We thought long and hard about issuing you a Baked Alaska challenge this week, but decided against it, one Bin Gate is enough for us. So instead we’re asking you to get your almond hats on and create a marzipan-inspired cake.
Our celebrity judge this week is the fabulous Fiona Cairns. With her dual training as a graphic designer and pastry chef, Fiona’s creations are always stunning works of art. Fiona and her team create cakes for Harrods, Selfridges, Waitrose and La Bon Marche, creating more than 2 million cakes a year!
Fiona will be judging your skill at using marzipan in a cake. That’s it. You can choose what you bake and everything else, but make sure it includes marzipan in an interesting and exciting way if you want to be in with a shout of winning.
Once again we’ve put together a PDF for the challenge. It outlines the theme, what you’re being judged on and also provides you with a sample recipe to serve as inspiration and some tips on using marzipan.
Remember we’ll be keeping a close eye on the following:
Like in previous weeks you can enter the competition via social media. Tweet a picture of your marzipan delight using the hashtag #renshawbakeoff or upload it to our Facebook page.
We’re also upping the ante this week and the lucky winner will get a £50 Renshaw Baking voucher to spend at renshawbaking.com.
