The Great Agency Bake-Off [in pictures]

Today was the day we held our much anticipated Great Agency Bake-Off. Staff from across the office whipped up sponges, meringues  brownies, biscuits and more, all resulting on one bountiful bake sale, seeing us raise over £140 for our nominated charity of the year, Child Action North West.

If you read my blog yesterday, you’ll have seen that I put my [very] limited baking skills to the test to bake a light hazelnut cake with with a chocolate ganache. It was a modest attempt, I’ll admit, especially when placed next to some of the cakes made by the more experienced bakers in the office – but it tasted lovely and I was proud of my attempt.

DSC_7908The Bake-Off was judged by our very own Mary and Paul, who scored each baked treat on their appearance , effort and taste. All three of the winners put a lot of love, effort and thought into their creations, and the overall winner presented the only savory  entry of the day.

The Great Agency Bake Off winners were:

Jenny, in third place with a wonderful Lemon Merruinge Pie

And last but by no means least, Luke, who landed the top spot with some cheese scones and homemade chutney – I hope to test out and blog his recipe soon

DSC_7785Although I’m no good at baking [yet], I do love a bit of homemade cake! Here’s some more pictures from the day :).

Finally, well done to Alex and Nic for organising such a great event.

Now, off to tuck into some more cake with a cup of tea!

Until tomorrow
