Stylist’s big bake-off: The entries

We've launched our first Big Bake-Off, which gives you the chance to show off your most photogenic baking efforts, and win a fabulous holiday to Japan, the world's new baking hotspot. Flying courtesy of Virgin Atlantic, the winner will enjoy four nights at luxury hotel The Peninsula Tokyo (to make the most out of your trip to Japan, visit the Japan National Tourism Organisation website at seejapan.co.uk).

Inspired to get your bake on? Send a snap of your best cake creation to bakeoff@stylist.co.uk, along with your name and telephone number. Alternatively, tweet your picture to @StylistMagazine, with the hashtag #bigbakeoff' by Friday 18th November at 5pm. For full terms and conditions, click here.
