The competition is open to all home bakers, for you to submit your ultimate chocolate cake and for it to be judged on Sunday 16th October at Chocolate Unwrapped. In return for all your hard work every entrant will receive free entry to the show (£10 on the door).
The winner will receive signed copies of the judges books, a trophy and the honour of having their recipe published on the Chocolate Week website.
The panel is esteemed professionals and experts – Bea Vo, renowned founder of Beas of Bloomsbury, Lucas Hollweg, author of Good Things To Eat and Sunday Times food writer, award-winning founder of Rococo, Chantal Coady, chocolatier Paul a Young, chocolate consultant Will Torrent, chocolate blogger, Dom Ramsey from http://www.chocablog.com and our very own Kate Johns, organiser of Chocolate Unwrapped will judge each entry based on texture, appearance and most importantly taste. Each category will be marked out of five for appearance, and texture and out of 10 points for taste, giving each entry a final score out of 20. Our judges will spend the afternoon tasting all the entries, before holding a public judging of their top five at the end of the day.
The competition is limited to just 30 entrants (our judges can only consume so much cake in one day!), so you must get your entry in asap to be in with a chance of taking part in the fun.
