Battle of the bakers
20 July 2021
Well, it was definitely top marks for enthusiasm! Our café Bake Off contestants went all out to impress when they took on their final challenge – designing and making a 1.5ft dessert tower.
Taking over the kitchen after hours yesterday, the young staff teams faced the ultimate test so often suffered by bakers in the TV version tent – extreme heat. But they remained unfazed, even when it came to the clearing up.
Emily A and Max made a spectacular assembly of profiteroles, sponge cake with chocolate buttercream, brownies and churros rings. But Emily B and Raza won the round and the overall contest with their delicate meringues and macarons which they fashioned into an impressive summer fruit pavlova peak. To us though, they are all star bakers!
Judge their efforts for yourself in the café by enjoying a taste of their creations in deconstructed form.
