The results of the Crown Bake-Off have been announced and a huge well done goes to Ralph for winning first place with his amazing chocolate mousse cake. 

Judged in equal parts for presentation and taste, Emily picked up second place for her Crown-branded white chocolate cheese cake with raspberries, with Hannah in third place with her very well-received fig and hazelnut bread.

The judges (Nicky, Indra and Frankie), inspired by the Great British Bake Off’s Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, had quite the challenge on their hands with so many worthy entries to choose from.

All in aid of a fantastic cause,we raised £90 in total, which has been matched by Crown, making a total of £180.  All monies will be donated to Sense, a UK charity which works to enable deafblind people to live fulfilling and aspirational lives as independently as possible.  One aspect of the important work they do is provide unique learning experiences for adults and children who are deafblind.  Watch this space to find out how much money we have managed to raise!

A big thanks to Helena for organising the Bake Off - it was very much enjoyed, even if it most definitely did not help us in our post Christmas health drives!
