Bronze Award at the Cake International Awards 2014

April 29, 2014

A few weeks ago I took part in my first Cake International competition which was held at the London Excel center. My entry was in the Wedding Cake category and the cake needed to be 3 tiers or more. The cake that I entered was a 5 tier cake with 2 different height tiers combined in a purple / fushia pink colour scheme…

When designing the cake I wanted to create something very pretty, but bold. I created handmade roses, peonies, hydrangeas, lilacs and freesia buds in a combination of light pinks, fushia pinks, purples and lilacs. I really wanted them to compliment each other. The flowers were placed on the top in a dome and at the bottom of the board. I also created a large purple gumpaste bow on the front which I wanted to look like had been tied from material draped around the tiers. I was really happy with how the material looking gumpaste turned out (although it was extremely challenging at times to get the folds just right).

I really loved being part of the competition and it was amazing seeing all the visitors to the show looking at my cake and I got really lovely feedback. I really didn’t expect to be awarded anything, but I was really delighted to get a Bronze Award. There were things I could of improved on, and the Cake International competitions have such a high level of amazing cakes, so I will definitely be entering the Birmingham show at the end of the year to try and improve on my award. I really love the colours and tier combination of the cake that I created and I hope you all do too.
