We came, we saw, we caked. And when it was all over, we shed a few tears… of joy!
Here are some of the moments we captured of the weekend on Facebook Live. Aaah, memories…
Cake International 2016
Let’s start where it all began – the set up. Watch a quick wee clip of David and Paul setting up the stand on Thursday morning…
Next up – setting up the table for our Pro members’ Christmas display. We were joined by over 50 of our students, who had created festive designs based on an online tutorial or from Paul’s Christmas book. Note – Paul still in his high vis vest, even though no one else was wearing one, he got quite attached…
And then our Facebook followers witnessed the arrival of three well-known cakers – Michelle Pattinson (or Mish, to the PBSS family!), Tracey Rothwell and Emma Ball. It was all hands on deck to get set up!
Christmas is definitely coming in these next three Facebook Live posts… See the lovely Christmas cakes arrive and get everyone into the festive spirit.
Paul gives us a quick round up of all the lovely cakes that have arrived by Thursday night. Aren’t they incredible?!
It’s the big day! And Cake International is about to open its doors. In this video Paul gives us a quick run through of all the cakes on show and explains why we love coming to Cake International.
Paul starts to get a wee bit nervous about his judging responsibilities. If you want to see a levitating cake (yes, really!), watch until the end.
Post-judging, Paul mingles and takes a trip to some other stands. You may see a few familiar faces…
If you’re only going to watch one video – watch this one! Paul chats to our lovely Pro members about their cake creations. Lots of happy faces and some serious hard work on show.
Watch Paul representing Scotland at Cake International, with a demonstration of his Rockin’ Rudolph Cake – completed in a record time.
Another demo – this time it’s the sold-out Crystal Palace Wedding Cake demonstration on Saturday afternoon.
We watched from the sidelines as Team UK and Team Rest of the World battled it out in the Saturday afternoon bake off. This pretty funny video cuts out at the end, but we can reveal the UK team clinched it.
It’s party time at the Cake Masters Awards on Saturday night! And the champagne’s flowing…
Not quite live, but too important to leave out – the moment we won a Cake Masters Award! Thank you to our lovely Pro member Bettina Evans for catching it all on camera.
It’s party time! Watch Paul and the crew cut some shapes on the dancefloor.
Phew! Time for a lie down! Seriously though, thanks to everyone who supported us at Cake International and everyone who came over to say hello. We had a smashing time!
