Trick or Treat
This year we went all spooky with the annual Stepladder bake-off. The rules: to create an (edible) cake with the ultimate scare-factor – an open-brief to inspire a little creativity and imagination.
Among the usual Halloween suspects; pumpkins, ghosts, graveyard's and the like, we were also 'treated' to some more gruesome creations in the form of oozing blood, maggot riddled hearts and human brains.
We called upon top Vampire judge, Mary Berry aka Danny at Push Print and his mini helper to eat their way through these tasty delights and decide who had the scariest cake of them all.
A well deserved first place went to Corey, for his blondie brownie graveyard with white chocolate chunks and pecans, topped with a salted caramel glaze and Oreo cookie dust.
Second place was awarded to Lauren, for her Saw inspired chocolate brownie bear trap and third place went to Will, who won the 'brain-off' against Mark - his bottom was a little less soggy...
Not forgetting Aidan, who was presented with the wooden spoon for his bleeding raspberry jam Victoria Sponge.
What ever next?!
