Macmillan Cake Off at Oulton Manor

Competition was in the air at the Oulton Manor Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning on 30 September as residents, relatives and staff had baked cakes for a ‘cake off’.

Head chef Judith Huby was the judge and she had a very difficult task narrowing down the wide range of scrumptious entries.

In the end it was home manager Stephanie Dyson’s passion fruit pavlova that won the day with its fruity, tangy and refreshing filling contrasting with the sweetness of the meringue. Second place went to deputy manager Julie Jemson for her blueberry baked New York cheesecake and third place went to resident Rene Atkin for her carrot and walnut cake with prosecco frosting.

Buns baked and decorated by residents and packets of Oulton Manor’s very own homemade shortbread were on sale too, and there was a raffle and tombola to raise extra cash for Macmillan.

Stephanie Dyson said: “We’ve had a lot of fun over the last few days preparing for the coffee morning. And I’m delighted to have won the cake competition although judge Judith assures me it was an extremely close thing!

“Everyone is absolutely thrilled that we’ve raised a total of £230 for Macmillan and thank you to all those who have supported us.”
