Chocolate cake replica of Olympic Stadium helps Fenland students to baking competition triumph
FOUR College of West Anglia students will take afternoon tea at a world-famous London store after triumphing in a national cake-making competition.
The young cake-bakers will be guests at Fortnum and Mason’s new Diamond Jubilee Tea Room, which was renamed at a ceremony attended by the Queen earlier this year.
Emma Symonds, 17, won first prize in the cake-making contest held at Westminster College, with her raspberry layer cake with a touch of elderflower.
Elizabeth Parry, 20, finished third with Loren Morgan, 17, from Wisbech, and Matthew Haynes, 17, also praised by the judges.
Elizabeth made a seed cake, while Matthew produced a 20cm chocolate cake replica of the Olympic stadium. Loren baked three different sorts of cup cakes, including one flavoured with champagne.
