The Cake & Bake Show is back for another year and the 2014 edition is serving up some seriously delicious treats. Top name culinary creatives including Rachel Khoo, Lisa Faulkner and Phil Vickery are taking to the stage with live demonstrations and helpful baking tips across the weekend. Top chocolatier Paul A Young, Britain's Best Bakery's Mich Turner and Peter Sidwell, and the four champions from the Great British Bake Off are also on the bill, ready to showcase their skills and wow baking enthusiasts across the three-day festival.

Those with cake cravings or a passion for pastry can take classes, attend real bread demos and browse the hundreds of stands offering state-of-the-art baking equipment and the latest sugarcraft supplies. There's also live cake decorating, bake-offs and the CakeBomb Jungle, featuring life-size animals made entirely from cake.

I'm a keen baker so I love going along to the Cake and Bake show. This year it was held at the London Olympia and we saw an awesome demonstration by Nadia Hussain. I think the show is a great opportunity to push the boundaries of baking, learn new techniques and explore some products. There were endless samples and competitions this year, it was a great day out! The quality of the show bakes was phenomenal!

Every year, my Mum and I visit the Cake and Bake Show (for the last couple of years with my almost 3 year old daughter). This is a fantastic day out for keen bakers and those looking for inspiration or new ideas. Perfect for the time of year, there are always plenty of vendors of Halloween and Christmas themed baking equipment etc. You could spend a fortune on the “tricks of the trade” items but be careful as you can usually get everything cheaper online. Great for picking up ideas and tips though.

The first couple of times we visited we paid to attend the workshops. However, we have decided not to do that the last couple of years as they are pretty expensive and seem to be quite similar in theme each year. Plus we would rather have the extra time for shopping and eating cake!

All in all, a lovely day out for a family of Mary Berry wannabes!
