Cake International: The Cake Decorating & Baking Show 2015 Part 1

I have always wanted to go to the Cake Show but every year I always miss it. So this year I was close to missing it again but glad I made it in the end.

The Cake show is one of those shows if you are a baker or cake decorator it feels like you are in heaven. There are workshops, demonstrations, competitions, meet and greet cake authors, everything you need  as a baker all in one venue. 

I took some pictures of the lovely cakes on display.

Friday evening I was not in the mood to cook since I had a long week, I also did not want to go to the same restaurant. I wanted a different environment and then the Hubz said we should go to "RARE" since his friend recommended it to him.
Initially I was not keen especially as they did not have a website, but I gave in at the end. En-route to Greenwich.

RARE is a little gem steakhouse in Greenwich. As we pulled up the restaurant stood out as it was all black and had tinted glass but dimmed lights. I was already feeling funny as I thought it was small and what would they have but I was ready for anew adventure right.
Little did I know our taste buds were going to be blown away and the night was going to be magical. (Really wish I took my camera now)

As we entered we were welcomed by the waiter, who showed us our table but I could not help but notice the modern chic, gothic, glamorous feel to the restaurant. Immediately I knew I was in the right place.

What we had?

Drinks was Raspberry Daiquiri and chilled lager for the Hubz
