Who is our baking champion?

October 13, 2016

Each year the Nexus Community comes together to network, eat cake and raise money from Macmillan Cancer Support. Who emerged from the fourth annual Bake-off with the sweet taste of victory?

The Nexus Business community from all three of our Young Street buildings gathered together in force recently for the hotly contested Nexus Bake Off as part of the Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Entries were judged on both taste and appearance by our non-baking volunteers Rob from CreDec and Liane from Brainwave. Their discerning palates worked their way through a lot of cake to find this year’s champions.

Top prize was taken by the Lime and Marscapone Tart baked by Emma of IT recruitment specialists NSK Consultants.

Second place went to the Tarte Tatin with rosemary & cardamom baked by Simon from Edinburgh Film Company.

Third place was taken by Design 33 consultant Sheree with her classic Carrott Cake.

The total raised for Macmillan was £234.13, our community came together and many networking opportunities created. Overall, the fourth annual Bake Off was a hit! Thank you to everyone who came along and took part.
