The Umbrella Bake Off sees some colourful competition

The 'Great Umbrella Bake Off' sees some colourful competition

13 June 2016

We have a rogue baker in the office. Annie, one of our Account Managers has made this colourful and delicious 'Mermaidy Unicorn' vanilla sponge cake, with vanilla butter cream, handmade meringues and LOTS OF GLITTER! 

Here's what Annie had to say about her cake..

What’s the cake made of?

It’s a Vanilla Sponge with vanilla butter cream, handmade meringues and LOTS OF GLITTER. And E-Numbers. In fact it’s mostly E-numbers.

How long did it take you?

About 2 hours, which was mostly waiting for the meringues to surrender and messing about drinking wine.

What inspired you to make it?

I make wedding cakes and do a monthly market in Macclesfield where I live and in the 10 months I’ve been here I haven’t made a cake yet so I thought I’d treat the team!

What name have you given to your wonderful creation?


Annie has previously made wedding cakes for our staff members and will be creating the cake for Sarah's wedding, who won our most recent employee of the month.
