For Fairtrade Fortnight, 23rd February–8th March, Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine has teamed up with Squires Kitchen to help encourage the public to #makecakefair.
Fairtrade is about ensuring a fairer deal for farmers and workers in the developing world, which includes better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade. Squires Kitchen Sugarpaste is made using cane sugar grown by smallholder farmers in a number of countries and is a premium-quality sugarpaste perfectly suited to covering cakes of all shapes and sizes, from the smallest of mini cakes to multi-tiered wedding cakes.

To raise awareness, Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine is inviting creative cake makers to enter this competition for the chance to win a course voucher worth £250 to spend at Squires Kitchen International School. Miranda Gore Browne, much-loved finalist on the first series of The Great British Bake Off, will judge the winner.
