Best Of British Competition Theme

The Cake & Bake Show Official Competition is back for 2017! 

This year, you chose the theme!  We ran a social media poll to determine the theme and the winner was...

Best of British

We began a search to find the best British bakes from our fans and visitors. From historical events, landmarks, icons and musical eras to favourite childhood memories & holidays. There's so much British culture and iconography, and our entrants were as creative as ever! Cakes were displayed at the Show and judged by top industry experts based on creativity, skill, visual appeal and interpretation of the theme.

There were prizes for Best in Show, 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place in both our categories. 

View the list of prizes.
