The show will be taking place on 2nd & 3rd April 2011 at the Radisson Hotel, Little Island, Cork. Competition classes will include wedding cakes, sugar flowers, novelty carved cakes, sugarpaste cakes, and miniature exhibits. These will be judged by accredited British Sugarcraft Guild Judges, the best in the profession, ensuring that the same standards are met as at any other event. Louise will be entering two wedding cakes, one of which will be a novelty themed wedding cake and the other a traditional wedding cake. We are hoping for the same success as in Birmingham last November where Louise won two gold awards and a first place in category, so the pressure is on to create two more fantastic cakes. There will be plenty of demonstrations and classes over the weekend and there will also be traders selling the very best and latest in sugarcraft equipment. Louise is now making the last adjustments to the designs which will remain a secret until just before the show (sorry guys but this is serious stuff…!!). She is looking forward to the show and it is a great experience to be involved such a competition. “These exhibitions and competitions are a great place to get inspiration, learn new skills and techniques and fill me with enthusiasm“. The show only happens once every two years and is one of only two competitions in Ireland which are judged by the British Sugarcraft Guild, the other is held in Dublin and is also, only held once every two years (next year). So with a bit of luck we will be bringing back the gold to Leitrim once again.
