My first ever visit to a Cake International show. I'll be honest, I both loved and hated it. I was in heaven surrounded by so many beautiful cakes and everything you could ever want or need to make them. But at the same time, I was not alone. It was crowded! And I hate crowds. I guess it was at least good that I was on my own so I could squeeze my way through and see what I wanted at my own pace. But enough moaning about the crowd. I am glad I went and was truly inspired by some of the lovely works of art. I think I have found my true calling. I'm sure if you've looked at my blog you know I love to make sugar flowers. After viewing some of the competition entries I really want to have a go at creating a sugar flower display that would be worthy of one of these competitions. November maybe? We'll see..... Hope you enjoy the pics :)
This cake was from the Patchwork Cutters Display.
A miniature sugarflower dispaly from edable arts.
Chocolate Flamingos. Wouldn't this make an amazing wedding cake :)
Sugar Flower arrangements from the Renshaw booth
Umm, a little something about me, I collect frogs. I don't know why I just love anything to do with them. So naturally this little guy caught my attention. So cute :)
I love Royal Collars and Runouts.
I also love this for a wedding cake idea. I saw one similar before that had a dragon climbing the side of the castle.
This takes some crazy patience.
Loving the elegance and simplicity.
A froggy wedding :)
What little boy wouldn't dream of having this for a Birthday Cake. Will have to add this to my albumn of future cake ideas.
These tiny little displays just amazed me. Such intricate designs. I'm definately going to give this a go.
The large sugar flower displays. I felt really at home looking at these. I really want to create a beautiful display for one of these competitions. Can't believe that this one was only a bronze though. I thought it was georgous!
An Isomalt display at the Cake Decorating Companies Stand. Something else I would love to learn how to do.
So simple and so cute. A rice krispies cupcake. Great idea for someone who doesn't like cake (I know it's shocking but they are out there).

Not sure this is my cup of tea, but definetly took some skill and imagination.
