To celebrate the 40th anniversary of The British Sugarcraft Guild, we’re thrilled to announce an exciting national competition commencing with our first live exhibition in 2021 and continuing through to the BSG shows planned for 2022.

All members are invited to enter our special anniversary Ruby Sugarcraft competition, heats for which will be held at each of the BSG’s regional Cake and Sugarcraft Shows.

Exhibits at each regional show will be marked by an expert team of BSG judges using our industry respected marking criteria developed over the last 40 years. Gold, Silver, Bronze, Highly Commended and Commended awards will be presented on the day along with feedback comments from the judges.

All the Gold awards from each regional show will go straight through to the grand finale to be presented at the BSG’s Annual Members’ Meeting in October. There will be special runner-up prizes for each of the highest scoring exhibits from each regional show and the exhibit with the highest percentage score across all shows will be crowned the ‘Ultimate Winner’.
