A Strabane baker is in the running to become a Star Baker in the Great British Bake off.

Giusell Di Nucci’s cake of a pug is currently in 14th position in a competition on the Great British Bake Off’s official website.

But Giusell needs your help to get into the top ten.

The local baker revealed: ”A lady asked for a pug design on top of a cake for her children, I decided to take it to the next level. I tried to recreate their family dog into a cake, they were extremely happy with the results as was I. Hopefully you like it.”

The cake is described as “hard to make” needing four hours preparation.

Reaction online has been amazing.

One admirer said: “Fantastic cake amazing talent” while another said: “class cake never seen anything so real looking.”
