Faced with the arduous task of sampling no less than a dozen different chocolate cakes this morning, Newark’s answer to Mary, Mel and Sue took a deep collective breath, seized their spoons and jumped straight in!
Judging the entries in one of the categories of The Big Newark Bake Off was a tough job but who better to take it on than June, Tina and Sue, Radio Newark‘s Girls Around Town, well known for their championing of everything chocolatey?
The cakes were judged on taste and texture, with no points awarded for the quality of the decorating (although they did look very impressive!). It was a close-run thing, with the entries scoring pretty highly on the mmmmm-ometer, but after sixty calorie-laden minutes the results were in.
