BCN and CAKE 2016
Telling you about this festival was the yeast we could do.
For 2016, BCN&CAKE returns for a 5th edition. Are you a fan of pastry?. Whether you like to prepare cupcakes, muffins, cakes, and other desserts, or you just like to eat them, then this fair was made for you.
If you're a professional and you want to make your mark, expand your clientele, or increase your knowledge then you can reserve a stand of 4 sq. m for €692, 6 sq. m for €1080, or 12 sq. m for €2150.
Established in 2012, it has since risen to become one of the largest and important meeting points for the most creative minds and the most delicate hands in Barcelona and Spain. The venue is the Barcelona Maritime museum where you will find the latest from the exhibitors, including shops, schools, bakeries, workshops, ingredients and utensil wholesalers, and more.
Not only can you try and admire the most creative and amazingly decorated desserts from exhibitors, but you can also make your own at the workshops, competitions, and other activities related to baking. There are also activities especially for the little bakers too, to get them into the spirit of cake-making. The fair is completely family-friendly so bring everyone along! It won't be a half-baked day out!
