You now have until Friday, 29 August 2014 to perfect your entries and send them over to us.

Entering could not be easier and you will have your creations assessed by some of the best celebrity cake judges in the country. Last year’s winners were presented their trophies by baking legend and The Great British Bake Off host Mary Berry.

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:

  • Classic
  • Themed:
  •  Made with Alcohol
  • Free-from

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 9 November 2014.

The event is sponsored by Barry Callebaut and Cater For You.
