Blend, Bake, Cool!: All About The 2017 SoFlo Cake & Candy Expo in Miami

Posted by

 Bakers and Instructors Reunite at the Largest Cake & Candy Expo in South Florida

Imagine a place where you're in a room full of cakes and experienced cake decorators, some of which you might even recognize from TV. Ever wonder what that would be like? 

Well at the SoFlo Cake & Candy Expos, attendees can indulge in a wide range of frosting samples, different baking supplies from cake vendors and even watch live demos of cakes coming to life! 

Just last week on April 28th-30th in Miami, Fl, Sweet Life Cake & Candy Supply of Miami, hosted the annual 2017 SoFlo Cake & Candy Expo at the Miami Airport Convention Center. Bakers and enthusiasts alike reinited to browse the bakers' and vendors' products and creations, while exchanging their tips and tricks of their craft. The expo also offered different specialty classes available to the attendees, like bejeweling cakes, painting powder colors, and sugar sculpting. And some of the leading baking experts in the industry, did interactive demos of techniques they use to decorate their sweets! 

They even gave away "swag bags", or totes filled with special giveaways of useful baking supplies and frosting from vendors. 

Guests came from as close as the U.S. and as far as Trinidad and Tobago to join the huge crowd of talented bakers for this 3-day event. The skill levels of most bakers that attended ranged from novice intermediate, and advanced. The best thing about this expo? Is that the baking supply manufacturers and distributors are right there to sell you high quality baking molds, fondants, sugar pearls, isomalts, and other candy and cake supplies, no matter the level of experience a baker is. So even if you're a novice baker with an insatiable sweet tooth for cake artistry, you can always ask a manufacturer for more advice on what to buy. 

According to Natasha Connor, the co-owner of the SoFlo Cake & Candy Expo, "The baking supplies from the manufacturers are available at trade show pricing." This means that you get a discount on the high quality supplies which sometime come with a high price tag. Sounds like a pretty good deal for bakers who want to buy their supplies in bulk!

Making the Simple out of the Complicated

Simple yet complicated.

When choosing a plastic jar for your products, the choice can look deceptively easy. This one "looks good". But [...]
