For the third year running staff took part in The Great Blackhurst Budd Bake Off on Monday 11th July, raising funds for Park Community Academy.

As word had reached some staff that there may be a celebrity from the baking world judging the competition, the standard of entries was even higher this year....

Staff had 5 cakes to choose from for the award of Best Tasting Bake, the winner being Faye Harper for her Apricot, Pistachio & Rosewater Gateaux.  Faye also won Best Tasting Bake last year!

When it came to judging Best Presentation we were thrilled that Mark Tilling - UK Chocolate Master & winner of the BBC's 2016 Bake Off Crème de la Crème - agreed to decide on the winner.....

Congratulations to Shirley Devey for her cake being chosen by Mark for the Best Presentation Award!

Thank you to all staff who baked / donated and no doubt the competition will be back for 2017!
