The Cake & Bake Show is taking place at Earls Court on September 22nd & 23rd and is the first exhibition dedicated to all things baking. Here at MummyPages we love baking with our kids, so this event is going to be a fantastic treat. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family, like children’s workshops, competitions, demos and marketplace, so make sure you bring the kids.
The biggest names in baking will be giving demos at the show including Great British Bake Off judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood as well as winners Edd Kimber and Jo Wheatley. Eric Lanlard of Cake Boy, Richard Bertinet, Fabulous Baker Brother Tom Herbery, Much Turner, renowned chocolatier Paul a Young and many more will also be taking part over the two day event.
One event that we simply cannot wait for is the Family Bake Off competition, which takes place on the Sunday. This competition, which is working with Grainchain education curriculum, has separate competitions for children aged 8 – 13 and 14 – 18. Teams of one parent and one child can enter their best cake or bread recipes, which will be judged by a team of experts. The top four will be invited to the show, with the public deciding which two go through to the final judging by Paul Hollywood himself.
If your child is a little baker in the making, why not book them into a free baking workshop in the Kids Kitchen in association with Grainchain. Some of the country’s star bakers will be leading the workshops, like Jo Wheatley and Annabel Karmel. Annabel will be bringing elements of her hit CiTV series Annabel’s Kitchen to the show.
If you enjoy eating more than you do baking there will be a terrific marketplace where a huge selection of artisan produce including breads, scones, pies, brownies, pastries, and, of course, cakes will be on sale. When you want rest your feet, you can visit The English Afternoon Tea Room in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Cake & Bake Show promises to be a fun-filled event bringing fans of baking together. For more information visit
