It’s the South East England regional final in the Braxted Park Estate on Britain’s Best Bakery and the four bakeries that made it through to this round – 1066 Bakery, The Cake Shop Bakery, Outsider Tart Bakery and Cinnamon Square Bakery – were put to the test once again by judges Mich Turner and Peter Sidwell to see who will go on to the national finals.
The first test for the bakeries is the Afternoon Tea challenge. They had to prepare 5 items consisting of sweet and savoury bakes that must all be baked to perfection in only 3 hours.
The second task for the bakeries is the Judges Choice Cake challenge. All the bakeries were given the same ingredients and had to bake an orange chiffon cake with Swiss meringue butter cream.
After a tense day in the Kitchen it was the The Cake Shop Bakery that came out on top with their wonderful bakes that included smoked duck sandwiches and lavender shortbreads for afternoon tea, that saw them win the South East England regional final.
