What to expect

  • The Cake and Bake Show London is going ahead with new COVID-safety measures in place in response to the latest Public Health England, World Health Organisation and government advice.
  • The Cake and Bake Show is the UK’s biggest baking event held at London’s international convention space, the ExCeL Centre.
  • Catch cooking demos and talks from celebrity baking experts, shop for the latest kitchen gadgets, browse elaborate table displays and even sample some of the best bakes around at the Show’s market stalls.
  • Don’t miss the jaw-dropping Cake Competition, where stunning decorations will leave your mind boggled and your mouth watering.


With over 30,000 attendees, from top-tier professionals to sweet-toothed kids and families, The Cake and Bake Show is the largest baking event in the UK, with functions in Edinburgh and Manchester as well as its main event at the ExCeL London. Every autumn this 100-acre leading event space is filled with the sweetest smells and tastiest treats the country has to offer as hundreds of bakers show off their stuff. The centre of all things baking, cake decorating, fondant and sugar craft, The Cake and Bake Show features live cooking shows from celebrity experts at The Baking Theatre, birthday and wedding display tables to get you inspired for your next big event, market stands from the UK’s leading artisan bakers to sample and shop from, plus opportunities to get your hands on the best baking gadgets around. There is a Kids Zone where children and families can get hands-on with some super fun baking and decorating activities, and even a Cake and Bake Bar and Pamper Lounge for you to unwind in afterwards. One of the event’s most exciting elements is the renowned Cake Competition, a treat for both the eyes and the taste buds. See cake decorations like you never have before where the Illusion Competition will leave the whole family stunned as you try and work out how the displays can possibly all be edible (spoiler - they are!).
