We're packing our bags (and woollies) today ready to head off to The Cake & Bake Show in Manchester. Sugar and spice and all things nice await us. If you're going to be there, too, come and see us on stand 74 or tweet us at @sarahbonviveur and @hoflang. We'll have magazines to sell and goodies from Billington's to give away.

We're launching our 'Create a winning cake' competition at the show – we want your ideas for decorating a show-stopping celebration cake to mark the 20th birthday of Sainsbury's magazine.

There are wonderful prizes up for grabs from a luxury break in Dorset to a KitchenAid mixer and signed copies of Eric Lanlard's gorgeous chocolate book. The magazine team and master baker Eric Lanlard will judge the designs of six finalists at The Cake & Bake Show in London in September (details can also be found on page 123 of our May issue).

Are you planning to go to The Cake and Bake Show? Tell us in the comments box below. See you in Manchester!
