Last Saturday (8 November) saw the top cupcakes in the UK go through to the final round of judging at Cake International in Birmingham.

Organised by British Baker, the competition saw more than 100 finalists bring their cupcakes to the NEC for the final judging round. The prestigious panel, which determined the winners, included master chocolatier Will Torrent and industry veteran Jane Hatton.
