cake fair 2017

we interrupt our halloween posts to bring you a special event i got to attend this past week in orlando called:
ok so it wasn't actually called that as you 
can see by the pic but it was pretty much 
one of THE coolest events i got to return to 
after i attended their first one back 
in 2015 that i never got around to blogging about it when it was called the Orlando Cake Fair.

it's held at the orange county convention center 
which is basically a city in itself seeing how humongous 
it is but when you walk in, 
you see this:
see those mannequins up there?
they are dressed in sugar. no kidding.
it's for their fashion show where of course they use real models.

i could attend that show for a mere $150 but i chose to go the cheap route and pay the $30 general admission fee that basically let's you run around the event in all your glory.

and run around i did cuz i HAD to check every single vendor there and oogle at all their wonderful cake and food craft items. i was in heaven.

and i couldn't help but think of other bloggers too like Beth of Hungry Happenings, Kim the Partiologist, Sue of Munchkin Munchies, Karen of Sugartown Sweets, and etc etc etc.

holy heck folks like these woulda gone 
gaga as well as getting broke. 
lordy know i spent my dollars there!

cuz look at just some of the stuff they had there! 
every freakin' food craft thingamajing 
you could think of and more.
it was that and about 100 other more displays!

and if that wasn't enough they had event stuff too of course.
and lookie who else they had!

yup. and they had even more celebrity chefs 
from the food network and TLC and more!
they had some go on stage and talk about their work and show some cake demos.

i went to see these 2 cuz i had so much more to see.

like the following incredible unbelievable and out of the box over the top million other things to see.

let's look at this one again!
when you are done picking your jaw off the floor, 
here's another showcase cake to look at.
oh and we can't forget baby grinch is there!
and yes, these too, are all CAKE!

as you can see there's a 
serious serious serious cake competition.

you can actually sign up for classes 
to do some of this stuff.
i didn't cuz, duh, i can't even...
(cuz if i started a cake like the showcase ones, i'd end up lookin' like that scary head in the pic you just saw when i pull my hair and skin and eyeballs out! lol)

wanna see these in person yourself? 
go here and check out when it'll be happening again, 
and maybe i'll see you there cuz i'm already signed up to go for the next 100 years they have it.

so what did you think when you saw all that?!?
the world is full of awesomeness.


  1. Oh, my word!! Beyond unbelievable!!! Gorgeous and incredible!!! What people can do with sugar (besides get fat) amazes me!! The flowers look so real!! Thanks for sharing this....and I didn't gain a pound!! Dona

    1. i know Dona! i took soooo many pics i ran outta storage on my cel! lol i would freeze my cake and keep it forever if it ever came out like any of these! :>D

  2. They would have had to drag me out of there kicking and screaming! It's probably a good thing we don't have an event like this nearby because I would have to go back to work to pay for everything I would want.

    1. BAHAHA!!! you have a very good point there Sandra Lee! as tired as i was after four and a half hours there, i didn't wanna leave either but i had to go back to work! 😆

  3. I am SOOOOO jealous and excited for you to get to attend the cake fair, it looks out of this world amazing! Something I have had on my list for years...maybe someday!

    1. oh my gosh Kim you would die if you went-from all the stuff they have and then you'd have to have a moving truck haul it all away from what you bought! LOL :)

  4. Lisa,This looks like it was amazing. I bet you came home with even more ideas for your creative food posts. Thanks for sharing at the Inspiration Spotlight party. I hope you have a great Halloween btw.
