Help for Heroes Phoenix House Recovery Centre in Catterick Garrison held their own Bake Off competition on Thursday 26th March to launch the start of the ‘Bake for Heroes’ national campaign which began on 18th April 2015.
Diana Beard from The Great British Bake Off demonstrated how to bake and ice a Chocolate Mocha Easter Cake and five veterans took up the challenge. All five created delicious cakes which were judged by Diana and her two co-judges, Vera Hughes and Wendy Lee from Stainton WI.
The winner, Anna Pollock, was thrilled to receive the title of ‘Master Cake Baker’ and received a certificate and voucher for Afternoon Tea for Two at Crathorne Hall Hotel, Yarm, Cleveland. The event was enjoyed by all the bakers who were inspired to continue baking at home.
