A Manx cake artist has wowed judges again with another award-winning entry at an international chef competition.

Aimee Ford of Butterfingers Cakes was presented with a gold award for her four-tiered wedding cake creation, which she entered in the International Salon Culinaire show - the world’s largest professional chef competition.

Despite ’fierce’ competition at the Birmingham show, her design was also announced as ’Best in Class’ within the wedding cake category.

Aimee, from Peel, said: ’A professional cake designer’s dream is to secure a Best in Class and this, being only my second professional competition, it really is an amazing sense of achievement to be able to say I have gained an International Best In Class already.

’It is so much fun being able to create edible works of art, and I enjoy the challenge of competing against quite literally the best in the world.

’To know I am ranked alongside those who I have looked up to for so long is extremely overwhelming and exciting!

’The island exceeds in the food industry in so many ways, and it is amazing to know I am helping lead the way within the cake world also.’

Her cake, she said, was ’inspired by the current geometic trends’ with the different tiers being in ’perfectly imperfect juxtaposition’. The bottom tier displayed hexagon shapes and delicate-looking wafer paper petals were used as decoration.

Aimee, who began her cake-making business in 2012, said: ’Many brides look for a predominantly white cake as is traditional, however the splash of colour transforms the cake into a work of art. The head judge commented on the use of ingenious new techniques and the real "wow factor" of the cake.’
