18 months of planning, all worth every minute. Cake Love 2011 was beyond a huge success, and I am so proud of what the members of the Vancouver Cake Society Jennifer Shaw, April Bellia, Mark Tagulao, Erlinda Jalandoon and myself pulled off.
Cake Love 2011 was a three day cake decorating conference in Vancouver B.C., featuring hand on classes from 15 of the best sugar artists and cake designers from around the world, including Norman Davis and Zane Beg, Ruth Rickey, Anne Heap, Susan Carberry, Becky Rink, Pat Jacoby, Jacqueline Butler, Lauren Kitchens, and Canadian Lisa Bujega, just to name a few.
Classes ranged from life like gumpaste flowers, folk art painting, and edible jewelery to the whimsical topsy turvy cake and muppetized figures.
Lisa Bujega's "tea for two" class creation
Norm and Zane's Purse Ladies Purse cake class creation
Creation's from Lauren Kitchen's creature sculpting 101 and 301.
The there was also a cake display room that featured work from the conference attendee's. This room was open to the public.
A couple of my favourite submissions.
There was also a live cake challenge at the banquet, where attendee's created amazing cakes with little tools and supplies:
I myself was lucky enough to take part in a few classes. Stay tuned for my next post that features what I learned with Anne Heap of Pink Cake Box.
