Pinays win bronze in London cake competition


MANILA, Philippines – A Filipina proudly announced on Tuesday that her company bagged the bronze award at a recently held cake decorating contest in London.
Valeri and Christina Quiencen of Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes won at the Cake International Show for their creation titled “A Summer Wedding at Westminster Abbey,” which features flowers and a stained-glass panel made from buttercream.
Valeri told ABS-CBNnews.com via Twitter that Queen of Hearts was the only Filipino exhibitor in the competition.
She added that their cake shop is the only company in London “specializing in buttercream art.”
Valeri, a London-based nurse, started baking cupcakes with Christina as a hobby, and decided to turn it into a business.
On Facebook, she admitted that it was hard for their buttercream creations to compete with fondant cakes and sugar flowers, which hold their shape well.
“It was a nice experience for us… There were loads of absolutely stunning cakes. It’s really hard to compete with fondant made cakes, but we are very happy we got bronze on our first competition. We will definitely aim for better next time,” Valeri said.
“So next time, we really have to make the most of buttercream,” she added.
