Are you a cake lover? Well this event is for you! The Kampala Cake Fair, an annual event that brings together cake and food enthusiasts is returning for its third edition which will be held on December 1st 2019 at the Uganda Museum grounds in Kampala.
Set in a serene picnic environment and sponsored by Baileys, the event is an annual showcase of a variety of cakes, desserts, accompanying foods and style in a colorful, fun-filled family day. Over 70 bakers have been confirmed to participate in this year’s cake fair.
“Many people do not know that Baileys can be used as an ingredient for cake. During this year’s edition, bakers will be able to showcase the different cakes that have Baileys Irish cream ingeniously incorporated into their recipes for example the chocolate and Irish cream cakes.” said Roger Agamba, International Premium Spirits Brand Manager at Uganda Breweries.
The cake fair will feature a celebrity bake off between Comedian Pablo Kimuli, Andrew Kyamagero, Roger Mugishaand Faridah Nakazibwe.
There will also be a cake competition where bakers shall show case their master designs.
According to Asha Batenga, the organizer of the cake fair, judges from Austria, Jordan and Uganda will be present to ensure the ultimate prize goes to the best deserved baker. There will be a twist of the most popular cake where all people attending shall have a vote for the best looking cake.
Later in the evening, there will be performances from Kenneth Mugabi Band and Naava Grey.
The Kampala Cake fair is the brainchild of Cake Shop Uganda, a Facebook group with over 100,000 cake and dessert entrepreneurs and enthusiasts.
Tickets to the event are being sold for UGX20,000.
