Big Bake-Off: the results

In early November we launched our first Big Bake-Off, which invited Stylist readers to send in their very best baking efforts for the chance to win a trip to Japan, flying with Virgin Atlantic and staying at the luxurious Peninsula Tokyo.

We were overwhelmed with thousands of amazing entries from budding bakers and, after carefully considered each and every entry (hungry work, we can assure you), the Stylist team selected their top 20 entries. These amazing cakes then battled it out in a public vote to be crowned the winner of the Big Bake-Off and win the amazing trip to Japan.

The votes have now been carefully counted, and we're thrilled to announce that the winner is Lucy Bruns, whose incredible Fish 'n' Chip Cupcakes not only sounded delicious, but were obviously created with great amounts of love and attention. Congratulations, Lucy! You can view all of the final 20 entries, in order of the results, in the gallery below. You can also look back through all the entries here.

Finally, we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part - we were more than impressed with all your baking skills!
