Amazing bakes at NEC’s Cake International show...
IT’S Anar- cake- y in the UK! Surely that’s Sid Delicious...
And isn’t that the frosty Night King from Game of Scones?
The NEC was full of familar faces last weekend. And they’re incr- EDIBLE.
Because the Cake International show has brought all manner of bakes to Brum.
There’s everyone from Dobby the Harry Potter house elf to David Bowie.
And even a cake in the shape of a life- sized BABY.
Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it?
Thousands of cake- making and baking fans attended the annual show of sugar, spice and all things nice.
They had a Mary Berry Christmas early. On show were spectacular cake decorating, sugarcraft and baking. It was a chance to chew over the latest trends and techniques while attending cutting- edge workshops and demos. You could see some of the biggest and best cakes in the country.
The most impressive was a fullsized horse and soldier inspired by Michael Morpurgo’s First World War novel War Horse pictured above.
Created by Emma Jayne, among the ingredients she used were 50 kilos of marshmallow to create the feature, which weighed in at more than 20 stone. Another of her creations was a show- stopping life- size wedding dress.
Originally displayed at Cake International London 2017 as part of Wedding Gowns through the Decades, the cake took 60kg of sugar paste and 50kg of modelling paste to create.
It took ten days in all, five of them making its more than 1,000 flowers.
