Following the success of the The Great Roath Bake Off where I was on the judging panel, I was thrilled to be asked back by the wonderful Wayne Courtney to judge the Spring Cake Off as part of the Made in Spring Festival in Roath.
Running from Friday to Tuesday last week, the Made in Spring Festival included music and film events, arts exhibitions and arts and crafts stalls with the Spring Cake Off taking place on the Sunday as part of the Roath Village Fiesta.
The Cake Off took place in the quirky Milkwood Gallery and there were 15 entries in total. Along with fellow judges Sarah and Marie-Clare from the delicious Cakehouse, Christian from the fabulous I loves the Diff, Tim Crowston and Allan Blair Beaton I got to work munching through the cakes.
We judged on taste, presentation and originality. There was a real mix in terms of quality including one bright spark who entered a Marks and Spencers cake! I didn’t come close to the top three which shows that home-baked is by far the best option!

After much deliberation, the top three cakes were revealed.
3rd Place: Gareth’s albino hedgehog cake
2nd place: Daniel’s lemon drizzle cake
1st place: Ann’s Easter Celebration Cake!
After the event everyone was free to tuck into the cakes and give suggestions to who they thought should win.
It was a fab event and I absolutely loved being a judge. Thank you so much Wayne for asking me to be involved again!
