Tomorrow I’m off to London again with my Mum to drag her around some more events so I don’t have to go alone! We went to the Cake International exhibition at the Excel earlier this year, and this weekend we have tickets to the Cake and Bake Show!
I have also been invited to pop over to one of the Royal Albert afternoon tea tour locations. As we happen to be in London already, we will be popping over to the tour which will be in Kew Green all day! Royal Albert china is hosting a vintage themed afternoon tea tour in different places around London over the coming month. This event will take place on Kew Green, but if you cannot make this day then here is a list of the other dates and venues:
27th September: Soho Square
28th September: Fitzroy Square
5th October: Spitalfields
The event is aimed at women who enjoy afternoon tea, quintessential
English themes and vintage style. A decorated van will be popping up at
various London locations serving free afternoon tea, macaroons and cakes
to all those who attend, with themed costumes and props available for
those who feel inspired by the occasion and would like to dress up and
get polaroid photos to take away with them too. The van (and the ladies) looks super cute!
Royal Albert also sent me a pair of these Wedgwood Harlequin Collection Daisy Cup and Saucers! Aren’t they pretty? So retro. I love tea cups!
After we’ve popped over to the Afternoon Tea, we’re going to the Cake and Bake Show
at Earls Court. It’s the first live event dedicated to the world of cakes, breads and the art of baking. The popularity of all things related to cakes and breads is on the rise, and now for the first time, this expanding industry will have a dedicated live event bringing together all its followers in the heart of London. The show features live demonstrations by top celebrity speakers, hands-on classes, market stalls, live competitions and much more.
The Cake Kitchen will contain star speakers from the cake world, showing sugarcraft skills and the latest techniques. The Bakery will be showing the country’s top artisan bakers demonstrate bread baking in the Cake & Bake Show’s live demonstration theatre. Squires Kitchen International School will also be doing demos, including a presentation on starting a Cake Decorating Business from home.
Then the areas that I’m most looking forward to: The Marketplace; containing market stalls showcasing freshly baked produce, and hopefully cakes! The Supplier Zone: a one stop shop for all baking equipment needs, where you can source all the tools of the trade from the country’s top suppliers. Wedding Cake Showroom: a chance to get up close go the creations of some of the country’s leading wedding cake designers. Sugarcraft Showcase: where sugarcraft skills will take centre stage with demos from the industry’s most respected cake artists. And then finally, Peggy Porschen’s Parlour: where all the wonders of her couture cakes Belgravia boutique will be recreated.
I’m so excited! Is anyone else going?
