The entries are now closed and judging is under way. Some lucky bakers could be within a chance of being crowned this year’s British Baker’s Cupcake Champion.

Entrants picked as finalists will be invited to a day at the AB Mauri Centre of Excellence in Corby, Northamptonshire, where their cupcake will be judged by industry experts on 14 September 2016.

The National Cupcake Champion and winners will take centre stage during National Cupcake Week, from 19-25 September 2016, when bakers around the country will get the chance to boost their sales of cupcakes via British Baker’s exclusive initiative.

Championship finalists will be announced in mid-late August, so keep your eyes peeled on the website:
