Terry Tang, Celebration Cake Maker of the Year Award at the Baking Industry Awards (BIA) 2011, talked to British Baker about his winning mythical-themed carnival creation.

The two-tier cake featured a series of figurines made out of chocolate, including Pegasus-style unicorns, festival girls and Brazilian musicians.

Tang picked up the Best in Show title at this year’s Cake International exhibition at London’s ExCel for an oriental themed cake.

His daughter Leanne has also claimed the Celebration Cake Maker of the Year Award back in 2008 for her Las Vegas-themed cake, and is a finalist for the same category at this year’s 25th anniversary BIA.

Sarah Summers, commercial director at Renshaw, sponsor of the Celebration Cake Maker of the Year Award 2011, said: "The judges chose Terry as the 2011 winner as his cake was flawless; it showed great uniformity and showcased a wide variety of skills to complete the overall detail in the design."
