AN AWARD winning firm's latest achievement really is the icing on the cake.

Bury-based Lilli Oliver Cakes has been selected from hundreds of others to showcase their skills at a prestigious event featuring some of the UK’s top bakers.

The Cake & Bake Show, which is a highlight in the bakery calendar, takes place from November 9 to 12 at Event City near the Trafford centre.

The show's special guest is 2016 Great British Bake off winner Candice Brown, who will be doing live cooking demonstration’s during the event.

Vedia Glover, of Lilli Oliver Cakes, was hand selected by the organisers as one of only six talented cake designers from around the region to show her cakes on one of the shows sought-after display tables.

Vedia said: “I am absolutely over the moon to be given this amazing opportunity to show my work to a wider audience and I am proud and privileged to be representing Bury at the event.”

A spokesman for the show’s organisers said: "We are supporting some of the country’s best cake designers and experts at the Cake & Bake Show this year by encouraging them to showcase their craft and inspire a passionate foodie audience. Prepare to be wowed as these cakes are truly works of art!"

Lilli Oliver Cake Boutique is one of the region’s leading suppliers of highly creative cakes.

The company found fame as the first place in the country to follow the milkshake craze Freakshakes, and has featured in Cosmopolitan magazine as one of the top places to sample the extravagant drink.

Children’s parties and Baby showers are held at the weekend and December will see the launch of the Lilli Oliver Cake Academy.
