The Cake & Bake Show in Association with Argos is the UK’s only dedicated baking show and arrives at ExCeL London on 7-9 October and EventCity Manchester on 10-13 November. Online entries are flooding in for one of the key highlights, the prestigious Official Show Cake and Bake Competition, where keen bakers from around the UK compete for a much-coveted winning rosette awarded for Best in Show, then Gold, Silver and Bronze within each category, along with a host of fabulous baking related prizes from Bosch and Kenwood, supplied by Argos. 

The theme this year for the Main Competition and Cupcake Competition is Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales and with the deadline for entry on 19 September, amateur and professional bakers alike are invited to submit details of their creations, which can be inspired by anything from Harry Potter to Game of Thrones, encompassing historical tales, folklore fantasy, elves, fairies, giants witches and magic. 

There are four categories to enter this year: 

1. Main Competition, supported by Food Network (a show-stopping decorative exhibit)
2. Cupcake Competition (decorative and tasting)
3. Birthday Cake Competition, supported by Kids Kitchen (decorative and tasting)
4. Bread Competition (decorative) 

Judging the competitions will be top patissier and Cake & Bake Show Ambassador, Eric Lanlard, along with Great British Bake Off’s Paul Jagger, cupcake queen Charlotte White, cake designer Rosie Cake Diva, plus Leanne Cooper, publisher of Cake Decoration and Sugarcraft Magazine. 

Eric Lanlard, Master Patissier says: 

‘I'm looking forward to seeing what the nation of great British cake makers and bakers are going to produce this year! Each year the entries get better and better and this, alongside the Great British Bake Off inspiring us all again, means it’s likely to be the best year ever.’ 

Entries are welcomed from Amateur and Professional bakers aged over 18. For more information, please see

Good Luck!
