Staff host their own Bake-Off final


Staff at Balance Health Club, Arena Sports, Kettering Conference Centre and the Lighthouse Theatre hosted their own Bake-Off final last week at the Kettering venue. Thankfully there were no soggy bottoms and surprisingly some fabulous showstoppers!

Twelve superb cakes were baked and brought in for judging. There were some unusual and creative bakes including a peanut butter beer-pouring cake made by Kieran Johnson and a sugar craft boot-camp design baked by Tom Campbell which went down well with the Balance fitness team. However the star baker and overall Bake-Off winner was KCC’s Helen Plowman (below right) with a colourful and delicious strawberry Victoria sponge, which we are told is her Signature Bake.

Indy Mann, Ops Director and head of the judging panel said

I can’t believe the effort everyone put in, the cakes were delicious and our customers and members were delighted to help eat them all up – well done to all the bakers.
