This weekend saw the second annual London Cake & Bake show and I was back to demo cake pops in one of the classroom sessions. This time, to promote my new book, trEATs! It was great to meet up with some fellow bakers and I also got to have a look around the show and see some other demos and stalls. Here are some of my highlights.

I also caught a bit of Edd Kimber and John Whaite's cookie bake off at the competition stage. We heard about what's keeping them busy and life on the Great British Bake Off - it sounds tough!
The other great thing about the Cake & Bake show is getting to see some of the new trends in baking coming through. It was good to see more market stalls this year too. Some of the highlights for me were the colourful display from the Meringue Girls, my local favourites Outsider Tart with their over the top brownies, crystallised flowers from Eat My Flowers and Meadowsweet, creative biscuits from Cinnamon Tree Bakery, beautiful painted macarons from Nevie Pie Cakes, classic (and vegan) cupcakes from one of the original London cupcakers, Ms Cupcake and crazy colourful biscuits from Bee's Bakery.
