Feast Your Eyes on these Amazing Cakes!

Ben Cullen's Conor McGregor cake

Cake International is described as:

The UK's leading cake decorating & baking show and the world’s most prestigious cake decorating & sugarcraft competition. A must visit for all cake and baking enthusiasts.

Certainly a feast for all the senses! Today was my first time at Cake International, the largest cake exhibition in the world with over 1,500 exhibits on display. I was blown away with the colours, sweet scents and even the sounds!

Everyone from the cake world was there including my personal favourite Carlos Lischetti.

Ben Cullen

My daughter’s favourite baker is Ben Cullen ‘The Bake King’.

Ben only started baking in 2014 so there’s hope for all of us 🙂 His first ever cake was a princess castle for his girlfriend. They are still together and she hopes that he makes her a cake in the shape of a sloth (her favourite animal) for her next birthday. Ben has recently become famous for a caricature cake of Conor Mc Gregor.

Here are just a few of the spectacular cakes on exhibit this weekend. I highly recommend Cake International to anyone who loves cake!!!
