Friedrichshafen – The fourth edition of My Cake from the 14th to the 15th shows what is important in the production of Fault Line Cakes and with which tricks great fondant cakes are created. May 2022 in Friedrichshafen. More than 50 exhibitors from nine nations present everything related to creative baking, cake design and decorating. “Sniff the smell of cake, be inspired and shop for baking accessories – as southern Germany’s largest cake fair, My Cake finally invites you to shop again,” says trade fair manager Klaus Wellmann.
“After a year of corona-related break, everyone involved is very happy to be able to meet again to exchange ideas about the latest baking and decoration trends,” adds project manager Julia Graf. Numerous workshops, live demonstrations and a wide range of products from biscuit cutters to sugar sprinkles to chocolate printers await the cake community. This year, the international fair for cake design and creative baking is all about the topic of “Zeppelin” – from the collaboration “Help with Cake” to the cake competition, which dedicates an entire category to the big airship, to zeppelin flights that will be raffled on site.
Also in Zeppelin fever is artist Nicola Keysselitz from Key for Cakes, who shows in her workshop how to design a comic character from fondant: modeling fans learn what is important when forming a cake topper in the form of the Count von Zeppelin. As part of the jury at the “Edible Cake” competition, which revolves around the topic “The best bee sting”, she also evaluates the cake creations of the hobby bakers this year. The different interpretations are closely examined in terms of appearance, consistency and taste. Since the first edition of My Cake, she has been organizing the collaboration “Help with Cake” and also this year she designed cake works around the airship in advance together with 15 cake professionals, including Sebastian Kronseder, Meera Jamal and Maria Cristina Schiazza, which can be admired during the fair. In addition to the cakes, small goodies of the professionals in the form of biscuits and cupcakes are auctioned as part of the raffle. “The proceeds will also benefit the Bodensee Children’s Foundation this year. I am pleased to contribute to enabling disadvantaged children and young people to live a better life, says cake professional Nicola Keysselitz. The cakes of the collaboration will then be exhibited as a permanent exhibition at the Festspielhaus Neuschwanstein.
There is also a lot to see inside the cupcakes that Jessica Schilling makes with the help of her specially developed product: The so-called CuCap, a silicone mold that is pressed into the raw dough of the muffins, creates a recess after pulling out of the finished muffin. The filling is then added there. “There are no limits to creativity here: jam, fruity compote or jelly work just as well as nut nuga cream, almond butter or chocolate drops,” explains the expert. In this way, the ready-baked muffins do not have to be laboriously hollowed out and there are no cake leftovers. But the heat-resistant CuCap, made of food-safe silicone, is not only suitable for sweet creations: If you prefer hearty muffins, add cream cheese or avocado cream. But the journey is not yet over for Jessica Schilling: new products are already being planned for next year.
The international fair for cake design and creative baking will take place on Saturday, 14th and Sunday, 15th. May 2022 and is open on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday until 5 p.m. The day ticket costs twelve euros, reduced ten euros. The family card is available for 28 euros.
