Great Brownie Bake Off!

As part of a fundraising initiative and to earn their Hostess badge, Tattenhall Brownies recently held a 'Great Brownie Bake Off', complete with homemade aprons, bunting and tablecloths! The Brownies designed everything from the decor to the entertainment as well as baking some truly magnificent cakes. They also hosted the event, ensuring that their guests were well looked after, serving them coffee and cake all night!

In true Bake-Off style, there were different categories that the cakes could be judged by and these were 'Best Taste', 'Best Decorated' and 'Most Unique'. However, this would require the skill and expertise of some knowledgeable judges so the obvious choice was to ask ladies of the Tattenhall WI. They had the very difficult job of tasting over 30 cakes and breads and the 3 judges all remarked on how impressed they were with the extremely high quality and standards of the bakes.

The parents and Brownies were also honoured and fascinated to hear from Pat Reynolds, a member of the WI but also leader of Tattenhall Brownies for 25 years! Not only had she been a Brownie herself in the 1940's but she then became a leader in this village.

After the event, Louise Gibson, leader of Tattenhall Brownies, said: "I cannot thank the members of Tattenhall WI enough for attending our Brownie Bake-Off. I know the parents were extremely pleased to have such wonderful 'judges' and the Brownies were all even more enthusiastic to try and impress them. I was also extremely touched at the thought and consideration that each 'judge' gave to all 30 cakes!!! It was an extremely difficult task to judge and they did it so wonderfully.
It was so lovely to have 2 female-only village groups come together for a special event, especially when it is two different generations who can share their skills and knowledge with each other. What a wonderful opportunity for our Brownies! We were extremely thrilled and honoured and I really hope that Tattenhall Brownies and the WI can work together again in the near future".
