Templecombe bake-off is icing on cake for charity
BUDDING bakers rose to the challenge on Saturday for Templecombe United Reformed Church's own version of the Great British Bake-off.
Inspired by BBC2's popular series, the bake-off attracted 54 exhibitors who produced a variety of wonderful cakes on the theme of Templecombe for Yeovil Women's Hospital's Flying Colours Appeal.
Judge for the day was Harriet Alvis, who has worked on two series of The Great British Bake Off. She was impressed with the standard of entries, and especially a cake baked by Alison Clements, who was awarded a special prize – a signed copy of Mary Berry's book "Real Food – Fast".
First prize winners were Caroline Gurzinski – speciality cake; Lin Allison – scones; Joyce White - Victoria sponge; Mary Cuss – cup cakes and Gemma Titcombe – cake decoration.
