We put home bakers to the test and held the Lichfield Food Festival Birthday Bake Off on Sunday 28 August.
Lichfield Food Festival in partnership with Cakeydora (Baking Academy) challenged home bakers to bake a birthday cake or birthday cupcakes.
On the day more than 200 festival goers voted for their favourite entries, before the main judging by Julie Crisp from Cakeydora.
Julie awarded four-year-old Sophie Antcliffe first place in the junior category (ages 4-15) for her salted caramel cupcakes and Katherine Archer came first in the adult category with her Finding Dory birthday cake.
Festival goers voted six (and three-quarter) year-old Theo Harrison-Lark’s Lego construction inspired cupcakes top in the junior category for the People’s Choice award and Katherine Archer’s Finding Dory cake in the adult category.
Thank you to everyone who entered this year. Here are photos taken at the event...
