Every year the Telegraph Hill festival in South East London, hosts an annual cake competition. Each year there are set themes and bakers and cake decorators can enter a cake based on the themes. The festival is open to the public, who get to come along and sample as many or as few (as if…) delicious cakes and then cast their vote for the winner
The themes for 2016 were:
- Shakespeare (the event took place on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, so this was most fitting)
- Brazilian Bakes (we do have the Olympics looming…)
- Teatime favourites (you can’t beat a good teatime treat)
- Cakes by Kids (it’s great to inspire the next generation of bakers)
“It always amazes me how people from the entire community embrace my annual Cake Competition as part of the Telegraph Hill Festival,” said organiser, Roz Salik. “From creating incredible bakes, to coming along for the tasting and public voting. It’s fun for everyone!”
Here are the winners from the different categories.
Well done to all those who took part. We’re already licking our lips in anticipation of 2017.
