For the very few of you who are interested (Peter and Lulu) I lost. It was close but I blew it
I did lose to the doyenne of cake club the very talented Tanya who came in with an incredible confection of chocolate cake and frilly knicker type icing in pink and white.
It was amazing but I did have a few people tell me that whilst mine was a bit 'rustic' looking it tasted pretty good .... maybe if the balance of voters had been a bit more biased towards blokes I might have fared better.
Still it means that I can now focus on tasting and voting rather than cooking and sweating about getting it to the office in one piece!
