Wow, what a fabulous day I had at the Cake International - The Sugarcraft, Cake Decorating and Baking Show 2012, held at Birmingham this week.
Here's what ended up buying during the day.
4 Edible ink pens
10" board and box
Pearl lustre dust
5 sheets of chocolate transfer sheets
3 packs of chocolate
Heart shaped piping nozzle
Simple Things magazine
There were a few items I had planned to buy at the show but once I had seen them I realised they were not what I was expecting, something you can not always tell before purchasing online. Next year I hope to do less shopping and participate in more of the demonstrations at the show.
I'm looking forward to trying out the chocolate transfer sheets I picked up from The Cake Decorating Company stand. They had an amazing selection and it was difficult to choose just five. Can you see those big bags of chocolate drops, well one of those is peanut butter flavoured and I've got something special planned for Christmas.
As always there were an amazing collection of very skilled cake decorators exhibiting at the show, here are just a few that caught my eye.

These little cupcakes were part of a display at one of the stands. I was particularly taken with the Tulips, which are simple but very effective.
Next time I go to the show I will try to remember to check that I don't have my camera setting on 'food' for all the photographs!
I would like to thank Lizzie at Cake International for providing me free entry to the show and the use of the Madagascar and Harry Potter photographs.
