National Cupcake Week is 19th-25th September, 2016 but they already have their National Cupcake Champions.

On Wednesday 14th September at AB Mauri Centre of Excellence, 10 experts spent the day trying and tasting delicious little cakes of joy from 5 different categories. The cupcakes were individually rated by our experts to give a category winner. Each category winner was then judged to give your our cupcake champion!


This event is brought to you by British Baker, the only industry title to cover the entire baking industry, including craft, ingredients, equipment, food-to-go, snacks, coffee shops, as well as plant bakery and supermarkets.

In addition to National Cupcake Week itself, they have an annual competition called the National Cupcake Championships, which serves to celebrate and reward the talent in the cupcake industry. In 2016, the competition’s eight year.
