As anticipated, this year’s Great Roath Bake Off was the biggest yet. Organiser Wayne Courtney and his army of volunteers did an amazing job keeping everything in check and making sure the judging ran smoothly. I’m not sure how many cakes we ate this year but it was over 100 between us.
I was really impressed with the quality of the entries. The winner of the professional category, Gareth Davies is an absolute genius! I was actually sad to eat his entry, it was a work of art.
Here are the winners:
Bake Off: Nell Pugh for her chocolate peanut butter cake
Junior Bake Off: Eleri Ford
Professional: Gareth Davies
Savoury: Dave of Halcyon Daze

You’ve probably seen the posters and billboards all over Cardiff. This year’s Great Roath Bake Off is going to be huge!
Since starting in 2012, the bake off has grown and developed and this year it is set to be the best yet. With celebrity judges, more categories, live music, stalls and raffles, organiser Wayne Courtney has gone all out.
As well as the celebrities, I will also be judging again along with Sarah and Marie-Clare from The Cakehouse and Matt Appleby from Easyteas.
If you’d like to enter, The Great Roath Bake Off will take place on Saturday 12th April at St Andrew’s Church Hall at 11am.
As well as the main Bake Off, where there will be three categories: Best Cake, Best Bake (bread/pies) and Best Professional Cake, there is also a Junior Bake Off for under 16s.
Entry to each category is £3, with all proceeds going to charity.
You can find out more here. I’m off to find some stretchy trousers!
