Cake International

Hi everyone, I’m going to drop off my entry for the Cake International cake competition on Friday 8th.
I can’t stay because I’ve got orders to complete, but I’ll be there all day on Sunday so I can collect my entry after 5.30pm. I’d love to meet some of you lovely ladies if your there. I’ll be in the coffee shop at 11am if you fancy a natter on the topic of all things cake………please let me know if you’ll be there, I’d love to meet you xx
P.S, I’ll post my entry at the end of the weekend, so would love some honest feedback. xx

Hi Laura, have a great time, you’ll love it. There are some out of this world cakes every time. It is so inspiring, You’ll just want to get straight home and try out all the ideas you’ll have. Make sure you take plenty of money, and remember where you parked our car……there are so many car parks it’s easy to forget where your car is xx

Oh what a pity Elli. I’ve got a Christmas Craft fair on Saturday all day, so dropping and running back Friday to finish baking ready to sell, and then going back Sunday for the day to shop till I drop……on baking supplies, and collect my cake to bring back. Have a safe flight, and I hope you, Bev and Laura have a lovely day xxx :-)

Karen Flude ...

Thank you Shannon and Galina, I’m proud to say I received a Certificate of Merit for my cake entry. The competition was huge this year, over a 1000, entries, and the standard was off the scale.
Some cakes didn’t even receive an award, so I’m more than happy to get a Merit, and I’m very happy bunny!!
I know that Laura is going to blog and paste some of the entries soon. I’ve attached a photo of my cake with my certificate xx Thank you to everyone again for all your fantastic messages and such kind support xxx
