Tearooms across the region went cake to cake in the Great North Lincolnshire Cake-off 2015 battling it out to prove they provided the best bakes - and now it’s time to search for the 2016 winner.

Last year’s Teapot Trail saw 12 tearooms - including Hatty’s in Market Place, Epworth - battle it out to be crowned the winner.

People who visited the tearooms would try their delicious cakes and choose their favourite one from each establishment.

After many months of eating scrumptious cakes, Coffee at 43 in Ashby was chosen as the winner with its white chocolate and orange cheesecake.

The Teapot Trail first launched in North Lincolnshire in 2014, which has seen many tearooms taking part.

The Tea Pot Trail encourages people to try as many tea rooms as possible.

The winner of the Great North Lincolnshire Cake-off 2014 was The Ropery Coffee Shop in Barton with a yummy carrot cake.

The organisers are now looking for tearooms in North Lincolnshire to take part in the 2016 Teapot Trail.

Whether you’re a quirky cosmopolitan coffee shop or vintage inspired tearoom, they want to hear from you.

Do you think your cake could be a winner?

Councillor Liz Redfern, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “Congratulations to Coffee at 43 on winning the Great North Lincolnshire Cake-off.

“Your white chocolate and orange cheesecake was clearly a favourite among the people that visited your café.”

She continued: “We have got some wonderful cafes, tearooms and coffee shops across North Lincolnshire that have already taken part in the Teapot Trail.

“We are now on the lookout for more tearooms to get involved in this year’s Teapot Trail.

“Please get in touch with us and be part of the 2016 Teapot Trail.”
