Clearsilver Great British Bake-Off : The results

We’re very pleased to announce, that our brilliant bake sale raised £101 for Comic Relief today! There was certainly something for everyone, as evidenced by this sparse table at the end of the day…




We’d just like to say a huge thank you to everybody that came in and bought our cakes, and kindly donated their money.

The managers of two of our neighbouring businesses, as well as personal stylist, Liz Clothier, judged our home-made delicacies. The baking was judged on both taste, and looks. So without further ado, the judges’ scores were as follows…


Taste Looks
Gold Lemon Drizzle Red Velvet Cupcakes
Silver Peanut butter blondies Profiteroles


Taste Looks
Gold Pecan and white choc blondies Victoria sponge
Silver Peanut butter blondies Pecan and white chocolate blondies


Taste Looks
Gold Profiteroles Victoria sponge
Silver Banana and Walnut Loaf Chocolate cupcake


The overall winner for taste is… Eve! For her peanut butter and white chocolate blondies.



The overall winner for looks is… Kate! For her Victoria Sponge cake.




We also took social media into account, and collated tweets from the lovely lot that bought our baking! Here’s some examples of what was being said on Twitter…

Cake. Is there a finer word in the English language? Those four little letters are the subject of buttercream dreams. If you haven’t already realised, we love cake here at Clearsilver, almost as much as we love tea. A Friday just isn’t a Friday without afternoon treats!

Just in case you need a little baking inspiration, we’ve asked some experts, (well, our team), to divulge their favourite cakes. Who do you agree with? #HappyFriday!

Victoria: Carrot cake

Ian: Lemon cake

Eve: Chocolate orange cake

James: Chocolate cake

Louise: Coffee cake

Kate: Christmas cake
