Do you love baking? Are you a professional baker or perhaps just an experimental home baker like me?
Well, now you can show off your skills at this year’s Cake and Bake Show in Edinburgh (30 Oct - 1 Nov), by entering The 'Children’s Stories' Cake Competition.
Cakes, all shapes and sizes are welcomed from cupcakes to multi-tiered monsters! As long as they fit into the theme of Children’s Stories, then anything is fair game.
With all the children’s stories out there, your imagination can run wild. From Harry Potter to The Tiger Who Came to Tea, or a Hungry Caterpillar to the Wombles (showing my age there!).

Speaking of age, there are different classes to enter your cake under depending on your level of expertise (and age). The categories are Professional, Semi-Professional, Amateur and three junior sections. You can also enter your cake for display and taste, or simply just display. Take a look at the website for all the terms and conditions.

Entry forms for the Edinburgh competition must be submitted by the 18th August and will be shortlisted on 1st September. So get your thinking caps on and start practicing.
The Scottish Baking Awards will be judging the cakes at the very first Scottish Cake and Bake Show (on 30th October) and will be assessing them on creativity, visual appeal, skill and the way you interpret the theme of children’s stories.
If you are thinking of entering there is a list of important rules on the website so do make sure you pop over and take a look.
Good luck to all who enter!
