Today is my birthday, I don't want to work too hard, we went out for dinner and now I want to just relax. Here are some of the amazing cakes and treats we saw at the Baking and Sweets Show.
There were lots of cute balloon desserts.
A lot of meticulous work. I guess if you are being judged by the Cake Boss you need to step up your game.
The picture below is rows and rows of mini cupcakes with colored chocolate discs on top. Neat idea!
There were lots of pretty cookies and chocolates. The coconut macaroons were excellent.
Pretty cake work and sugar flowers.
The main attraction. BUDDY the CAKE BOSS. The stage was also made out of hundreds of balloons.
I couldn't get very close. There was about 5000 people there and it was packed. I also didn't really want to stand in the mobs of people trying to get really close so we were several rows back. He talked for about an hour and a half, telling everyone about how he got started and his focus on family. It was great. The show maybe loud and filled with drama, but he was really down to earth and friendly. It was fun. He also judged the professional baking competitions with the The Happy Baker.
The overall Baking and Sheets show was good but has lots of room for growth. There were lots of great booths, with desserts, designs and baking supplies. There were several locations doing demos and classes with regards to cake decorating, flowers, modeling and baking. The trick was finding the time to attend them all.
Can't wait to see what is on tap for next year.
