After two successful years in London and Manchester, the Cake & Bake Show sponsored by NEFF are packing up their whisks, mixing bowls, baking tins and heading to Scotland for the first time ever – and as part of the official Cake and Bake Blogging Team, I’ll be keeping you up to date with show news and giving you the opportunity to win tickets to this great show.
This exciting show, run by events management company Media 10, organisers of Ideal Home Show Scotland, will be in Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre from the 30th – 1st November, and set to attract over 18,000 visitors.
The introduction of the show couldn’t be better timed. It’s Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink 2015 and the best of the country’s baking industry will be brought together under one roof for a show filled with live demonstrations, bake offs, interactive features and exciting competitions.
The Cake & Bake Show also reflects the rising popularity of TV show Great British Bake Off and it has broken new ground by leading the industry in becoming the first event dedicated to the world of cakes, breads and the art of baking.
Cake & Bake Show are ensuring they have all the ingredients covered by bringing a host of celebrities to Scotland during the three day event.
Getting into the mix will be foodie expert Gregg Wallace, celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, Aaron Craze of Saturday Cookbook, actress and winner of Celebrity Masterchef Lisa Faulkner, TV chef Phil Vickery, French pâtissier and celebrity chef Éric Lanlard, as well as Coronation Street star and Celebrity Masterchef finalist Wendi Peters.
Joining them and whipping up a storm on the Super Cake & Bake Theatre will be the nation’s favourite baking stars Jo Wheatley, Great British Bake Off winner from 2011, John Whaite, the charismatic winner of The Great British Bake Off 2012, as well as fellow seasoned baking star Brendan Lynch.
VisitScotland Regional Director Manuela Calchini, commented “It is fantastic that the national Cake and Bake Show will be coming to Edinburgh in Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, which is all about promoting our finest produce and encouraging visitors to experience the wealth of fantastic food. I can’t wait to go along. The show will be a foodie ‘must-visit’ event for three days at the Royal Highland Centre offering a superb chance for our country’s home-bakers and artisan producers to show off their skills and demonstrate why Scotland is such an outstanding destination for great baking.”
Lee Newton, Managing Director of Media Ten said, “We’re extremely excited to bring the Cake & Bake Show to Scotland for the first time. We identify strongly with Scotland, which can be seen with our other brands, such as the Ideal Home Show and we also want Cake & Bake Show to have a presence and become an integral part of the country’s annual events calendar. We’re also especially delighted that we’re bringing this show to Scotland for the first time during the country’s year of Food & Drink.
