Cake Monday 10th December

We race (electronically) and the loser has to bake a cake to feed the office. 
Why? because we like cake.
Who? everyone in the office. No one gets out of it.
When? every Monday.
The rules: you make the cake yourself, without any help. You can't 'repeat' a cake. Your cake will be judged on presentation, difficulty and taste, and marked out of 10 by each colleague.

'Pizza Cake' by Adam. Compilation: pizza base (plain sponge), tomato paste (strawberry jam), with a ham (strawberry sweets), olive (raisins), and pepperoni topping (dyed fizzy strawberry laces), not forgetting extra cheese (white chocolate shavings). A first-ever cake for Adam, he billed the process as 'very stressful'. Using YouTube as his recipe/trainer, the creation involved several visits to the shops, a visit to his neighbour for equipment, and 3 hours of his life. He has vowed never to make a cake again. Considering a soup blender was used, the taste of the cake surprised us (and Adam). 

The verdict: positives included, superb effort, tasted good, and very original. Its rise and density were questioned as were its dryness, and topping flavour combination.

Pizza Cake Average Score: 6

Next week: Georgina again. She's not happy.
