The Great Nottingham Bake-off

January 30th, 2013

Naughty but nice…. there weren’t many of these delicious cakes left after The Great Nottingham Bake-off, an event organised by the University’s Women’s Staff  Network.

Both male and female members of staff were invited to share homemade cakes at the lunchtime event, which was held in the Helmsley Building on University Park.

Three judges — Karen Attwood, a former University employee and founder of Classy Cupcakes and Posh Patisserie, Maria Wilson, a graduate trainee and founder of Whips Cupcakes, and Sam, from The Cake Decorating Company — had the enviable task of assessing the delicious offerings.

Tammy Greeno, Graduate School events and marketing manager, was the overall winner with her white-iced cake with snowman macaroon.

Altogether around 30 members of staff brought cakes. One person told the organisers: “Thanks for organising the Great Nottingham Bake-off — it was really nice change for a lunchtime.”

As well as organising events and guest speakers where members of staff can meet socially, the Women’s Staff Network acts as an informal forum for debate and raising awareness of issues that affect all staff.
