Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show London 2014

A few weeks ago a friend and I popped along to the Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show, and boy, did we eat A LOT of cake...

The general set up of shows like these is having various company stalls selling their related goods and celebrity guests, who will do a masterclass, interviews, book signings and whatever else! They're great value for money and brilliant for inspiration, as well as picking up a bargain or two!

I met the baking Queen herself, Mary Berry. We later queued up for her book signing and said hi, although there wasn't much time for a chat over a cuppa!

The stalls on offer were amazing with a chocolate corner, baking supply area and seating area in the middle. To break up all the cake eating, we had fancy sausage rolls (Pork and Chorizo, I'll have you know!) for lunch which were equally delicious!

I had to take a picture of this stand. They were selling cake stands, but you could mix 'n' match what style of plates and sizes you wanted! I loved the idea and really wished I picked one up for my sister for Christmas.

Another cool thing was this baking tips wall, where people would leave their baking tips and tricks for everyone to see. There were quite a few 'Listen to Mary Berry' tips!

Various interviews and book signings were held throughout the day, and needless to say Paul Hollywood's and Mary Berry's were the busiest! They were both so lovely and are exactly the same as they are on Great British Bake Off.

A couple of beautiful cakes we saw dotted around the event. I adore the above three tier flower cake - definitely on my future wedding mood board! All the detail and time spent in perfecting the icing, as well as the taste, is astonishing and I'd love to be as precise and creative with a skill like that!

As part of our ticket we also got to watch a baking masterclass by Mary Berry, who baked muffins and flapjacks and made it all look so easy! Paul came and joined Mary later, and taste tested all her food. The banter and chemistry they have between them is hilarious and so entertaining - almost as good as Mel and Sue...

So there's my Bakes & Cakes experience! Let me know what you think of the cakes in the comments :)
