Cake - Bake, Decorate and Eat
The crowd-pleasing Cake Bake & Sweets Show (CBSS) is back in Melbourne over three days in July. You can expect cake making, tasting, and buying, along with celebrity appearances, the Love Cooking Live Show and the World Food Championship Australia qualifiers all under one roof.

Some talented celebrity cake decorators, pastry chefs and chocolatiers will be demonstrating at the super theatre. Anna Polyviou, Miguel Maestre, Kirsten Tibballs, Adriano Zumbo are amongst the celebrities who will be making an appearance.

There will be hands-on masterclasses to help you improve your cake decorating skills, as professionals teach you to use tools and techniques to take your decorating to a higher level.

Workshops to help you hone your cake making and decorating skills are being held each day. The workshop subjects are diverse, and include learning to make wafer paper flowers with Monica Cavallaro ($230, tickets here), choux perfection with Masterchef star Emelia Jackson ($250, tickets here), and learning how to make cannoleria with Chef Dario ($100, tickets here).

Please note that all workshops must be booked and paid for separately from your ticket purchase.

Think you're a talented cake decorating artist? Then put it to the test at the Bakesale Art of Cake Competition. Choose your category and get baking! A $30 entry fee ($10 for primary aged children), puts you in the running for cash prizes of up to $2500.

If you or your child is a talented baker and decorator, why not enter the Bakesale Art of Cake Competition?

And of course, there will be retail opportunities. Find all your baking needs, as well as sweet and savoury baking delights from some of the country's best artisan producers.

You can choose from four ticket types to get the most from your CBSS experience. General tickets ($23 - $30) allow you to attend on one day - choose the date when you book. You'll have access to free sweet treats, workshops, masterclasses, giveaways and the super theatre.

Flexi entry ($28 - $35) is like a general ticket but gives you the flexibility of not having to select which day you'll attend at the time of booking.

At the time of writing, Flexi Family Offer tickets, for two adults and two children, are on sale at $70 (normally $116). Like the Flexi entry tickets, you don't have to decide which day you will attend at the time of booking.

Or go all out for the ultimate CBSS experience and treat yourself to a VIP Ticket ($145). Your VIP Ticket will get you priority entry and seating in the exclusive VIP lounge, along with:

- unlimited food and beverages

- meet and greet opportunities with the celebrity chefs, including a photo session with your favourite chef, and

- a delicious lunch prepared and served by one of the celebrity chefs.
