A fun half hour or so judging cakes. Some great efforts and surprise ingredients.
Congratulations to Denise Williams for her hemispherical World Cup football cake, with all the icing in the style of the Brazuca, the official football of the 2014 World Cup. The inside betrayed a chocolate orange flavour sponge, tasty as well as aesthetically pleasing.
Some other terrific efforts, as Andy Townsend would say. Phil Neville commented that “she’s got that in her locker” before everyone tucked in. Not sure yet how much has been raised for SANDS but it was at least £60 with still more coins appearing in the bowl. Thank you to Helen Hughes especially for arranging and everyone for baking and buying.
