A NORTH Yorkshire cake company is celebrating after winning a “scrumptious” award.

Lindy Lou Creations, in Scarborough, has been highly-commended in the prestigious Cake Professionals Awards 2020.

Entering the large celebration cake category, owner Linda Jameson gained the highly-recommended after beating off strong competition in the popular category.

“It was a wonderful set of awards to enter with some hugely talented cake creators taking part,” said Linda.

“It was nerve-wracking waiting for the results, especially as it was the first event for the Cake Professionals Awards.”

Sponsored by Tate and Lyle, the cake competition was held in Oxfordshire last month where Linda picked up her award.

Linda opened her shop and workshop in 2018, following a career with the Betty’s Tearooms, where she was team leader for more than 10 years.

During her time with Betty’s Tearoom, her cakes were served to members of the Royal family.

“I have a passion for making cakes and these can be for birthdays, weddings and other life celebrations,” said Linda.

“I certainly hope to enter the awards again next year.”
