Mary Berry best watch out as a mother and daughter from Ammanford are hot on her heels when it comes to sweet skills.

Mother-of-two Kay Augustus and her daughter Cerys, from Myddynfych, both walked away with a silver award after impressing judges at the Cake International competition in Birmingham earlier this month.

Cake International is the UK’s leading cake decorating, sugarcraft and baking show where sweet enthusiasts from across the globe exhibit their creative masterpiece.

11-year-old Cerys was awarded bronze last year, but this year she picked up silver in the Junior Birthday Cake, 10-12 years section with her Paddington Bear inspired birthday cake.

The Ysgol Bro Dinefwr pupil said: “I started making my design the week before the competition and I would like to get gold next year.

“On the way to Birmingham my mum’s cake fell on top of mine, but we managed to save both our cakes in time for the competition.”

They dropped off their cakes to be judged and went back to next day to find out their results and they both delighted.

Augustus Gloop Cakes owner Kay, who was previously applied for The Great British Bake Off said: “I love Disney and I choose Up because I really like the film and I know I could be really creative with a design.

“It is such a privilege to be critiqued by industry professionals.

“The judges also gave us advise on how we can improve our designs.”

Kay scooped silver in the wedding cake three or more tiers category with a Disney-themed design.

“My creativity began when I started making my children’s birthday cakes,” she said.

“Over the years the requests are getting more adventurous and with this my confidence has grown.

“I pride myself in making wedding cakes which are sometimes pretty and other times pretty crazy, I have never made the same cake twice and believe that your wedding cake should represent your personality and should be something your guests talk about for years to come.”
