No soggy bottoms at Bramley Baths’ bake off!

By Kelvin Wakefield

Bramley Baths hosted their first ever ‘Great Bramley Bake Off’ on the morning of Tuesday, 4 June.

Their chief executive, David Wilford, had the very enviable task of judging and tasting the entries to the competition.

He said “There has been a very high standard, which showcases Bramley’s baking talent. This is one of many great ways to support the work that the Baths do, we hope to do it again next year. And we are happy to say that there were no soggy bottoms!”

The winning cake was a Victoria Sponge, baked by 13-year-old Maisy McConnell. The runner up was Judith Armitage with her lemon passionfruit mascarpone buns.

The money raised by the cake sale will go towards supporting Bramley Baths and the Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease
