I had entered my Strawberry Daiquiri Cupcake Recipe (to be posted here soon) to a competition. I was so thrilled to win a VIP pass on Friday night with Coffee Cake and Kink which also included another great experience of baking Black Forest Cupcakes on the main stage with Paul De-Costa Greaves.
The VIP lounge included a show guide but at first did not seem like much – a few tables and chairs next to the main baking stage. However soon there were refreshments out – and the day started kicking off. We grabbed a quick juice and then got stuck into looking at the cakes and their awards. Sophia did a little modelling class…as I don’t have the patience – like asking your parents to teach you to drive. She did so well, and I barely had to help – I was so impressed, she even told the teacher that rabbits have whiskers – “So I’m adding my own!”
We then returned to the lounge – and Mary and Paul were on the main stage. It was brilliant, we grabbed some more refreshments which now included sandwiches and crisps sat down at our little table, and had an amazing comfortable view!
The other fab thing arranged by CCK was to go on stage with Paul De Costa Greaves, we had a good catch up before (in the VIP lounge while he had a sandwich and Sophia probably had her 10th and another juice)
Time came to get on stage; I was really chuffed to see the lovely Isabelle (and husband) from Let’s Bake Cake in the front row giving support!
|Not entirely sure what Paul was describing here but it was this big! ;-)|
I will add another blog with some pictures of cakes!
