How Sweet it is! Do you enjoy baking, sweets, and desserts like me? Then you have to attend Canada’s Baking Sweets Show presented by sweet Sugar purveyors RedPath!
With an Alice in Wonderland theme, from September 27 to 29, 2013, we’ll get to venture down the rabbit hole and enter a world full of sugar, spice, and everything nice.
I’m super excited to attend and hope you will be too!
An an avid baker 😉 …I’ll have an opportunity to speak with like-minded and dessert loving people.
The Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro will be present to speak about his love affair with cakes and other delectable goodies; we’ll also get a sneak preview of his new Bakeware line at Canadian Tire. I’m always on the hunt for durable pans so it will be interesting to hear him speak about the qualities we should look out for and why his line is a cut above the competition!
If you’re lucky enough to reside in the New Jersey area, you can sign up for technique/baking classes or order cakes from Carlos Bakery http://www.carlosbakery.com/
Learn from Brian Emmett on what it takes to be crowned Top Amateur Baker on CBS’s The American Baking Competition. I think his chat will resonate with many people who start out like him. He’s a person who simply bakes because there’s a lot of pleasure to be derived from it; he reminds me that it’s always a positive to pursue your passions in life. It’s not just about workin’ the daily grind to bring home the bacon!
Also in the line-up, is Canada’s own Cupcake Girls (Heather and Lori) from B.C. to dish on the roller coaster of a ride it’s been so far in terms of running a bakery/sweets shop. With some great advice mixed in, alongside a dose of quirky and lighthearted storytelling, it’s guaranteed to be an enjoyable time. You can catch their show “The Cupcake Girls”, on WE tv.
I cannot forget Chef Anna Olson: having met her on numerous occasions including at Ravine Vineyards (Niagara on the Lake) and the Eat to the Beat event (Willow Foundation, Breast Cancer Charity Gala), it will be a pleasure to see her take the stage at Canada’s Baking and Sweets Show.
I’m looking forward to hearing her speak about her successes, her favourite items to bake, tips on how to make the perfect cake, tart, cookies, etc., and for her to talk about her show ‘Baking’ on the Food Network. At last! The return of a ‘non- drama/reality’ show that actually teaches you how to make desserts!
Last but not least is French Chef Christian Faure M.O.F. He has an impressive resume and his background and training in Baking and Pastry Arts had given him opportunities to work alongside the best and the brightest in the industry. Although, it cannot be stressed enough that the man himself is quite a legend.
From working in the Prince of Monaco’s Palace, alongside Chefs Mario Muratore and Alain Ducasse at the Grand Hotel de Paris, working for royal families in various Arab countries, gracing us with his presence with his beautiful creations in the VIP village at the Vancouver and Salt Lake City Olympic Games, to being the guest of honor at the G8 G20 Summit in Toronto, there’s no shortage of talent coming from this brilliant man.
The Baking and Sweets Show is at The Toronto Congress Centre (650 Dixon Road).
