The Cake & Bake Show

The Cake & Bake Show is coming to London September 22 & 23 at Earl’s Court. That’s two full days of cake demonstrations, competitions and shopping for cake supplies! Tickets are already sold out but keep checking back.

I was invited to an evening of demonstrations at the Peggy Porschen Academy ahead of the show so I can show you a taster of what’s to come! Peggy Porschen showed us how to make some lovely marzipan roses. Natasha Collins from Nevie Pie Cakes showed us how to paint on fondant. You can see the corgi I painted…I don’t think I should give up my day job just yet!

Edd Kimber, the winner from the first season of The Great British Bake Off, showed us how to make macarons and gave us a taster of his chocolate and passion fruit recipe. Paul A. Young gave us a chocolate demonstration. He showed us how to temper chocolate and make the most amazing truffles. The ganache is made 2 parts chocolate to 1 part water, which is great as it makes the truffles dairy free.

See you all at the show. You’re in for a great weekend!
