BAKO North Western customers bake our 50th Birthday Cake

Professional winner Wedding Cakes by MarionAs part of BAKO North Westerns (BNW) 50th year celebrations, customers were invited to create the perfect Birthday Cake.

Customers and colleges in the North West region were asked to compete against one another to create our 50th celebratory cake.

As an open competition entrants were simply asked to wow us with their cake decorating skills while themeing their cake around BNW's 50th birthday.

Gemma Webster, Senior Marketing Executive, who organised the event commented that
"We couldn't celebrate our 50th year without a cake, and we know how talented our customers are so it made sense to turn to them for inspiration."

The contest was split into professional and student, allowing both our customer base and bakers of the future to enter.

Both categories were fiercely contested and it was left to judges John Robertshaw, our Technical Consultant, and sponsors Renshaw, to determine the winners.

Student winner Rebecca ComptonIn the professional category Wedding Cakes by Marion succeeded with her three tiered cake inspired by BNW's logo colours, a bakers hat and showcasing a range of BAKO products and finished goods.

The student category winner Rebecca Compton (Sheffield College), with her peak district inspired five tier cake, features her experience of seeing her delivery travel through the hillsides of where she lives along with celebratory bunting and topped with a birthday cupcake.

John Robertshaw noted that
"The standard was very high and you can see the amount of time and effort each person put into the creation of their cakes."

The winners will be represented with 200 in vouchers, a winner's trophy and certificate plus a canvas of their cake. Runners up received 100 in vouchers and a certificate.

Canvas's of the cakes will be displayed at our Family Fun Day event taking place at our base in Preston on the 3rd August.
