2010 Winners

David Bennett of the Sunshine Bakery in Chapel Allerton, Leeds, is the newly crowned Cupcake Champion of Great Britain 2010.  >> Read interview with David Bennett

Bennett set up the business only six months ago, having worked in Michelin-starred restaurants for 17 years, five of which were under Marco Pierre White. He switched from chef to baker and has quickly found success with his winning Banana & Mango recipe, tweaked from a Passionfruit & Mango recipe that sells in his shop for £1.50. He beat over 60 professional cupcake bakers to the title.

The competition was organised by British Baker as part of its build-up to 2010 National Cupcake Week. The week is sponsored by Renshaw and Chevler and supported by BFP Wholesale and Robert Dyas. There are seven winners in total, representing each day of the week, as follows:
