National Cupcake week.

3 Aug

Well today is the Final day of  judging for the national cupcake week competition and will be taking place in London, where the 7 finalists will be picked.

National Cupcake Week is organised by British Baker magazine to celebrate the nation’s fanaticism with this glorious sweet bakery product. The aim of the week,to be held from September 13-19 2010, is to celebrate the many wonderful recipes and exotic flavours available from bakeries, shops, supermarkets and cafes across the UK and to drive customers into their local bakeries and cafes to buy and sample them.
It gives these retail outlets and cafes the opportunity to market themselves and flag up these fashionable food items.

Very very exciting, I can’t wait to see who wins this year.

Last year the winner was a Black Forest Cupcake baked by Kevin Sibley of Mama’s Cupcakes in Herts for more information and recipes please visit


Update 13th August.

The result is in!

and this years winner, cupcake champion of Britain 2010 is……….

drum roll please…………..

David Bennett of the Sunshine Bakery in Chapel Allerton, Leeds.

Bennett set up the business only six months ago, having worked in Michelin-starred restaurants for 17 years, five of which were under Marco Pierre White. He switched from chef to baker and has quickly found success with his winning Banana & Mango recipe, tweaked from a Passionfruit & Mango recipe that sells in his shop for £1.50. He beat over 60 professional cupcake bakers to the title.
