I just returned from the cake and bake show at CTICC. At first glance I very disappointed in the show. It is small and you pay R80 to get in. I decided to overlook this and tried to make the best of it. Things I enjoyed are the demonstrations (there are only 3 stations for demonstrations, however at the different stands the exhibitors are busy with fondant and sugar work and they were freely sharing their advise and gave tips on how they do several techniques.
At the Bakels stand they were baking bread and after 20 minutes or so you could help yourself to freshly baked bread. They also had a few chocolate fountains with marshmallows, cookies and cooking demonstrations…definitely the best stand at the show.
They had a station where kids were decorating cupcakes, cookies and the last time I passed by there the kids were rolling out bread for something that looked like sushi with cream cheese and avo.
Value baking supplies were selling cake decorating supplies, pans and other baking goodies, saving me a trip to Brackenfell.The size of the show allows you to take your time at each stand, listening to the tips and you will definitely not miss a thing.
