ABOUT CAKEMANIA SHOW
One of the things that sets Nigerians apart from the rest of the civilized world is our ability to thoroughly enjoy ourselves without fear of censure. We are known for throwing the most raving parties and pivotal to the parties and events throughout Nigeria is cake. The birthday parties, weddings, child dedications, graduation parties cannot be deemed complete in the Nigerian context without a cake as their centerpiece. This is a key reason why the cake industry in Nigeria is one of the fastest growing industries ever, with the Southern region of Nigeria alone being home to over 700 bakers.
Quite a number of cake events and festivals dedicated to the exposure and showing off of the cake industry do abound, but Cakemania comes with a distinctiveness as it is a platform created by a team of passionate and ingenious young bakers whose sole concern is to inspire, empower and promote young and budding bakers and the entire baking industry. Cakemania encourages creativity and determination as well as the development and promotion of talents in the cake industry with pastry based startups and bakers as the main focus. As it returns in its second edition christened Cakemania 2019, it promises a ramped up experience that will create a new status quo.
Cakemania 2019 will present a grand exhibition of art and culture displayed in the beautiful creations of over 30 seasoned bakers. It will even surpass last year’s experience that showcased a cake depicting the titular comic book character, Black Panther by a young baker alongside several other fascinating and jaw dropping cakes designs. Also, Cakemania 2019 will in addition to others things bring back the tension filled live cake decoration competition known as The Sugar Wars which will pit 20 budding bakers against themselves in a live contest during the event.
The top three aesthetically outstanding cake decorations will be adjudged the Victors in the War, with the First Prize Winner taking ownership of ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND NAIRA and A MIXER; Second Prize, FIFTY THOUSAND NAIRA and A MIXER and Third Prize, TWENTY THOUSAND NAIRA and A MIXER. There will as well be consolation prizes and other giveaways. Also, awards and recognitions will be accorded several distinguished young bakers drawn from different parts of Nigeria as a way to applaud and encourage their craft.
Other attractions on the day will include a buffet of over 4000 pieces of exquisite cake samples for tasting and seasoned drink and food vendors that will be on standby as we are concerned with providing a full experience for the body and soul. Also a luxurious cake carpet will be set up to enable the capturing and documentation of the sophistication of the day in pictures and the event will be spiced up with fun, comedy and music. Brands and private individuals are invited to partner with the Cakemania platform as not only does the platform do the baking/pastry ecosystem a great deal of service, it also avails the partners a veritable promotion opportunity.
