AsOne Bake Off “Butternut squash and Orange Cake”

We’re halfway through our bake off challenge and all the stops are being pulled out now by our novice bakers. Monday saw the turn of Tracey Rush with her unique cake. Tracey managed to make the latest bake a healthy one with a butternut squash and orange cake. The oranges were even hand picked herself fresh that day!

Tracey then topped the cake with fresh cream cheese and delicate orange zest. This one definitely had the office impressed with its unique flavour. She even went a step further creating a video of her baking experience.


Tracey was scored on the following:

Presentation – Each person will vote on how well they believe the baker decorated their cake. This can be done with anything the baker chooses and with any theme.

Taste – Each person will vote on how good they believe the bakers cake tasted. This does not have to necessarily have to be a sweet bake.

Skill – Each person will score the baker on how much skill was required to execute the bake. For example if it is a box made cake this requires little much skill, but if everything is homemade this will be classed as more skilful.

Tracey said this about her bake “I am not a regular baker but wanted to rise to the challenge and go for something different so choosing a cake with a vegetable seemed to meet the task. I really enjoyed making the video, it made the whole baking experience much more entertaining, and of course how else would anyone believe I could have baked such a great cake”
