Following a fantastic bake off in our head office in Wellington last year, yesterday we held the 6th annual Great Icebreaker Cake Bake Off.
This years competition was our biggest event yet with 15 cakes entered, and the standard of the entries were truly scrumptious. Entrants had gone to huge lengths to take out this years title and trophy (a wooden rolling pin with winners names engraved on it). Cakes were baked just prior to submitting so they were warm; there were beautiful cake stands, decorations and name cards designed; and one entrant even spent half of his Sunday testing and getting his cake ‘just right’ for judging!
Congratulations to the following Wellington staff members (as judged by the famous NZ chef Ruth Pretty):
1st PLACE – Rebecca Toomer and her Lemon Drizzle Cake
2nd PLACE – Heidi Anderson and her Schwarzwälder Torte
3rd PLACE – Tracey Davies and her Caramel Apple Cupcakes
BEST PRESENTATION – Christina Stanley and her Magpie Meringue Cake
PEOPLE’S CHOICE – Di Clapperton and her Sticky Date Cake
Congrats to all who entered, bring on next years comp!
