Just wondering if anyone was going? I know there were lots of amazing cakes there 2 years ago when Sue and I went. Anyone entering a cake? Or just attending for all the cool free stuff? icon_biggrin.gif We can't wait!

Me and the bosslady will be there!! As with other shows, I'll be attaching some mardi gras beads to my wheely Wilton bag that's sure to be heavy!!

Taking any classes? The House of Clarendon delivers to my area, and I'm truly excited to take a class with Julie Bashore on Fondant techniques!! My bosslady is taking the carving class with Bronwen and she is super excited... we're staying right at the convention center!!

The Expo is at Atlantic City Convention Center Sept 21-23, 2008.

I would love to go and look at all the beautiful cakes, but its and Industry-Only event not for the novice baker. I live like 15 mins from there. icon_cry.gif

HA! If only we could skim the rules and say that an addiction here makes us qualified to go....

If it wasn't for my bosslady I couldn't go.. and I'm on the fence about opening my own shop as she backs down her business, so this will be a real eye-opener for what's out there!!

I can't wait!!

MrsLev557 I'd call and speak with someone at the cake show. I know a few people that are going that are just home decorators. Please call and find out.

We have our tags and such, with my DH's new job, arent' sure he can take any time off. But we are working on it and sure hope to go! We aren't taking any of the hands on classes, just want to sit through all the freebie seminars on the Biz.

Where is everyone staying? If you are going, please PM me, as I would love to exchange cell phone numbers and maybe we can get everyone together for a dinner or lunch or something!

Signing up now!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
I'm so excited to sit through the seminars. Hopefully next year, I'll sign up in time to take some of the hands on classes. DH is going to keep me company, you know what they say, two heads is better than one. He'll take his notes and then we'll compare.

I hope we can meet up with some of you! icon_wink.gif

There is another post about this in the business forum.

I am going, and I'm very excited! I went last year in Las Vegas and had a great time. I'm taking the Bronwen class on the 22nd.

When I signed up this year and last year, I really didn't need to document myself as an official bakery with any kind of information. I just signed up and put all my info down. I do work from an actual bakery with a storefront, so it wasn't an issue for me, but I bet you could just put down your home business name and that would be enough. They say it's only open to the trade, but like I said, I didn't have to prove I was a legitimate bakery.

Anyone else going, and where are you staying?

Too bad this is an "Industry Only" event icon_mad.gif . I would have loved to check this out, and I live soo close by. (I live like 10 mins away) icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I don't think it is industry only - but I would check. Yes, Sue and I are taking the Bronwen class! We can hardly wait! We went 2 years ago and and had so much fun with Ron-Ben Isreal especially. He is so funny and animated, what a great guy to learn from! We talked a long time with Keegan from the food network. He was so nice and gracious! We really want our photo with Bronwen for our wall of fame! It will be complete!

See you all there!

I just got an email from he organizers for the Expo in Atlantic City, NJ. They said that I could register by email for the event even though my home cake decorating business does not have to be licensed in NJ. Im pretty exited. I cant wait to go....... Thank goodness I live 10 minutes out of the city.

If you check out the events forem, we are trying to get a list of people going and see if we can meet somewhere! also, if you tied a blue or rose colored ribbon around your purse, bag, whatever, we know you are from CC and would love to say hi!!!

We are also going to a lot of the exhibit seminars...and yes, a home bakery is considered a business, so you can go!! I bet even home bakers/hobbiest can go, I don't think they check for a business card or anything.
