From Rosemary Shrager’s very cheesy scones to Juliet Sear’s cupcake wreath, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Demonstrations on the Baking Theatre are free, with plenty of viewing areas and seating on a first come first serve basis.

Additionally, you can also visit the Sugar Craft Stage so you can touch up on your piping knowledge and learn new, advanced fondant techniques.
