The oven gloves came off when legal eagles and local businesses competed to show their culinary skills.

The Great Legal Bake Off, hosted by St Albans family law firm, Rayden Solicitors, was a light-hearted competition in which bakers from the business community demonstrated their cake-making abilities.

Cherry Choudhury from City Lawyers in St Albans took the prize for best-looking cake with seven red cupcake roses wrapped as a bouquet while

Alexander Taberner from Modality took home best-tasting cake with a light and flavoursome orange curd cake.

Janice Bissett from private catering company, The Chef’s Friend, judged entries in the two categories. Wooden spoons and vouchers donated by The Pudding Stop were awarded to the winners.

Over £300 was raised for the Eastern Legal Trust and Rayden Solicitors’ Charity of the Year, the Harpenden Children’s Contact Centre.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
