BLACKPOOL Victoria hospital’s Great BVH Bake Off Jab-oree has revealed its winner!
The competition, to bake items that reflected the Trust’s latest flu video, had some very inventive entries.
Baked items included a Swiss Roll in the shape of a syringe, an ‘achoo’ chocolate cake, cheese flavoured snot cobblers, camp cupcakes and the winner – the ‘cookie sneezecake’.
The competition was judged by Cheryl Morrison from local cake makers Too Nice To Slice, Funny Girls’ Brulay and the Trust’s flu video stars, Anthony Freestone and Luke Sumner.
Cheryl said: “The BVH Bake Off is a great idea and something that should be an annual event.
“There were some original designs but the overall winner looked good and tasted great.”
Brulee, who works at Funny Girls said: “They were all very good entries and we had a tough decision, but taste won through in the end. It’s a pity I can’t take it back to Funny Girls to keep Betty Legs Diamond and the team’s strength up through the Christmas shows. ”
The winner was interim Head of Blue Skies Hospitals Fund, Ann Hedley, with her entry ‘cookie sneezecake’. She wins a short cake decorating course at Too Nice To Slice.
The runner up was the ‘Achoo’ chocolate cake, entered by Hazel Preston.
The bakes, together with donated mince pies from Booths, Lytham, were sold to raise money for Blue Skies Hospitals Fund and made £50. The Occupation Health nurses were also on hand and gave out 60 flu inoculations.
