Have you ever tried to replicate those cakes or cupcakes that you've seen on The Great British Bake Off? I know I have, but I have yet to experience any success. When trying to create an intricately designed fondant covered cake for a friend, I ended up with a mess of too thin fondant and melted icing dripping down the side of an extremely lopsided cake. This is why I am thrilled to tell you about the Squires Kitchen Cake Decorating Exhibition. This event has everything your fondant covered imagination could ever think of. When this event caught my eye in The Amazing Blog offices, my inner baker just about passed out from frosting induced excitement.
