Friendship & Cake

Yesterday I was lucky enough to
get to visit the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester.


My dear friend Shelley won tickets from Lakeland and I was blessed enough to be invited along. So on the train we went for a day full of fun and no children woo hoo.

The Manchester Central when we finally found it was packed solid with queues out of the door. After waiting impatiently we entered a hall full of stalls selling everything the amateur cake decorator and baker could want.

Sugarcraft butterflies to tractors tins. Demonstrators, workshops and so much more


I was super excited by the bread baking equipment and treated myself to a cane proofing basket.

It was a fantastic day just enjoying friendship and shopping.
Getting to chat while we browsed the stalls what more could a girl want.

The show was a great day out, with companies like Lakeland and Baking, Sainsburys, Dove farms and Dr Oetker it was a well planned event.

Celebrity bakers including my heart throb Paul Hollywood were in attendance. Simply fantastic, Simply gorgeous.

Beautiful cakes, artisan breads just blissful.


My only complaint would be that it needs to be at a bigger venue as at times it was impossible to reach the stalls or watch the demonstrations. Also there wasn’t enough chairs to rest upon,

I returned happy with my new basket, new recipe book and some yummy cheese

An amazing day made more special by the friend I shared the day with.

A fantastic or should that be a taste-tactic day.
