Bake Off Challenge
There were fifty seven entries. Grace from 1st Hardwick Rainbows impressed the judges with her heart shaped biscuits and Ellie a winner from 3rd Banbury Brownies decorated her cakes with owls. Chloe Pearson from 1st Bodicote guides thought hard about what to bake and how to relate it to guiding and cooked chocolate brownies and covered them with melted marshmallows, camp fire treat, making her the winner in the guide section. Marie Idziaczek also from 1st Bodicote Guides was crowned the adult Great Bake Off Champion with her homemade bread, scones and viennese whirls cooked with locally sourced ingredients.
Judges Janice and Pauline who cook professionally and Madeline who is well known for her home baked cakes were helped in their task by the town mayor Councillor Tony Mepham. They were all impressed with the number and variety of entries and were pleased that young people were interest in baking.
