Organised by Silovoglio Events, the
second Cake Design Italian Festival
took place on 26th and 27th May at
the Sheraton Hotel in Milan Malpensa
Airport. Over 9,000 visitors came
to learn the secrets of British cake
decorating, take part in activities and
see demonstrations.
The award for the best entry in
the ‘I wanna be a cake designer’
competition among amateur cake
designers was won by Ivana Guddo
from Sicily. There was also a live race
between five competitors from all over
Italy to complete a cake in one day
which was won by Amerilde, a cake
designer from Puglia. Another very
popular competition was dedicated
to the wedding cakes, sponsored by
Letizia Grella and Domo Adami: here
the style and class of Beatrice Mao’s
creation crushed the competition.
The Squires Kitchen stand was run
by our Spanish and Portuguese
Business Manager, Meri Ruiz, who
was accompanied by our talented
demonstrators, Susan Griffiths, Ceri
DD Griffiths and Carlos Lischetti,
who demonstrated to a large
audience. The Squires Kitchen stand
proved to be a popular attraction,
drawing crowds of enthusiastic
sugarcrafters. Cake decorating is
becoming bigger and bigger in Italy
and Squires Kitchen was proud to
be part of it.
