Food & Hospitality Africa 2017 takes the cake

| Marketing and Promotions

The exquisite art of cake decorating will again be a big attraction at Food & Hospitality Africa powered by Hostex at Gallagher Convention Centre from 7 to 9 May, which can be experienced at the SA Cake Decorators Guild (SACDG) master decorators display and demonstration theatre.

The guild’s theme this year is ‘A Celebration’ and the sugar art will feature a wide range of skills including figure moulding, royal icing work, sugar flowers and more. Says Deon Swarts, Deputy President of SACDG, “The artworks for the show take weeks or even months to complete, and will be kept as a closely-guarded secret until revealed on our F&HA stand.”

In addition to the master cake decorators’ work on display, as part of a three-day programme from 10h00 to 16h00 daily, some of the guild’s top cake artists will demonstrate classic and new cake design techniques such as mirror glaze, pulled and filled sugar flowers, and chocolate work, which will be beneficial to cake designers, confectioners, chocolatiers and pastry chefs.

Online pre-registration for Food & Hospitality Africa powered by Hostex is available on
