Cowburns Bakery became the second bakery to be voted off Britain’s Best Bakery 2014 Finals after the Chelsea Pensioners Challenge

Today the four remaining bakeries in Britain’s Best Bakery finals went head to head to try to book a place in the grand finals of the competition.

Angel Share Bakery, The Cake Shop Bakery, Cowburns Bakery and Maison Mayci are the bakers who must rise to the challenges of the second day of the finals baking at the Royal hospital in London.

There’s no margin for error as judges Mich Turner and Peter Sidwell charge the bakeries with the challenge of creating a new afternoon tea menu for some very discerning clients, the Chelsea Pensioners – to include a tasty loaf, a fondant fancy and the ultimate Chelsea Bun.

At the end of the day only three bakeries will move on to the grand finals.

After a tough day in the kitchen, the bakery that the judges had to say goodbye to was, Cowburns Bakery.
