SALISBURY’S top bakers were put to the test at the weekend with the city’s very own Bake Off competition.

As part of Foodie Sunday and Taste Salisbury festivities, the competition gave budding bakers the chance to wow judges with their flavoursome creations.

Fourteen cakes were entered, judged by Mayor of Salisbury Caroline Corbin, Danny Bozic from Charter 1227 Catering, Dan Mills from The Cake Forge and freelance photographer Spencer Mulholland.

In the over 16s category, first place went to Jane Sales with her Groot cake, and second place went to Louise Shergold for her Peter Rabbit masterpiece.

In the under 16s, first place was awarded to Chloe Korb for her fruit Victoria sandwich, and Amelia Shergold came second with her Victoria sandwich with cherries.

Jane said she was “absolutely over the moon” to win with her Marvel-inspired dish, adding: “My daughter also loves baking and entered into the competition in the Under 16s category.

“We have already been looking on YouTube to see what we can do with the prize which was so kindly donated by The Cake Forge."

Councillor Corbin added: “A big well done to the winners of the Great Salisbury Bake Off.

"It was a pleasure judging the cakes and I was so impressed by the talent of all the bakers in the competition. Thank you to everyone who entered.”

Taste Salisbury came to a close with Foodie Sunday on September 5, and "delighted with its success", Cllr Corbin said: "An estimated 2,500 people turned up to enjoy the event which featured tastings, food demos, an array of local vendors and live music throughout the day."

Also speaking about events during the food and drink festival, Tim Tonkin of restaurant Allium said: "It was great to have an opportunity to highlight many of the great food producers and businesses we have around Salisbury and see the city so busy.

"Our tasting menus and their selected wines from Bluestone Vinyards and The Artisan Wine and Spirit Co were very well received, it was lovely to have such a great response, so much so that we are already looking ahead at how we can make them a more permanent fixture."
