Zhou Bin and Peng Fudong from China have won the IBA-UIBC-Cup of Bakers with a stunning array of baked goods.

The pair bested teams from 11 other countries – Norway, Germany, France, Japan, Peru, the Netherlands, Korea, Russia, Spain, Turkey and the US – to take the gold medal in the competition at this year’s IBA exhibition in Munich this week.
