Hello, cake lovers—whether makers, eaters, or both! I’m thrilled to announce that The Bailiwick Academy will again be part of Cake Fiesta Manila 2023 at booth E04! It will be from November 16-19, 2023, from 10 AM to 6 PM at Function Rooms 3 and 4 at the SMX Convention Center.
What’s Cake Fiesta Manila 2023 all about?
Cake Fiesta Manila is not just any cake show. It’s the FIRST in the Philippines and the BIGGEST International Cake Show in Asia! With numerous global cake shows happening all over, the founders and organizers Valeri & Christina of Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes and Penk Ching of Pastry Bin wanted to establish one in the Philippines, which they started in 2019.
Cake Fiesta Manila’s mission is to uplift the standards of cake decorating in Asia by collaborating with top-tier suppliers and inviting the best instructors globally. The cake competitions are designed to spotlight and challenge the emerging talents in the cake world.

The Bailiwick Academy’s Role in Cake Fiesta Manila 2023
Cake Fiesta Manila 2022 was a fun one for me, the TBA team, and the Bailiwickers who attended. Check out these posts!
As you can see, not only did they get to participate in some of activities at Cake Fiesta Manila, they also got to meet some of their beloved chef instructors like Chef Bam Piencenaves, Chef Max Nadin, Chef Allan Mertola, Chef Chona Garcia Laureta, Chef Ely Salar, Sir Amir Valdez, Chef Marc Kevin Reyes, Sir Rodney Martinez, and Sir Joey Montanez!
Last year, we also organized a big meet and greet for Bailiwickers at our booth. That helped me meet a lot of Bailiwickers for the first time—something I really appreciated!
That’s not all—last year, I offered prizes to people who would visit our booth. For people who signed up, they got Php500 and Php250 vouchers for classes, while existing students got a 25% if they enrolled in a class in our booth. Everyone who dropped by also got the chance to win a special prize by playing a mini-game or by posting on social media.
We also had chefs doing demos in our booth back in 2019 and in 2022.
What do we have in store for people who visit booth E04 this year? Well, just wait and see! Sign up at The Bailiwick Academy to join our email list and get the latest updates.
