We’re not the only baking enthusiasts either. New research shows that 41% of Brits bake at least once every two weeks and the average consumer eats home-baked goods more than four times a fortnight. The Cake and Bake Show promises ‘everything the home baker, sugarcrafter, cake eater, amateur enthusiast or professional baker’ could need. There will be demonstrations from expert bakers, a food market, stands selling the latest must-have culinary equipment, as well as workshops for you to try your own cake and bake skills out. Plus, the stars of everyone’s favourite baking programme, the Great British Bake Off, will be making an appearance. Baking legends Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood will be at the show along with series one winner Edd Kimber and last year’s champion, Jo Wheatley.
I’ll be heading down to the show to see if I can pick up some pro baking tips. Expect a follow up blog post with some serious baking porn photos.
The Cake and Bake Show 2012 takes place on 22 and 23 September 2012 at Earls Court exhibition centre. Visit the website for tickets (starting from £12.50 for adults) or visit the Facebook or Twitter pages.
