Drinks Forfeit

Our office Christmas Party is in a month's time. We have got a 'hot drinks' tally chart going on within the office at the moment. The person who has made the least number of rounds of hot drinks for their lovely colleagues will face a forfeit at the Christmas do. The question is, what should the forfeit be??....

Cake Monday 4th November

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? 1st Monday of the month.
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.

'Chocolate & Orange Marble Cake' by Rosie. This cake involved splitting the batter into two bowls and flavouring one with chocolate and the other with orange. The batters are then lightly swirled together to create the marbling effect. The cake was then topped with melted chocolate. 

The Verdict: this cake turned out to be a hot favourite with many colleagues. We liked the ripple, the taste, the presentation as well as the light, but moist texture. A good bake!!

'Chocolate & Orange Marble Cake' Average Score: 7.8

Next time: Teresa. 3 bakes and you're out of the competition for several months. This will be Teresa's 3rd bake and as she's already top of the Leader Board, her 3rd bake will indicate her psyche - will she not bother because she's already reached the top, or will she aim to increase upon her high score??? I know which avenue certain colleagues would take!
