I am so excited to see there is a cake show with top notch instructors coming to the northwest! For all of you professionals this is in October...after the wedding season!
But I am a little torn. The Washington State Sugar Artists (WASSA) have been around since 2003 and hosting a cake show in Washington since 2005. As a small business owner I want to support other NW local businesses. As a nonprofit run strictly by volunteers WASSA has struggled these last few years to keep attendees or attract new attendees from outside the NW..
It will be interesting to see how the Confettifest Show does in comparison to WASSA. Confettifest definitely has the working model of using big name instructors for classes and having a vendor room with a lot of vendors. I hope it will be the spark that WASSA needs to move it from a small show to a big show.
So with all that, I hope to see everyone at the Confettifest show in October AND at the WASSA show next spring.
