From the Office… cottages4you bake-off

The chips are down…the talk is over…the cottages4you office ‘Bake Off’ competition is on!

Amazingly, a wide range of great looking cakes found their way into the competition, demonstrating that there are a number of budding Delia Smiths / Gordon Ramseys in our midst.

Some of the comments that the judges had on the entries:

  • Burnie’s biscuits: “The most burnt, most e numbers and the craziest decoration!”
  • Date & Walnut cake – Generally considered “the most professional” and won the ‘Best Cake EVER’ award from Ian G – Quote from Nick “it’s the cake most likely to have been made by your mum!”
  • Sponge cake – best branding and definitely the jammiest Buns – win the ‘booby prize’ and considered succulent!
  • Malteser Brownie cake – Split the judges in consistency – Paul claimed it ‘light’ but all thought it was delicious!
  • No Name, No shame – award for the best ‘floater’
  • Choc cake – considered the best for taste, presentation and quality – but let down by the dull name!
  • Ginger biscuits – win the prize for being closest in colour to Sal’s (my) hair colour – also the judges wanted to know where the rest of the biscuits
  • Ginger cake – delicious and moist!
