Down memory lane at the Cake and Bake Show
It was a #caketastic day out last week with a trip to the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester!
It was trip down memory lane for me, since I spent many summer holidays in the city with my Great Aunt Emma. We travelled from Yorkshire by train to Manchester Central Railway station, and now this former railway terminus has been converted to a major exhibition hall.
Emma's Rock Buns were the best I’ve ever tasted.
What a wealth of wedding cakes, baking ingredients and cake decorating equipment. Indeed, everything you might need to make that glorious creation.
We managed to find a quieter spot for a lunchtime break and try a slice of Bradleys Bakery wonderful Cheese and Onion Pie.
My highlight was to meet @ChrisPBlackburn, the Yorkshire Pudding King from Halifax. Chris was a contestant on ITV’s Food Glorious Food and Yorkshire Pudding Champion, so has a fantastic pedigree where all things Yorkshire are concerned. We had a great #baking #chat and agreed to a Blog post swap later in the year. Did you visit the Cake and Bake Show?
