You had better get baking because there is still time to enter your cupcake masterpiece in the National Cupcake Championships 2014.

Entering could not be easier - we just need a recipe, photo and simple business outline. Click here for the entry details.

Your creations will be judged by some of the best celebrity cake makers in the country. Last year’s winners were presented with their trophies by baking legend and The Great British Bake Off host Mary Berry.

Past winners have found their businesses to benefit from increased awareness and promotion surrounding the awards. Read testimony from them and the judges and get some tips on a winning recipe from our video interview with 2013 overall Home Baker champion Shalini Sriskandarasa.

The awards aim to find the best cupcakes around, with two overall champions - one a home baker and one a professional. There are four categories to enter:

Made with Alcohol

The finalists will be chosen by a panel of baking experts during the recipe round – with the winners being announced, following a live judging session, at this autumn’s Cake International, on 8 November 2014.

The event is sponsored by Barry Callebaut and Cater For You and partnered by charity Wellbeing for Women.
