Cake Monday 3rd 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.

'Cupcake surprise' by Georgina. The surprise being jam in the middle. Otherwise your regular cupcake decorated with flowers and butterflies (handmade). 

The verdict: mixed results. Tasted good and the jam was appreciated. BUT.....size and originality was an issue for most. There needs to be more cake, and the judges were looking for something more unique and less "Waitrose-style bakery". Semantics were raised, 'cake Monday' means A cake.

Cupcake Surprise Average Score: 8
Next week: Adam. He cooks, but has never made a cake. He tried to get out of it by 'accidentally' booking Monday as holiday. The request was rejected.
