Death by Dessert-a-Thon

Well we’ve had fun in the office today!  We have indulged our senses and appetites with Hopewiser’s first Dessert-a-Thon.

Ten entries were submitted with a whole host of AMAZINGLY calorific creations including panna cotta with blood coulis, pistachio cake & truffles, treacle tart, lemon cheese cake, meringue & poached pears, sherry cream and two chocolate cakes. To taste these creations you had to give a little money to our chosen charity, The Children’s Adventure Farm (CAFT). After much tasting, a bit of a lie down to make more room - and a second tasting, our votes were collected and counted. 

And we are proud to announce JAN as the winner with her Gin & Lemon cake and AMY runner up with her Oreo Cookie cake. 

Huge congratulations to Jan & Amy and well done everyone who put in such an effort to produce their creation.  It was very difficult to choose a favourite. The fun was all for a good cause with £47 raised which will be added into the pot of money to be given to CAFT at the end of this year.

Here’s to the next one! Just give me a week to recover from eating TEN desserts!
