Cake show: Oodles of astounding confectionery creations

There were some pretty stunning (and delicious) cakes, pastries and biscuits on show at the annual Cake, Bake and Sweets expo in Melbourne this weekend (October 4 and 5). Our roving reporters, Judy and Becky Gonsalves, captured plenty of images of the thousands of amazing confectionery creations on display, including an incredible life-size white chaise lounge which was 100% edible, a world record chocolate flower bouquet attempt and, of course, wedding cakes galore!

The finishing touches are put on a 100% edible, life-sized chaise lounge. Even the walls of this stand were covered in icing! Wedding cakes of all shapes, sizes, colours and themes were on display.

Hold up. Is that cakes AND macarons? OMG. Deeelish!

And here are a couple more pictures, from the show’s official Facebook page.
