On Your Marks, Get Set, BAKE

With The Great British Bake Off drawing to a close we decided to have some of our own fun in the Elmore kitchens this week...

In true bake off spirit, Team E got to work creating some truly show stopping pastries, ready to fall under the scrutiny of our very own Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.

All the Elmore eclairs

With Elmore Éclairs on the menu, the creativity was in full flow. 7 interpretations of the choux pastry, cream filled, chocolate smothered, tasty treats were presented to our judges, Anselm (Paul) and Sarah Guise (Prue) 

Anselm and Sarah were the judges

Cue the Choux

Crème Patisserie, flavoured with booze, fruit, coffee and vanilla oozed out from little (and large) fingers. Elmore swans, hot dogs, and pink delights. The variation was sensational!

And The Winner is...?

It was Lydia who was crowned Star Baker with her mango, raspberry, white chocolate swan! Well Done Lydia. 

The Elmore swan took the biscuit

Love, Team E
