On Friday 15th June at precisely 12.00 BST we will be announcing the winner of our Forman’s Jubilee Bake Off competition! We’ve been working our way through the entries, testing puddings and cogitating over cakes. We were absolutely bowled over by the quality of the entries and can’t wait to make the big announcement. And in true competition style… here’s a quick reminder of the entries along with our judges comments…
1st Prize – A pair of tickets to Forman’s incredible Olympic dining experience, plus a guest post on the Forman & Field blog.
Runner Up - Diamond Jubilee hamper
Lavendar and Lovage
Royal Elderflower & Lemon Curd Butterfly Cakes
Cute as a button butterfly cakes and camp as Christmas pavlova crowns. Celebratory, pretty and impressive yet still easy to cook and clearly described.
What Kate Baked
Elderflower Syllabub with Lemon Curd Biscuits
Classic flavour combinations and recipes updated and executed with real style. Perfect modern British baking.
At Home with Mrs M
Elderflower & Lemon Victoria Sponge
Stripped down minimalism, brave frill-free cooking with nothing to hide behind but one gorgeous cake. And what a cake it was!
Lemon Meringue Freezer Cake
A party cake for those with their mind on Pimm’s and friends but unwilling to compromise on cakey accompaniments.
A Posh Jubilee Trifle (or two)
She said trifle, and then she said it again. No holds barred mega desserts of truly Regal proportions. We may not be allowed to eat another dessert for 60 years after one of these, what a way to go…
Lemon Curd Butterfly Cakes
Mulled Pear Crumble with Crème Anglais Ice Cream
‘What is more British than a butterfly cake?’ She asked. A butterfly cake with a phone box or a soldier sporting a bearskin on top, that’s what. Then to further confirm the joy of British baking Jo hit us with every Frenchman’s favourite pudding, a mighty crumble.
Working London Mummy
A Royal Jubilee Tea Party
Three incredible desserts, full of invention and joy. Twists on tried and tested flavours and presentation worthy of the greatest British menu.
Red, white and blue layer cake
A feat of baking fanciness and wizardry indeed. It beggars belief that work that would stretch mere mortals to their cooking limit was completed by this talented baker with a broken arm! Literally with one arm behind her back. Yes, there are extra marks for showing off.
