Cakes at the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester
Yesterday, I visited the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester. It was phenomenal! There were loads of lovely stalls with cakes, pies, quiches, meringues et cetera everywhere. There was so much to do, so much to eat and so much to learn.

I went on my own, took my camera and got stuck in having a good nosey round. A lot of the stalls catered to the cupcake industry and I was able to find loads of cupcake decorating bits and bobs that I'm going to incorporate in my macaron business.

Speaking of macarons, I went back to the venue yesterday evening for a quick demo in making macarons using the Italian method from Reshmi at Anges de Sucre. I make macarons using the French method, but I still learned plenty of tips and it was an informative session! Reshmi was a fabulous demonstrator. Next time I'm in London, I'll have to pop into her shop.

I mentioned I learned a lot at the show yesterday, and I did. I sat in on two hour-long demonstrations, one with Peter Sidwell baking up tasty bread and answering questions from the floor and one with Eric Lanlard, who made a stunning dessert from his latest cookbook. Eric also gave some pointers on whipping egg whites that I put into practice last night and produced some of the best macarons I've made to date. Here are a few more photos from the day. I didn't get to take too many as there was so much to do and so many people about, but I did enjoy it! The next festival I'll be blogging about is the Foodies Festival at Tatton Park. If you're in the Manchester area, tag along! It's going to be a great day! Also, ask me how you can get your mitts on a pair of discount tickets!

Three quick things about features and Anyonita Nibbles:
  1. I've been featured
    Did you know you can see where I've been featured on my snazzy Media page? Why not go ahead and have a look? You can click the links to be taken to my featured post. Or look out for features badges on relevant entries.
              Note: There are no links for the etail feature as it hasn't gone live yet and the Best Blog Recipes feature will be disclosed on Monday along with a little surprise!
  2. I'm looking for features
    If you clicked that link, then you might have noticed that I'm looking for people to feature in the form of guest posts! If you'd like to share one of your recipes with a new audience, then get in touch! For criteria, head on over to the Media page!
  3. I want to be featured again
    I've been bitten by the features bug and now I want more! I'm looking to feature recipes on other blogs! If you're accepting guest posts or would like me to create something/share something I've already posted, then let me know! If you choose a previously published post, I'll rewrite it so it's different from what's here. I've also got a backlog of images for each post I write, just for guest posting opportunities. Let me know!
