Competition Closed: The Great G&H Bake-Off

By Wednesday, September 7, 2016 6 0

Nice buns, readers!


Our GBBO competition is now closed, and we’re pleased to announce that it gave us a lot of food for thought in picking our winners. We really saw some absolute masterpieces from our entrants, as well as some things which we wish we could forget, so we think the competition was a resounding success! As much as we had plenty of works of art and god-awful disasters submitted, there can only be a handful of winners!

The Runners-Up

We’ve decided to honour a runner-up for each of the two categories, for a creation that didn’t quite make the cut, but certainly deserves to be mentioned here. Our first runner-up is our runner-up of The Best category, Rachel Curley!


One of my best bakes, a garden themed birthday cake for my granddad x

And to completely ruin your appetite for that deliciously indulgent chocolate cake, here’s our runner-up of The Worst category, Elizabeth Gurney!


“So I tried to bake individual chocolate pretzels… everyone laughed when I brought it through! Yeah doesn’t look that appealing… #fail”

Both of our runners-up have won themselves a £10 voucher to spend at G&HD!

The Winners

Now for the winners of our competition, who have both won the grand prize of a £50 voucher for G&HD! Firstly, the winner of The Worst, with a truly horrifying rainbow cake, is Sharon Curran!


I’d been telling my husband I really wanted a rainbow cake for my birthday and imagine my face when he surprised me with this. I’m not really sure how I can describe it. It was certainly very moist! I did give him some marks for nice decoration but the cake itself needed a bit of work.

Needless to say nobody wanted to try a slice of it.

Yeah, I wouldn’t try a slice, either.

Finally, the Grand Prize winner of The Best category is Charlie Brunton!


I made this for my partners birthday this year! Chocolate heaven!

We’d like to thank all of our competition entrants, and we hope you’ll continue to enter our great competitions here on Love Your Garden. For all the latest updates from Gardens & Homes Direct, including special offers, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Google+, and sign up for e-mail updates using the box at the top of this page.

    Auch wenn jetzt ein Aufschrei durch die Gemeinde geht, ich hab mein MacBook bei Saturn gekauft.1080€ statt 1299€ und über 24 Monate zinslos finanziert. Die 45€ im Monat gehen im Haushalt unter und man muß nicht gleich 1000€ raustun.Möge Apple geben, dass ich keine Probleme mit dem Gerät bekomme.

    मी “मी”शी सहमत आहेच. पण माझा मुद्दा जी लोक मसुदा तयार करण्यासाठी कागदावर कागद फाडून फेकतात त्यांच्या साठी आहे. एखादा लेख लिहितांना किंवा कविता लिहितांना कागद फाडतो ना तसा. शेवटी अर्थ एकाच होतो की पेपर वाचणे ही सोडता येत नाही आणि झाड ही वाचविता येत नाही. गोळा बेरीज शेवटी एकचहोते.

    Drew,Fine work. As a father of two girls I too wish my day would go something like this, but I will probably end up doing some menial housework that no man should do…I miss the good ol days when you could tell your wife to do the damn dishes and don’t give me no lip or else she’ll taste the pimp hand. Nowadays that type of behaviour is frowned upon and I’m the bad guy if something like that happens. Can’t figure it out man..shit is crazy for realz!!!

    It’s not sifcnginait to me. I’m more bothered by the fact that DL Hughley went on Leno and called the Rutgers players nappy headed and ho’s and saying they were some of the ugliest women he’d ever seen. This is what I mean about priorities. Together with the colored men from the “Black Men Revealed” program over at TV One, we have “revealed” some fairly serious issues that some black men have about black women.
