The Great Frome Bake Off!

Frome District, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides took part in a bake off competition to raise money for Big Ted RUH appeal on Sunday 18th October. 

In the morning the Guides rose to the challenge of the unknown Technical bake (Swiss roll) and their own Signature bake (a tart of their choice).

Guides embraced on the technical bake, creating impressive results. The judges had a tough decision to make to crown the top Technical bake, which went to Emily Chapman and Natalie Howell from 3rd Frome Guides.

Meanwhile they were making the Signature bake, there were Bakewell tarts, chocolate tarts, and fruits tarts; the judges gave the top marks to Isabel Jones and Sophie Hancock from 4th Frome Guides with an amazing Lemon tart.

In the afternoon, Guides were selected to go through to the afternoon round. Rainbows and Brownies joined in with the competition with a fairy cake completion. There was a range of flavours and decoration.  Each participant cooked their cakes from scratch, producing promising results.

The winner of the Fairy cupcakes went to Jessica Meadows with a Hedgehog fairy cake design from 2nd Frome Rainbows, Amelia Preston Jackson from 4th Frome Brownies with a Minion cake design and Maddy Noding and Summer Vowells with a Popcorn creation cup cake from 4th Frome Guides.

The organisers said, “After the competition was over we had a visit from Big Ted, parents, family and friends came to ample the cakes and buy raffle tickets and refreshments. All money went to the Big Teds Bake Off and we raised £171.00.

“All of the participants had an enjoyable experience with minimal disasters. There were some amazing results.  Well done to all that participated. A huge thank you to all the leaders for all of your hard work. A special thank you to the Trefoil Guild who came along to help and see what the girls had been up to. Thank you to the judges for making those tough decisions.”
