In a bid to discover the most inventive bakers amongst you, we set a challenge to see who could come up with the most creative cupcake recipe, for the chance to bag a whopping £750 worth of vouchers, as well as £250 of vouchers for one lucky runner up.
From ice cool baked Alaska cupcakes to belly-warming cinnamon and carrot cupcakes, the recipes showed off both natural creativity and second-to-none skill in the kitchen, and we soon knew that we’d be hard pressed to find a winner.
Luckily, this tough decision didn’t have to fall on our shoulders, as we drafted in the help of Sarah Wilson-Gibbons, Director of Hey Little Cupcake! ,to judge the competition.
Well, the results are in, and we’re proud to announce that the winner of our Betta Bake Off 2014 is…
Chi Chi, with her mouth-wateringly exotic Tropical Cupcakes.
The runner up is Hannah, with her picture-perfect Pumpkin Cupcakes.
These entrants really used their imagination when it came to their ingredients and the finished results really wowed our judge. Well done, guys!
From all of us at Betta Living, a big ‘thank you’ to all those that took part – we hope you’ll continue to utilise your prowess in the kitchen for the remainder of National Cupcake Week.
