Mrs B's Cakes - 2015 winner
"I am absolutely thrilled beyond words to win this. It is something I have been working towards for the last four years and it is going to mean so much to my business. It means that my cakes are good and it is so good to have that endorsement. This will help future customers trust in me especially when I am doing wedding cakes and wedding cupcakes."
Mary Eastman of Mary's Fairies - 2015 finalist
"Since tweeting about being a finalist I've had a stream of enquiries. I'd bake maybe two or three for this particular coffee shop, but not for the private orders that I'm now getting enquiries for. They are coming from new people, so I'm really pleased."
