Make & Bake Hamper winner announced

We have a winner!

Our July, Facebook & Twitter competition to win an amazing, bespoke, £50 Make, Bake & Decorate hamper was won by J. Hinsley with this stunning 40th Birthday celebration cake.

40th birthday cigarellos decorated cake

Decorated with Duo Cigarellos (half milk / half white chocolate), but cleverly applied to create a stunning & seamless decoration around the side of the cake. The effect was complimented, by the use of chocolate shells, in alternating colours, around the top & base of the birthday cake.

Our judges also commended several other entries:

P Hnat for their creative two-tier cake, using alternating white, milk & dark chocolate cigarellos, ribbon and foiled truffles.

L Cole for a Las Vegas / New York themed cake, decorated with foiled, novelty chocolate poker chips & chocolate playing cards. We particularly liked the ‘Big Apple’ clue on the top tier.

H Lee for a classic Raspberry & chocolate cake, with its simple, yet beautifully executed design on the top, which included a single cigarillo & chocolate flower.

Also highly commended was S Ruffles Chocolate Rose Pops, submitted via Twitter. Made using our white modelling chocolate with a chocolate truffle on the inside (made from white couverture chocolate). The miniature bottles & ribbon make a very effective display. Perhaps this picture was from a Wedding table setting?
