It's Great British Bake Off Time in the UK Bathrooms Office!

Here in the UK Bathrooms office we have all been getting into baking in preparation for the return of The Great British Bake Off (GBBO). We had a mini cake baking completion between staff, with a final winner. Stakes were high and the competition reached fever pitch as we all took to the kitchens each weekend to create our best cake.

The cakes were judged by Dave Laugher (Product Development Manager and Dad of UK B sponsored Olympian Diver Jack Laugher) who definitely had his fill of delicious cakes. Although there was no prize for the winner (and no fame either like the TV show) being known as the cake Queen or King in the office was enough for us.

The Winners:

1st. Amy – Pims Cake

2nd. Lily – Chocolate and Strawberries Cake

3rd. Jackie – Summer Fruit and Cream Cake

Jackies Summer Fruit and Cream Cake

Amy’s Pims Cake stole the show with its delicious cucumber icing and soft moist cake. It scored highly for originality and summery-ness! A special mention also goes to Declan, our new office admin apprentice who got kudos for his efforts as he’s only 16 and did really well.

We are all huge fans of the GBBO which starts tonight and will be watching with bated breath to see if any cakes on the show match our fabulous creations. Keep up with us as we follow the show with #GBBO on Twitter!
