Macmillan Coffee Morning & Blue Flame Bake Off

Posted by

The Blue Flame Bakers were out in force on Friday demonstrating their fantastic bakes as part of Macmillan Cancer Supports ‘Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning’

As it’s the season for the ‘Great British Bake Off’ we thought we’d add to the spirit of the day and host our own Blue Flame Bake Off.

The team entered their bakes in a variety of categories including: Cakes, Sweet Treats, Savoury, Pies & Tarts and Bread.

The varieties of entries were outstanding with everything from Finnish Christmas Bread, Quiches and Coffee Sponges entered for judging.

The bakes were judged by an expert panel. Our very own installation manager Ian Davidson (who in a former life was a very accomplished chef!) and Yvonne Wheeler a long term customer of Blue Flame, who is known for baking a variety of very tasty cakes for our engineers when they are working within her properties.

After a tough round of tasting & judging we had winners for each category who earned themselves some lovely certificates and prizes.

The morning was all rounded off with a pretty spectacular buffet lunch where everyone could try all of the bakes.
