The youngest of the young ladies at school, who go to Cupcake Club, asked me to judge their rainbow cupcakes …… I felt immensely honoured …. and was determined to carry out the task with all due and robust diligence.There were five cakes in all to be evaluated …..
……but I thank goodness they had been cut into four, because although I have a hearty appetite for “the cup cake” …… to eat five whole ones in quick succession would have certainly overloaded my digestive tract.
I judged each cake by how they filled the cake case, the separation of the individual colours, sponginess and most importantly nom nom nominess.
In the end I selected cake No.4 as my cup cake of choice, which I described as “Sooooooo light and fluffy, as if created by angels in the kitchens of heaven” ….. I may have over egged my description a little, but it did get a rapturous round of applause ….. and I think I may be asked to judge at Cupcake Club again. Perhaps someone from the BBC will read this and see that I could have the potential to be a most excellent “guest” judge on the Great British Bake Off, you never know!!
