Hopewiser Summer Bake Off

Cakes

 

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” is how the saying goes. Here at Hopewiser we believe in a good balance between work and fun. Now most people are lovers of good food, and more specifically, cake. That’s why one of our directors, Jon, thought what better way than to combine fun and food by hosting a summer bake off.

 

Yesterday afternoon five staff members rustled up seven cakes between them that were all unique in both appearance and taste. What a lovely lunchtime treat for the rest of the team, eh?

 

The competition was split into two categories:

 

Tastiest

 

Joint Second Place: Grahame from Bureau with his sultana cake and Andy from Quality Assurance (QA) with his “Indulgence”.
