Get Your BAFTA Bake On

28 April 2013
BAFTA Bake Off

In celebration of Television Special Award recipient Delia Smith, we asked the public to show off their baking talent BAFTA style.

Delia Smith has won a place in the hearts of the British public for her warm presenting style and accessible approach to teaching cookery. On 30 April, Delia will be presented with a BAFTA mask , at a special tribute event in honour of her hugely successful TV career. To celebrate, we asked Delia fans to show off their own cookery skills in our BAFTA bakery competition.

Entrants were asked to concoct an edible, BAFTA themed creation and to share a photo with us using #BAFTABakeOff. We were astounded by the excellent entries and chose four exceptional runners-up for the judges Anton Manganaro and Edd Kimber to pick their winner from.
