Looks like something from a particulary difficult Great British Bake Off challenge, doesn't it? Well, the good news is that there's no baking involved - just head over to your local Asda, hand over £12 and it's all yours.

It's one of many award winners from the 2015 Quality Food & Drink Awards, held this week in London. If you want to make shopping easier, just check out the list of worthy winners below - from snacks to ready made meals and bread - here's the products that the food experts rated top of their field.

As well as this fabulous Asda cake, which won the Celebration Cakes category - we also took a shine to the winner of the Chocolate & Confectioner category, this delish looking Superb Salted Peanut Caramel chocolate bar by Essex-based The Grown Up Chocolate Company.
