Something Sweet: The Cake International Special

Hey cake chums!

Welcome back to another issue of Something Sweet – your weekly slice of all the latest news from the world of cake!

This week, we are talking all things Cake International, checking out just a fraction of what was happening at the show and just some of the amazing cakes on display.

As always, we have our regular features, but this week, they’ve just been given a bit of a Cake International spin; including all the Cake International news from Mr Baker’s Cakes: The Blog, we find out about the competition dramas that emerged earlier this week in Have You Heard? and there’s even a little shout out to all of the retailers and vendors who worked their socks off over the Cake International weekend.

I’m shining my spotlight on Cake International judge, Sylvia Elba and finding out all about the brand new Cake de la Cake International Cake Design Competition, as well as meeting another talented maker and finding out which Instagram profiles regularly inspire Hannah Edwards of The Cake Illusionist.

I’ve also gone a little bit rogue with some of our other regular features too, so look out for a WOW Cakes and a Cake of the Week feature with a difference too…

Obviously, as I have already said, this is merely a snapshot of the weekend though, so if you feel I missed out something important, I do apologise!

Enjoy the issue – you can find it at this link.

Welcome to your first Something Sweet of 2019…

Hey hey hey, cake chums and welcome to 2019’s first issue of Something Sweet from Mr Baker’s Blog, your weekly slice of all the latest news from the world of cake.

Plenty of you got in touch this week to tell me what has been happening in your corner of planet cake, so thank you to everyone who dropped me a line. I’ve done my best to ensure that as many of you are featured as possible, including a rather welcome new year update from my friends over at Fabricake, a bit more of a preview of the upcoming Welsh National Cake Show and we check out a beautiful collaboration, courtesy of the Cake Page Circle collaboration group.

We also check out the new eight-week online sugar flower course from the Suzanne Esper Cake School, which starts today AND she kindly shares her latest free tutorial for a beautifully stunning peony.

We also have a gorgeous tutorial from Ashley Barbey of The Little Vintage Baking Company and, in our community section this week, we meet another talented maker, find out which talented UK caker created a gorgeous wedding cake for her brother this week and, of course, we crown our first Cake of the Week winner of 2019!

Also featuring: Sugar Geek Show, Becky Jenkins Sugar Artist, Moya Sugar Art, Global Sugar Artist Network, Eat Cake Party, Bake Cake Create, Totally Sugar, Catalina Anghel azúcar’arte, Emma Jayne Cake Design, The Crafty Kitchen, The Polkadot Teapot and ZL Cake Boutique.
