Win Dhs15,000 with UAE’s Best Homemade Cake Contest 2019

Ever brought a cake out of the oven, iced it up and thought “this should be in the Great British Bake Off”? Well, you can now do one better.

Country-wide baking competition, UAE’s Best Homemade Cake Contest 2019, wants amateur bakers to create a sculpted masterpiece, with the winner bringing home a whopping Dhs15,000 prize.

What’s more, second place will get a nice Dhs10,000 cash prize, with third place getting Dhs5,000. Now that’s icing on the, erm, cake.

Intimated by the competition? You shouldn’t be, as it's only allowing bakers who don’t already own a business to compete – fair is fair. If you’re 15 and older, you’re in.

Participants will be able to make anything from chocolate to lemon cakes, along with multi-layered to sculpted cakes. Take your pick and start piling on that frosting.
