Congratulations to the winners of The Great Salisbury Bake Off

on Monday, 05 September 2022.

Salisbury City Council hosted The Great Salisbury Bake Off as part of Foodie Sunday last Sunday (Sunday 4th September) which gave budding bakers the opportunity to impress the judges with their fantastic creations.

Overall, 11 fantastic cakes were entered into the competition which featured a lemon sponge, a floating flower pot cake, a teddy bear cake and many more. Danny from Charter 1227 Catering, Dan from The Cake Forge and Craig and Beth from Love Salisbury radio station judged the cakes and were looking for the best decorated, taste and inside look.

The Great Salisbury Bake Off was sponsored by Charter 1227 and The Cake Forge who both kindly donated prizes including a £30 gift card and a figure sculpting set.

Dan from The Cake Forge said, “We would like to thank everyone who entered and congratulate all the winners. Also to Salisbury city council for putting on a fantastic day."

Danny from Charter 1227 said, “To pick a winner was very difficult as there were so many delicious and well thought out entries. It’s always an honour to be asked to judge these competitions and to meet so many home cooks with a passion for baking, especially good to see so many of the next generation taking part. Well done to everyone that entered. I enjoy being part of Salisbury’s Foodie Sunday, from doing cookery demonstrations, judging competitions to serving our street food, Salisbury City Council do a such great job organising the day. I’m looking forward to next year already.”

Foodie Sunday marked the tenth and final day of Taste Salisbury; a food and drink celebration across the city. The event was a great success with food demos, an array of local vendors, live music and street performers throughout the day. An estimated 2000 people visited the food and drink extravaganza and Salisbury City Council would like to thank everyone who visited and took park in the event.
