So earlier this year the amazing Team Honk Relay took place where up and down the breadth of the country bloggers came together to pass a baton from Lands End all the way up to John O’Groats. You cann read more about the relay and all the fun, tears and monies rasied here . To celebrate all things Team Honk and to help riase some more money, I held a Team Honk Great Bloggers Bake Off where bloggers were asked to bake something with a Sport Relief/Sporty/Team Honk Relay/ Red Nose theme – it could be as OTT as they wanted or it can be very modest. It could be funny or serious and even if it all went wrong, to blog about it anyway because it could be chosen for being the funniest.
There were 17 entries in total and the bake off has raised £76 to date which is brilliant news too.
So who won then? Well I was lucky enough to have the amazing Emma Freud and her daughter Scarlett judge the bake off, and they chose the winner and the 2 runner ups and the following text is her own words.
Mummy Makes Cakes and her map of England Relay Comp Cake with red noses inside it. So good that I admire AND slightly hate the lady who made it. I would love to know how it tasted… and am in awe of her icing skills.
Actually Mummy and her chess/football cake. TWO sports in ONE cake.. PLUS CAKE POPS which everybody knows make you cry because they are so difficult to do.
Missy b and family’s elephant. a love letter/cake to damini… made me go rather teary.
but every single one of the cakes could have had a prize… for being beautiful and delicious and a massive act of kindness… sport relief has raised 53m so far and it’s still coming in – the greatest total we have ever had… and an incredible transforming amount of money for our grants team to be able to allocate. we couldn’t love ALL the mummy bloggers more.
**Thank you Emma and Scarlett for taking the time to judge the bake off and very well done to Jenny, Helen and Missy – please contact me with your email addresses so I can get your prizes sorted and sent out to you.
