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

More than 100 entries were tasted and scrutinised by a prestigious panel of 18 judges including master chocolatier Will Torrent and Alan Whatley of the Association of Pastry Chefs in order to find the eight category winners and two overall champions.

We found eight winners for each the professional and homebakers’ arms of the competition as well as two worthy champions, picked from the eight. The categories for entry were: Classic: Free-From; Made With Alcohol: and Themed.
