Helston girl takes top spot in pasty contest
6:40am Wednesday 6th March 2013 in Helston
A six-year-old girl from Helston was among the big winners at the second annual World Pasty Championships held at the weekend.
Tabitha Delbridge took the top spot in the Cornish pasty junior section of the competition, which was hosted by the Eden Project.
In the highly competitive amateur section reigning champion Billy Deakin from Mount Hawke maintained his title for another year - and this time around he managed to enjoy some of the glory.
Last year he missed the prize-giving ceremony because he had to get home to walk his dog Zero.
More than 125 professional and amateur bakers descended on Eden for the ceremony that is the Oggy Oscars.
They were watched by thousands of avid pasty fans, celebrating Cornwall's most famous food export in advance of St Piran's Day yesterday, Tuesday.
The competition is supported by the Cornish Pasty Association.
Alongside the competition the event featured activities for visitors to get involved with, from live music and comedy to pasty workshops, beer tasting at the Sharp's real ale bar and speed-crimping competitions.
