Monoposto Baking Grand Prix 2010


Mallory Park, 29th August

The first Monoposto Baking Grand Prix saw intense competition from 17 entrants. BGP organiser Sarah Fern and the two Judges-of-Fact, Dave Hirst and Simon Davey, were extremely impressed by the standard of preparation of the entries.

Results were determined by a two part scoring system, with points out of ten awarded for presentation and for texture/taste. The first four competitors crossed the finish line in a dead heat, so these four took part in a run-off to determine the podium positions.

The full results are:

Congratulations to all the entrants – the standard was really high and everyone enjoyed eating the competing exhibits afterwards…
…and may thanks to Sarah Fern and Sara Hughes for thinking up this excellent competition (and for the cakes!).

Thanks also to Dave Hirst for his professional input in the judging.

Several people asked the treasurer for the recipe for his flapjacks so that they could avoid making the same mistakes. So here is the recipe which (honestly) he followed.

Jane Asher is famous for cakes. But not as famous as the Monoposto Racing Club
