An event that has “cake” in its title? Definitely, count me in! You know how much I love cake, just look at the amount of courses I have taken to create nicer cakes and the recipes I post on this little blog – spoiler: it’s mostly sweet treats. So, when I first heard about the Swiss Cake Festival, I was absolutely thrilled. It took place for the first time last year. Sadly, I’d only found out about the event two days before it started that it exists and oh well, can you guess what? IT WAS SOLD OUT. But this year, I am definitely not missing out and you shouldn’t either.
This year, the Swiss Cake Festival takes place in Stadthalle Dietikon on October 22nd and 23rd. Next to stands of cake enthusiasts and baking shops, you can also take part in several courses to improve your baking skills (I honestly wish I could afford some of them like Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium – Luxury Wedding Cake Course). Moreover, there’ll be a competition with different categories like wedding cakes, 3D cakes or even a category for children that are up to 12 years old. This year’s topic for the competition is “Swissness” – it’s going to be very interesting to see the creative realisations of the different cake designers.
Compared to last year, the Swiss Cake Festival grew: Instead of only 2,700, there will be 4,000 tickets available for the festival that will take place on 2,000 m² and there are more courses than last year.
Next to looking at amazing cakes and learning how to create them yourself, you can attend several demos, buy your baking materials and obviously, eat loads of cake! (Don’t worry, there will be salty snacks, too, I heard!)
I’d totally understand if you’re now saying: This sounds awesome! Where can I get tickets? And there’s actually two ways. The first one is HERE. Yes, you’ve read right. The organisers of the Swiss Cake Festival offered me 2 x 2 tickets to give away to TWO lovely readers. All you have to do is to fulfill at least one option (bonus entries for every additional option you fulfill!) in the Rafflecopter giveaway below. This giveaway is international, but I’d kindly like to ask you not to participate if you know that you cannot attend because of travel costs etc. if you’re not from Switzerland.
The second way to get tickets is very obvious: Buy them. They’re starting at 20 CHF per person, so are not too expensive.
Good luck if you joined the giveaway – and maybe we’ll meet at the Festival in October!
