They’re here! These are the first-ever winners of British Baker’s Christmas Stars.

Our expert judges spent a whole day in the height of summer sampling all the festive treats that will adorn tables across the land this Christmas.

The standard was extremely high, and you can get a feel for the day and a complete breakdown of all the winners in our video below.

The German discounter Aldi showed off its Christmas credentials by sweeping the board and scooping five out of the six categories.

High standard

Martyn Leek, editor of British Baker, said: “The standard of entry was overwhelmingly high, and the judges spent a lot of time deliberating and deciding on who should take home each award. I am extremely proud to announce the winners of our Christmas Stars this year, and I would like to congratulate everyone who entered. This contest was a fantastic way of giving bakers and companies a prestigious seal of approval from British Baker to plug their products, and I look forward to handing out more next year.”
