Kelsall Steele Bake Off – Week 5

After five weeks of wonderful delights, we have finally crowned a winner of the Kelsall Steele Bake Off. This week we were treated to absolutely delicious tiered cakes and decorated cupcakes. The scoring has been kept secret until today when we held a presentation ceremony naming the winners.

First place was Kat Bryant, second place Hayley Faro and third place was Melissa Best but we must say a massive thank you to all the bakers who put in so much effort each week. We managed to raise £200 for the RCHT Delivery Suite and Neo-Natal Unit but you can still donate by going to: www.justgiving.com/Melissa-Best/

The Great Kelsall Steele Bake Off

The Bake Off!

During September, Kelsall Steele’s keen bakers will be going head to head in their very own ‘Bake Off‘ to find out who’s the best! The aim of the competition, besides creating lots of delicious cakes, is to raise funds for Royal Cornwall Hospital’s Neo-Natal Unit.

Starting on the 1st September, the bakers will bring in their creations, according to the theme of the week, to be judged by the rest of the lucky Kelsall Steele staff!

The themes for each week’s creations are set out below:

If you’d like to keep up to date with what our budding bakers create each week, and who came out on top then make sure you follow our Facebook page where we will be posting photos and updates as the weeks progress.

The Charity

The bake off has been organised by Melissa Best, a Corporate Senior here at Kelsall Steele. Her chosen charity, the Delivery Suite and Neo-Natal Unit at Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske is one close to her heart. Both her son, who was born 25 weeks early, and daughter who was 6 weeks early, having received care in the Neo-Natal unit.

Melissa said “My son was born weighing just 1 lb 9 oz, and was small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.  He is one of the many extreme premature babies born at Treliske.  My daughter thankfully was born much later, only 6 weeks early.  I consider myself very lucky to have them.  I would like to raise this money to help make the situation easier in any way, big or small, for either the babies or their family at the hospital.

I am very thankful for your donations, no matter how small. “
