After a year of virtual baking tutorials and following the latest Tik Tok trends it's time to finally put those skills to the test as we announce the return of our Official Show Cake Competition. Whether you are a professional or a self-taught master baker, it's time to get your creation seen by thousands of visitors at this year's Show.
This year's competition has two main themes 'Over the rainbow' and 'Anything goes'.
The 'Over the rainbow' theme is paying homage to all the NHS staff who have kept the country going through a difficult year. It also marks the start of new beginnings with its symbolic meaning of positivity and hope. Therefore this opens the door to bold, striking, vivid cakes that make a statement.
The 'Anything Goes', theme is a chance for bakers to demonstate all the new skills they have learnt and old skills they have perfected in the last year. It's an opportunity for individuals to have fun reinventing and incorporating all kinds of new shapes, colours, patterns, and materials to really show who they are as a baker.
There is also a cupcake competition and a kids competition for aged 14 and under.
One of the Cake & Bake Celebrity Experts will be judging this year's competition. There will be prizes for Best in Show (Main Competition only) and 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place in all competition categories.
