On May 1st, the Instore central, account and field teams duly assembled for the “Great Instore Bake Off” for Community Week. There were two categories for entries:
- Do it yourself – all decorations, ingredients need to be put together from scratch – No bought packets of mix
- The Special Ones – for the not so adventurous baker, anything goes except pre-baked & packaged cakes.
All cakes, cookies and yummy treats were presented in front of a judging panel and marked out of 10 under the following categories:
- Taste & Texture
Once judging was complete, all entries were put up for sale. Wendy Cane reports:

The Instore Bake Off was a huge success. We had 23 cakes, 1 entry of pancake rolls and 1 entry of chicken samosas.
The total so far raised stand at £92.59 with a few donations still to come in, we expect to have broken the £100 barrier by the end of the day*.
Our top judging panel crowned the Cream Horns the winner with a chocolate orange sponge a very close second.
* = the £100 barrier has indeed been broken - the amount raised now stands at £117.20.
