Horsham’s Sugared Pumpkin Cake Company has won first prize in the South East at the Cake Professional Awards.
Sugared Pumpkin’s owner, Caroline Middleton picked up the prestigious award for the outstanding design of her three tiered celebration cake.
Caroline, who beat off stiff competition from across the region to reach the final, said: “I was absolutely delighted to have won, it really means a lot to have your work recognised by leading professionals in your industry.
“The judges loved my design, it was created for a mermaid themed party and incorporates elements from the sea, sand and a sunset. Inside is my best selling signature chocolate mud cake with Nutella buttercream.”
Sugared Pumpkin Cake Company, established in 2016, specialises in creating flawless, beautiful cakes for all occasions and was founded on the principles of using the highest quality ingredients to make cakes that taste as good as they look.
The Cake Professionals awards were set up by Phil and Christine Jensen from Peboryon (featured on Extreme Cake Makers TV show on Channel 4) to celebrate real cakes made for real orders by cake businesses. There are already opportunities to showcase skills at various cake exhibitions throughout the year, but nothing that looked to reward the everyday work created every week for clients.
