The Great British Barnes Bake Off Charity Event!

On Saturday Putney Bake Club came together with other Bakers from the local area to take part in ‘The White Hearts’ very own Bake off. We placed our bakes down behind the relevant category under the watchful eye of the award winning master Patissier Eric Lanlard!! Yes you read it correctly! The King of Pastries and Bakes himself!

Over-looking the beautiful River we awaited the results! And low and behold TWO of our members won 1st Place for their bakes!

The categories for this Bake Off were:

  • Barnes Beauty (A cake all about Barnes)
  • Victoria Sponge
  • Perfect Pastry
  • Cupcake Creation
  • Tempting Traybake
  • Loaf Cakes
  • Bread
  • Biscuits
  • Juniors aged 7-11
  • Juniors aged 12-16

Jane – 1st Place for, I quote Eric ‘Fluffy, light, I want the recipe’ Cupcakes

Here is Jane being presented with her prize for her Amazing Pineapple, lime and coconut; and chocolate, coconut and coffee cupcakes.



“Oh my, it was overwhelming to be given the award for best overall taste and really unexpected!! And from Eric Lanlard – tremendous! What a great guy to dedicate his time to support local events like this. Bravo to White Hart Barnes for organising and to you for letting us know of this competition. This is something I’ll treasure for a long, long time!”

Olivia – 1st Place for ‘Creative and delicious’ Biscuits


Here are some of the other bakes on the day. How yummy do they all look and ever so professional?!


Well Done ladies we were very proud of your efforts and you should be too! Also Well Done to all of you who entered everyones bakes looked scrummy! But more importantly we raised money for ‘St Christopher’s Fellowship’.
