Multi-tiered rainbow cakes, sugar spun crowns and chocolate corgis were featured amongst some of the outstanding entries received in our ‘Design a Cake fit for the Queen’ competition.
Local Food Links asked the children “If you had the job of designing the Queen’s 90th Birthday Cake, what would it be like?” The creative response from the children was amazing with incredible attention to detail and consideration of favours, fillings and of course the all-important decorations! From edible candles, bubble-gum flowers and chocolate corgis to gold balls, grenadier guards and ‘dribbly’ icing!
Kitt Sullivan, age 6, from Thorners Primary School, Litton Cheney scooped the award in the younger age group for his Vanilla Palace cake winning ‘The Queens Hat’ book and celebratory cupcakes for his whole class.
Abigail Sims, age 9, from Milldown Primary School, Blandford was the older age group winner, her beautiful 3 tier design included hollowed out centres filled with gold covered chocolate balls.
Caroline Morgan, Chief Executive of Local Food Links said,
‘We love to inspire children’s interest in food. We were so impressed by the competition entries, not only for their creativity but also for their consideration of flavours and ingredients – we are confident Her Majesty would be delighted with any one of these outstanding cakes!’
