We celebrated the arrival of Spring by holding a bake-off. We held the competition at our 11,000 sqm design and manufacturing facility in Gamlingay, England. We had 3 categories of bakes:

  • Best of large cakes and traybakes
  • Best of Biscuits and Cupcakes
  • Best of Breads and Savoury

In addition, we judged for Tastiest, Best Design, Most KMG and, most important of all, Star Baker!!

Judges

We knew that the competition would be fierce and it was! In order to ensure strict impartiality we asked two Gamlingay village residents to judge

  • Adrian Semerene, Lead Pastor of Gamlingay Baptist Church. Those of you who have been to his church on Mondays for coffee and cake would know that he is a baking expert himself!
  • Sue Barrett, The Poppyfield’s Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator, previously a member of the Cordon-Bleu team
  • the third judge was KMG managing director Helen Weatherley

Gamlingay Food Project

Gamlingay Baptist church run the Gamlingay Food Project in partnership with St Mary’s Church, Gamlingay. The Gamlingay Food Project was set up to support those in need in the community (and surrounding areas) as well as care for our planet by reducing food waste (and also feeding more people). It is located in the Alms House Chapel, on Church Street, across from the Pharmacy. You can read more about the project here: https://www.gbchurch.org.uk/the-gamlingay-food-project and to show how much we appreciate our judges, KMG has made a donation to this very worthwhile project.

Cakes!

There was an amazing range of cakes and special mention has to go to the KMG Polo shirt, EMC2 vibratory conveyor and Sleepless nights. Not forgetting the winning bake – black forest gateau

The judges could tell that each baker put their heart and soul into their cakes and for us that was much appreciated. After the judging, the rest of the team tucked in and within moments, only crumbs remained.

Congratulations to all the participants, it was a great start to a Monday morning!
