The Baking Academy

At Canada’s Baking and Sweets Show 2017, The Renshaw Americas Baking Academy will inspire you, entertain you, but above all to help you to become better at what you want to be. Whether it is baking, icing, decorating, or just dabbling in fondant, we have some of the best teachers to demonstrate and help you learn.   When we debuted in 2011, we had over 2,000 baking enthusiasts attending our live demos. The cake design artists then had included the very famous Bonnie Gordon and the well-renowned Michelle Bommarito. But this was just the beginning. In 2012, we were flooded with requests for hands-on classes. So we brought in some of North America’s biggest names: Margaret Braun, Jorg Amsler, Julie Bashore, Rosalind Chan, and both Bonnie Gordon and Michelle Bommarito returned to grace the show.  In 2013, our classes were once again a huge success as people came from all over the world to partake in them.  2014 and 2015 was a resounding success.   Whether you are a serial baking enthusiast or industry professional, 2017 brings about an exciting lineup of renowned local teachers and from abroad. 

With the support of Gusta Cooking Studio, we brought together cake artists, pastry chefs and chocalatiers to show global trends in the baking and sweets world.  Keep your skills up to date with experts who will teach you to create your own interactive cakes; use innovative materials such as bean paste in making realistic flowers and handle delicate Korean buttercream that is on Instagram everywhere.  For those of you who want to hone your decorating skills, join our class in phenomenal techniques such as 2D embroidery, geometric textures, magical gingerbread house and gorgeous gum paste freesia and peony!  Adorable safari animal toppers and panda macarons will "cutesify" your sweet repertoire, while airbrushed chocolate bon bons, Japanese roll cakes and chocolate truffles with exotic ingredients will stimulate your palates!  Learn how to design a stunning sweet table, as well as how to turn yourself into a business success in our demo seminars.
