As featured in Something Sweet Issue 2 and sponsored by Zoopla, the Ideal Home Show has returned to Olympia London from the 17th March to the 2nd April 2018. In their own words, ‘From kitchens and bathrooms, to bedrooms and basements, fixtures and fittings to fine food, gardens and the latest in home renovation, to fashion beauty and gifts, you’ll find it all under one roof at this award-winning show.’
‘But why are you mentioning this in your cake and baking blog?’, I hear you cry! Well, this year, to commemorate the upcoming royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on 19th May 2018, the Ideal Home Show has invited amateur and professional bakers to enter the Royal Wedding Cake Competition being held at this year’s show. Tasked with constructing a wedding cake fit for the royal wedding itself, entrants’ creations displayed are being displayed throughout the 17 days of the Ideal Home Show for visitors to see.
Although we now know who will be making the actual royal wedding cake, naturally, I still have to pop along to check out these wonderfully constructed masterpieces for myself and will be heading up to the big smoke this coming Sunday, the 25th March.
I’m told that the show is well worth a visit – not only to check out the cakes on display – but also to see some of the incredible displays, exhibits and panellists in attendance.
Oh, and the cake competition is also being judged by our very own Rosie Cake-Diva, so I’m looking forward to a jolly good catch up and gossip with the queen of Extreme Cakes herself.
If you fancy joining us, tickets for the show are available from seetickets.com and do let me know if you are heading down, so I know to look out for you on Sunday!
