Cakes of all shapes and sizes demonstrated the sweet side of local professionals when they competed in a baking competition to raise money for charity.
Hosting their second Great Legal Bake, St Albans firm, Rayden Solicitors, urged staff and other professionals to don their aprons and produce cakes to compete in two categories - best tasting and best looking.
And it was a gravity-defying Maltesers cake made by Rebecca Potton of Myers Clark Chartered Accountants that was judged the best looking with second place in the category going to last year’s winner Cherry Choudhury of City Lawyers.
Best tasting cake went to Raydens managing partner, Nadia Biles Davies, for her orange and poppy seed muffins.
Other popular cakes were Katherine Rayden’s Coffee Berry Crumble and a Guinness Cake, complete with Guinness beer bottle, from Wagada’s Cheryl Luzet.
