Making the grand announcement, was Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Mr. Eric Evelyn, who noted that there were fewer competitors this year and hence fewer cakes were on show, for the judges to view and sample.
However, he extended heartfelt congratulations to those persons who participated.
