The Sailing Holidays London Office does the Bake Off
We all know that the TV show The Great British Bake Off has been sweeping the nation by storm for years now, with Mary Berry as the loveable main attraction and Paul Hollywood's harsh criticism drawing in millions of viewers each week. And as the show came to a teary and tense final last week, here at the Sailing Holidays London office we thought we would honour the occasion by taking part in our very own version of the Bake Off.
Now the rules are simple. Participation is compulsory (partners are allowed to assist so long as they are credited!) and each week one member of the office has to create a baking masterpiece! Everyone in the office votes anonymously and marks on presentation and taste and also makes a small donation if they wish for a charity which will be decided at the end of the competition. And before you ask yes that does mean cake every week from now until Christmas! The theme is a very creative 'Christmas' theme and so far we have had two entries to the competition.
Just to let you know what you're in store for... here's something Hannah from Admin whipped up last year, not even for a special occasion, just a casual 3D boat cake!
First up was Bareboat's very own original member Lucinda creating this delicious Bailey's chocolate cheesecake on the left and week two was another Bareboat team member, Abby who created some dairy free (catering for all office allergies) dark chocolate brownie lollipops on the right!
It's safe to say so far Bareboat has made a strong start for the competition (even if we are a little biased) with no leftovers, just crumbs left on both occasions! Next week Henry from Admin takes over and we can't wait to see what sweet (or savoury) Christmassy treat he whips up!
