Ace of Cakes Duff Goldman
Just like Charlie in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, you can take a tour of the best sweets and baked goods that America has to offer at this year’s America’s Baking and Sweets Show. This delicious and inspiring event returns to the Schaumburg Convention Center (1551 N. Thoreau Dr., Schaumburg, IL 60173) from November 13-15, 2015 with the theme of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
With several inspiring themed zones, special guests, demonstrations and hands-on classes, America’s Baking and Sweets Show offers an array of things to explore, discover and buy for Thanksgiving, the holiday season, weddings, birthdays, dinner parties, intimate dinners or just to satisfy a sweet-tooth. With The Family Zone presented by T-Fal AirBake, GoodCook™ and Sweet Creations, children develop and share their passion for baking, while the American Talent Showcase competitions highlight this same ardor for both master chefs and passionate bakers. Since its inception in 2013, America’s Baking and Sweets Show has supported undiscovered American talent and continues to bring some of the best and most skilled bakers in the country under one roof.
