The City Cupcake Challenge will see City workers submit their baking masterpieces for rating by Great British Bake Off Winner Frances Quinn, ITV chef Peter Sidwell and Thom Joseph, Creative Chef at Cocomaya.

During the bake-off, budding City bakers can pit their best creations against each other, all vying to be crowned winner in three categories: best tasting cupcake; best looking cupcake and the Lord Mayor’s chosen favourite.

The summer spectacle will see the historic Guildhall transformed into a baking fete with stalls hosted by London’s finest bakeries including Cocomaya, Sweet Couture and many more. There will also be hourly raffle prizes for lucky winners, and at the end of the day, there’ll be a tea party hosted by the Lord Mayor. Talk about having your cake and eating it…

When: Friday, July 11 from 10.30am – 5pm

Where: Guildhall, Gresham St, London, EC2V 7HH
