THE world-famous Rolkem World Cake will be on display this weekend at the South African Cake Decorators Guild (SACDG) PE Dolphin Coast Branch’s 2017 Cake Show.

The magnificent cake was designed and created by cake artist, Jennifer Ann Nel, with the aim of achieving a Guinness World Record for the Cake Most Travelled category and raising funds for Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer.

The sponsor, Rolkem, will be donating money for the total number of kilometres that the cake has travelled, both nationally and internationally.

The Rolkem World Cake is making its way to Port Elizabeth from Birmingham where the International Cake Show took place recently.

Though the outcome of the world record attempt is not yet available, having the cake at the 2017 Cake Show has added about 2 200km to the total number of kilometres travelled.

The Cake Show theme, Cakes Around the World, was inspired by this world cake.

Apart from the Rolkem World Cake, this weekend’s exhibition will also feature cakes created by cake artists from around the country.

The programme for Saturday, September 30, will include demonstrations of sugar art techniques – a new technique, as well as techniques developed by the SACDG that have never been seen anywhere in the world.

There will also be celebrity appearances and competitions that will take place during the course of the weekend.

A number of quality lucky draw prizes will be up for grabs at the event.

The event promises to bring loads of fun and laughter to the whole family with cupcake and biscuit decorating, a colouring in competition and a jumping castle for the kids to work off the sugar rush.

The exhibition will open on Friday and Saturday from 9am to 5pm and on Sunday from 9am to 1pm at the Hoogland Dutch Reformed Church.

Entry is R20 per adult and R10 for children under the age of 12.

Bookings can be made with Cathy Crouse on 083 235 6339.
