Christmas is a special moment or time where friends/families get together to spend the holidays. It is also a time where the kitchen is one of the best places to be.
Warmth emanating from goodies being baked in the oven to smells of luscious spices adding its mark from stoves, the kitchen really is my favourite place to be.
This year, The Ideal Home Show is introducing a competition with a twist of Christmas spirit in it. What is your favourite Christmas cake? Bake it and bring it to the competition and you might just walk away with the title of 'Ideal Christmas Cake Decorator of the Year'.
Hope to see you there...
Please see below for more details...
This year’s competition will see aspiring cake decorators from around the country decorating stunning Christmas cakes for the chance to be crowned this year’s ‘Ideal Christmas Cake Decorator of the Year’.
The highly anticipated cake decorating competition will ask entrants to create a cake that reflects their ‘Ideal Christmas’.

The cakes will then be judged by our esteemed judging panel, including Tarek Malouf from the Hummingbird Bakery.
The cakes will remain on display for the remainder of the day and prizes will be awarded in a dedicated prize-giving ceremony hosted on the Christmas Craft Theatre at 3.45pm. Contestants are welcome to take their cakes home with them after the award ceremony
