NEC Cake Show Birmingham pt. 2 – The return of the Yanks!

It’s been a while, but we didn’t get enough, so we’re going back in 2014!

Perhaps the greatest cake show on earth, Cake International, is held at NEC in Birmingham, England. Cake International is the world’s biggest consumer show for sugarcraft and cake decorating! There will be vendors from around the world and many famous cake artists such as Alan Dunn, Lorraine McKay, Stephen Bennison, and Debbie Brown, just to name a few. Choose from the latest range of cake decoration products and accessories and stimulate your creative ideas. Learn all the latest techniques from professional demonstrators who will be keen to share their knowledge and expertise with you.

With excellent workshops, exciting displays and live competitions – a visit to the show is a must for everyone who enjoys sugarcraft and cake decorating.

I’ve booked that same fantastic little 10 room townhouse in Alcester.  Roughly 20 miles from the cake show location, it’s a great example of a traditional small English village. We will have transportation to and from the NEC on cake show days, as well as some yet to be planned day trips to local points of interest. If you’d like to join us be sure to sign up soon before all the rooms are taken!

Custom Class with Mike McCarey

My friend Kimberly and I refer to Mike McCarey as “The God of Cake”.  There is good reason for that title. Mike McCarey can make anything in cake, and I do mean anything. While he was in Austin, Tx, for our annual cake show he told me about a 3-Day workshop he’s holding in his studio in Redmond, Wa, in which you’ll be able to make the cake of your dreams with Mike along to help you design and execute every aspect. That’s like getting Picasso to help you with the painting of your dreams.  If you’re a cake artist who wants to up your game, this is the class for you. Here are some details:

When: May 19-21, 2012
Where: Mike McCarey’s Studio, Redmond, Wa
Cost: $2000

This class is limited to 6 students and I understand that the May class has only one or two spots left. You will create your project from start to finish from finding resource materials to creating patterns to building your stand and executing the final product. Mike will be with you every step of the way. As if that weren’t enough, you’ll get to watch as the other 5 students build their dream cakes. Ohhh, to be a fly on the wall!

Sad News

Lorraine and I are deeply saddened to inform you that we decided to cancel her Seattle classes. Unfortunately not enough people have signed up for the classes and we just can’t afford to bring her over from Scotland for just a couple of students.

We plan to reschedule for 2013 and we will let you know as soon as we have settled on a date.

We apologize for this inconvenience and please know that no one is more disappointed than Lorraine, herself! She loves Seattle and is looking forward to a visit soon.

Classes for Lauren will continue as scheduled. Please click here to register.

Seattle Here We Come!

The Big Cake Calendar is happy to announce that Seattle classes with Lauren Kitchens and Lorraine McKay are open for registration. Classes will be held at the studio of Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Redmond, WA. Lorraine is happy to be returning and Lauren is looking forward to her first classes in the big, beautiful Pacific Northwest! We plan to stuff her so full of delicious seafood that she’ll want to return often.

Lauren will be teaching her signature Character Sculpting 101 class as well as her new Waffle Time class. Lauren is an expert at creating incredible structures and making modeling chocolate do her bidding.

Lorraine is an international superstar who makes the best figures in the business. Join her for her Bride and Groom class and learn to make custom cake toppers that will amaze your customers. She’ll also be teaching a special class on how to do her famous head and hands.
