, including demonstrations, book signings and workshops with cake decoration experts Renshaw. Star guests Mary Berry and Mich Turner will even be making an appearance to share their baking expertise with the professional bakers and amateur cake enthusiasts at the show.
As one of the key suppliers to the North West food industry though, perhaps the most exciting part of the weekend for BAKO will be discovering which bakers take home prizes in the National Cupcake Championships. The BAKO team would like to wish all the finalists good luck in the contest, including Emma King of Funky Food Café in Southport who created her signature Best British Hero cupcake using BAKO ingredients.
We’ll be sharing Twitter highlights from the show next week, but for now here’s how bakers in the region have been preparing for this prestigious industry event:
