Brisbane Cake Expo

What a weekend! First Gold Coast, then the amazing River Fires on Saturday night and to finish up the Brisbane Cake Expo in Windsor. If heaven looks anything like this  place then take me now ahahaha

I’ve been waiting to go to this event since I first saw it a couple of weeks ago on Scoopon, which was fortunate as I wouldn’t have ever heard of this any other way but also unfortunate.. I was too late to enter the cake exposition for any of the categories, but after seeing what was displayed I know that I have to up my game for next year and hopefully you’ll see me there 🙂

From the moment I walked in, my friends had to pretend not to know me.. I was embarrassingly excited about the event and was constantly jumping up and down at every amazing cake!

So we started up with a prize draw section where you had the chance to win cake supplies-ingredients, followed by a room with private classes to model sugar paste. So many cake stands and cupcake sales, too much choice and so many good things to eat!

Apart from the really cool organisation and disposition of the stall which allowed really good flow and not too much traffic in the aisles, pastry and decorating classes were advertised and honestly I might take on one of these as a treat 🙂 IMG_5565 this cake has been made in a days work! INSANE!  and it looks so real I could drink it LOL

Then comes the best part.. The competition and voting of the best cakes!

At the entrance of the event everyone gets given 5 tickets, 5 different colours for each category, each of which had 5 cakes and a box with the name of the baker. The voting system was quite straight forward: place the coloured ticket in the same coloured category for your favourite cake. I wasn’t able to stay ’til the end but I have a hunch on who won in which category 😉

This Alice and Wonderland cake has definitely won. Can’t believe the skills to do such a masterpiece! Don’t think I could do this even in my wildest dreams.. but trying doesn’t kill 😉

So there you go! I’ll keep my eyes wide open and get ready for next years expo, I feel too inspired and don’t even know where to start! 🙂 🙂

Ciao for now! xxx
