Cake decorators, pastry artists and many more are certain to benefit from attending the upcoming International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), which will take place September 7-11 in Las Vegas.
The Retail Bakers of America Bakers Center, brought to you by Bundy Baking Solutions, will feature 42 demos on two stages. On the Revent Celebrity Stage, there will be 11 demos, including presentations by Buddy Valastro Jr., Ciril Hitz, Peter Yuen, Nicholas Lodge, Jacquy Pfeiffer and Bread Bakers Guild of America bakers/members Jory Downer, Matthew McDonald, Nicky Gusto and Solveig Tofte.
On the American Cake Decorating Stage, there will be 11 demos, including presentations by Kathleen Lange, Jorg Amsler, Bronwen Weber and Ruth Rickey. In one corner, there will be a Skills Station, where you can try your hand at fondant molding and other hands-on skills. Amsler is among those cake decorators who will do sessions.
The RBA Creative Cake Decorating Competition will also be held within the pavilion and hosted by acclaimed host and food show presenter Angela May.
“Cake decorating is truly an art form worthy of recognition, appreciation and celebration,” says Lynn Schurman of the Retail Bakers of America. “There is no better place to experience the artistry and passion of cake decorating than at IBIE — the international stage where the entire industry gathers. During this prominent contest, teams will compete for the Pillsbury Bakers’ Plus Grand Champion Trophy.”
