The general public is welcome to take part in a full program of masterclasses, activations, entertainment and more.
International Cake Show Australia CEO, Joan McDermott said the event was set to become a new cultural tourism attraction for Australia….. “The International Cake Show Australia is open to the public and is all about creating magic, defying possibilities and breaking boundaries. For the millions who watch Cake Boss and follow the hundreds of thousands of edible artists on social media, this event is the penultimate experience, and to have it staged here in Brisbane as the national showpiece is certainly a coup for the city,” she said.
