#GBBO madness takes hold of the RSE Team :)

Today is the FINAL of The Great British Bake Off – and boy has it taken our office by storm. With the bake off being a “piping hot” topic of conversation. We decided to jump on the “Wagon Wheel” and give it “all of muffin” in our social media competition.

With bake off being a “piping hot” topic of conversation. We decided to jump on the “wagon wheel” and give it “all or muffin” in our social media competition.

We held a #GBBO Blind Taste Test which 7 of our team members took part baking until the wee hours of this morning ready for the competition today!

We were blown away by the entries and here is a little bit more information about the bakes- and the winner! (Minus the funky graphic drawing of their ideas!)

Alan: Death by Golden Chocolate.

This was a single tier chocolate sponge with a very high content of cocoa and finished with a golden chocolate ganache and spires of dark chocolate to decorate. Nom!

Karin: Malteser Madness

This was a two tier chocolate sponge cake made with chocolate Malteser infused butter icing throughout. It was then iced with a chocolate butter cream and a circular pattern of maltesers covered the top! A few may have fallen off on the journey into work – so naturally there was a packet hanging around to “top them up” 🙂

Louise: Chocolate Chessboard

This was a stunning two tier chocolate sponge cake made with a chocolate orange filling. This was then beautifully piped with white and milk chocolate ganache to resemble a chess board and then topped with handmade solid chocolate chess pieces. Impressive!

Martin: Leaden Chocolate Nuclear Surprise

This was a two tier chocolate sponge made with an added extra special ingredient of – SWEET CHILLI SAUCE. It was wonderfully iced with chocolate ganache and yellow fondant … in the shape of a TOXIC WASTE sign! Needless to say- Mandy did try this cake – however she failed to swallow it! Ha ha.
