The Cake & Bake Show Official Competition is back for 2019! 

Whether you're a whizz at mastering up an anti-gravity cake or can craft a cake cleverly disguised as food, we were on the hunt for the best cake artists in our Illusion Cakes Competition. Professional and amateur bakers were asked to create an Illusion Cake that was on display throughout the 3 days of the show. There were three categories: Main Competition, Cupcake Competition and Kids Competition (open to children 15 and under), and they were all judged by imdustry experts Rosie Dummer (Rosie Cake Diva), Molly Robbins and Britt Box (She Who Bakes)

 

Prizes 

The 1st place winners each section of this year's Illusion Cake Competition received a fabulous stand mixer courtesy of KitchenAid and the Best in Show winner also received an exciting Christmas Chocolate Workshop with Le Cordon Bleu. Other prizes included Molly Robbins' Creature Creators, Salter Scales and Lindt Hampers.
