Introducing the Cake Decorating Heaven Awards 2018

In an aim to sort the best from the rest, we are launching our first ever Cake Decorating Heaven awards to showcase the best that the industry has to offer.

We have made the shortlists and now it’s over to you to decide who your winners are. Yes that’s right – these awards are entirely voted for by you! There are no industry experts or panel of judges – these awards are judged by the people who really matter – the people who buy the products! So, all that’s left to do is to read through the categories and shortlists, decide who your winner is and then cast your vote here.

You’ll notice that the last category is a little different. With this one we want you to vote for your local hero – your favourite independent cake decorator or decorating supply shop that’s provided you with particularly good service in 2017, going above and beyond. So with this one please let us know the name of the shop, website/Facebook details and most importantly why they should win. Your reason is really important as we’ll pick the winner for this one from your replies.

So without any further delay, here’s the shortlist for the first ever Cake Decorating Heaven Awards…

1. Most enjoyable teaching experience
2. Most innovative product of 2017
3. Best supermarket buy
4. Best for beginners
5. Best for customer service
