The Bake Fest, promoted as the ultimate virtual gathering for bakers, is set to make its worldwide debut on 21-22 May 2021. Providing the global baking community with the unique opportunity to connect, learn and grow, The Bake Fest will feature a fully interactive agenda of workshops and networking opportunities, together with expert panels starring the most influential bakers from all over the world.
The Bake Fest will provide a platform for bakers from around the world to connect with each other, as well as some of the best brands in the industry, through virtual networking lounges and live interactive sessions. From home bakers and those selling baked goods out of their home, to influencers, content creators, and brick and mortar bakeries, all are invited to form new pods of industry friends who they can continue to learn from long after the event is over.
The Bake Fest agenda features over 40 speakers with a combined Instagram following of over 5.3 million, including Jenny Keller of Jenny Cookies Bake Shop, Liz Marek of Sugar Geek Show, Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin of Pies Are Awesome, Dana Pollack of Dana’s Bakery, Courtney Rich of Cakes by Courtney and many more.
Additionally, The Bake Fest will provide bakers with the opportunity to learn a whole host of skills from some of the best experts in the industry, with sessions on pie art, new cake and cookie decorating techniques and sourdough baking. There will also be expert-led sessions in food photography, video skills, social media growth, creating a cookbook and much more.
Entrepreneurs and social influencers Stefani Pollack and Darren Fox created the event out of a deep love for the baking community.
“We haven’t seen any event that celebrates all bakers – home bakers, pastry chefs and bakery owners, recipe developers and baking influencers,” says Pollack. “We created The Bake Fest as place for us all to learn together. We built it with lots of networking opportunities so we have a space to get to know each other and exchange tips so we can grow together.”
