Well a cup of tea often goes perfectly with a slice of cake. And baking is having a major revival in the UK, as it seems thousands of people want to get in on the act. Recently, the Cake and Bake show took place that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth.

Intricate iced lace, glowing paper towers with tealights and frosted wedding cakes are just some of the designs being cooked up at the Cake and Bake show. And this year, wedding cakes of all shapes and sizes are taking centre stage at London’s Cake and Bake show. Some other trends include detailed bordering, architecture, and avante-garde designs.

Rosalind Miller, Bespoke Cake Maker, said, "Obviously the paper cutting technique, that I have used here and illustrative cakes, metallics, are a big trend and the use of gold and silver leaf. Watercolour painting on cakes is another trend. Lustred effect and different height tiers."

Recently, the Cake and Bake show took place that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth.

At the event, eager bakers can also learn the tricks of the trade at classroom workshops, with 30 minute demonstrations covering a wide range of subjects from cake and breadmaking to eclairs and ganache.
