The Goldilocks Cake Deco Expo 4

The 4th Cake Deco Expo of Goldilocks was held last February 24 Hall 4 at the SMX Convention Center. It was my first time to attend a Cake Deco Expo and I was really excited specially when I found  out about the over all theme of the event which is:

“Learning cake decorating is more fun when you get your hands dirty and you let your imagination fly!”

The event opened with a Ribbon cutting at 9am. It was headed by Goldilocks Marketing Director Ms. Pinky T. Yee together with the Avoset Representatives and head of finalist schools.

The entrance ticket for the event costs ₱50. It doubles as a passport which the attendees has to get stamped to make sure they enjoy all the activities at the expo like the Goldilocks DYC Booth, Avoset Whipped Cream Workshop, Cake Deco Hands-On Workshop, Fly for Hope Area, Goldilocks Gtizen Booth and the booths of other exhibitor present. The first 500 attendees to complete the seven stamps on their passports will get a lootbag.

At the back of this activity area is a Freedom Wall where you can express yourself by giving some cupcake balloons a splash of color. Many of the guests enjoyed this activity.

My next stop at the event is the Goldilocks Cake Display Area where they showcased different birthday cakes designed by Goldilocks. I love this Finding Nemo design!

Aside from the Whipped Cream Workshop, Avoset also let the attendees try to decorate their cupcake with a “Snowman” whipped Cream.

It looked very easy when the procedure was being demonstrated by the Avoset Representative but it was really hard because you really need to control the pressure of your hand and the movement of your wrist.

Besides Avoset’s Area is the Goldilocks DYC Booth. Looking at the families enjoying decorating their cakes made me wish I brought my daugther along.
