I would like to thank Marcela Capó for her patience, work and disposition. She is a great person and excellent professional. Many thanks also to the girls for her participation, they came with a lot expectation and motivation ….. You did great girls : )
It was a wonderful day: we meet new people, we exchange ideas, secrets, tips and the most important we were so productive! Every student made two projects. We start with the modeling: a Girl with a dog, of course everything was handmade, Marcela’s technic is great!…after finishing the first project we had a short break for refreshments and eat a little bit. Charge with energy again we start our second project: Animal Print that consisted of hand paint, in the shape of a flower and the elaboration of two pretty and little hand bags…the results were amazing! I will not continue to write but instead I want to share some impressions with you of this wonderful day.

A week ago i wanted to post but like always the time!! The time!! That never seems to be enough. But here I am to share with you my visit to the Cake International that was held in Birmingham. Was the first time that I visit such a big event and it was a wonderful and great time. There were many exhibitors where you can find the most renowned brands , professionals and suppliers of all the cake decorating world . I had the opportunity to meet lovely people and see the latest in tools and materials in cake decorating and a lot more.
Even if the exhibition was held for three days I was only able to visit it for two days. I am already planning for next year to stay all the three days! 🙂
The first day i visited the stands that took most of my interest. The second day I tried to visit most of the other parts of the fair. Some stands were very crowded others not so much. The area of competition was very impressive, cakes of all size, forms, colors and shapes could be found and some of these creations were just amazing!!
It was nice to meet Marcela Capó from Argentina with her wonderful books, videos and magazines with great tips for designs inclusive step by step instructions. Elaine Thomas, the winner and gold medalist in Sculpted Novelty cakes didn’t have a stand but she was demonstrating how to model THE CUDDLY RABBIT ( very cute) . Tal Tsafrir, was showing her magic books and modelling. Also Debbie Brown with her wonderful books and creations was present. Lindy Smith and Karen Davies had stands with full of a great variety of tools, materials and designs as only they know to do. These two days were incredible interesting and helpful to see new technics, trends and tools. I met some great people and maybe new contacts. Even though two days were tiring at the end of the day it did feel very satisfied 🙂
Following I post some of my personal impressions even I did make a lot of pictures more.
