The first weekend of October started with “The Great Watford Bake Off “ as part of Watford Food and Drink Week 2017 a fundraising event for Peace Hospice Care.
Why is the community raising funds for Peace Hospice Care?
Peace Hospice Care is dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients and families facing a life limiting illness by providing care and support in the setting of their choice. All the services are free to patients across Hertfordshire supported by their skilled staff and team.

The Great Watford Bake Off event took place at St Mary’s Church located at Watford Town Centre. Kids as young as 4 to 7 year old took part in the event to support the cause.
So as part of the bake off you could enter as Junior, Amateur, Professional or Corporate in the following categories .
Cupcakes & Tray Bakes: The challenge was to make 12 identical servings of your favourite cupcake or tray bake.
Peace of Cake
A classic take on the cakes from a traditional Lemon Drizzle to classic Victoria Sponge, Chocolate Fudge Cake or even a Carrot Cake.
When I got to St Mary’s Church the judges were half way through tasting and marking the Peace of Cake category.
As the name suggests it is elaborate, extravagant and eccentric.
Alice in Wonderland Themed cake
I was amazed at the local talents from my town. It was great to see people come together in a very British manner over cake and tea. I hope you enjoy the cakes virtually as I did photographing them.
