We are whipping through our bakers with Danielle creating a classic Victoria Sponge cake for the office.
Danielle referred to the cake as ‘Victoria Sponge The Rescue Cake’ because this was the second attempt at a bake. Danielle originally wanted to present us with a white chocolate raspberry Tart that unfortunately it did not set in time. Danielle instead baked another cake at 6am on Monday morning before work. At least we could all agree it was definitely fresh!
Danielle 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 skillful.
Daniel said this about her bake ‘As you know this cake was a replacement for a failed tart that didn’t set unfortunately. So I was awake at 6.00am baking away. This is something I bake on a regular basis so i didn’t need much assistance and I know the measurements already. I did attempt to jazz it up a little with combining glitter with the icing sugar to give it a little sparkle but I don’t think this helped looking at my scores.’
Danielle scored the following:
Presentation – 32/45
Skill – 27/45
Taste – 29/45
Total – 88/135
This puts Danielle in third place! The leader board is currently as follows:
