Last Sunday we had a magnificent time on the judging panel for the Great Manchester Bake Off at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival in Albert Square. We narrowed down our search for Manchester's best amateur baker from 30 to just 1, all baker's created 'Manchester inspired' bakes for us to taste and judge. Celebrity judge Richard Burr of The Great Brtish Bake Off fame hosted a fabulous demonstration, and announced the winner as Francine Conway who blew us away with her Stone Roses inspired lemon cake. Well done girl! She'll be happily munching on her Barbakan hamper right now!
