This year's National Cupcake Championships are set to be the biggest and best yet. We have mixed up the categories and added some new ones so there is something for everyone.
You can choose from: Classic Cupcake; Made with Alcohol; Free-from; Made with Chocolate; Seasonal Cupcake; and Cupcake for Children - or enter all six if you have time! Here are the category guidlines:
Classic - Your cupcake must be a traditional flavour, such as vanilla or red velvet. Decorate it however you like, but don't let it fall into the other categories. It cannot be chocolate as we have a dedicated chocolate category this year.
Made with Chocolate - the more chocolatey the better.
Free-from - These cupcakes must be free from any one or more allergens, such as gluten, dairy or nuts.
Made with alcohol - Self-explanatory and one of the most exciting categories - include alcohol! Lots of wriggle room with this one.
Seasonal - a new category for 2015, entries can be inspired by any occasion from Halloween to the World Cup.
Children's Cupcake - also new for this year, this category invites cucpakes tailored to delight children.
Last year saw some fantastic and innovative entries with a chocolate and amaretto masterpiece trouncing competition. So think outside the realms of the norm and see how creative you can be to turn the judges' heads.
We require a recipe, good-quality images and a 200-word description of your business and how the entered cupcake could benefit, or is already benefiting your company, and how it would be marketed. You must have a registered UK business to enter.
