After 6 rounds of competition, our finalists have risen to the top in the MAST annual Bake Off. An Architectural Showstopper themed final saw contestants whisk it all in an effort to claim the much-coveted title of Bake Off Champion. The round saw entries covering a variety of buildings from all around the world such as The Barcelona Pavilion, New York Skyline and Mud Huts to famous Glasgow landmarks such as the SSE Hydro and the Transport Museum.
To turn up the heat even higher, pastry chef Michaela Wright of 1 Balmoral, Edinburgh, was brought in to help judge the contest, offering her expert palate and eye for detail, giving out the prize of the Star Baker award to Aden Patterson for her Transport Museum cake.
With the votes locked in, our overall champion was declared with Aden, again securing a narrow victory, claiming both prizes on the day. Well done to all finalists but in this type of contest, it tends to come down to the fine margarines…
Aden commented ‘delighted to have won and secured bragging rights for the coming year, makes staying up till all hours the night before worth it!!’
