For those who don't know who I am well, I am the head baker at the WHITE GABLES ;) I am also good at a few other things than baking cakes and breads like writing and taking photos for example.
This is my behind the scenes account of the well advertised and anticipated event on the 29th of May 2016 at Enjoy From White Gables in Moycullen, Co Galway, Ireland
I did not take direct part in the Bake Off as was originally planned (being a judge) but they managed to squeeze me into the advertising material against my better judgement ;) Usually I avoid being in photos, I am more into taking the photos myself.
Here are the fabulous shots taken by Martina Regan Photography and cunningly organised and distributed by Lisa Regan Public Relations. The photos dominated all the papers during May for weeks!! People kept saying to me "I saw you in the papers, you are famous!!" Thanks, Martina :) Thanks Lisa!!!
This is me with my co-coworkers Cathal, Sandra and Lenka
We had some really fantastic judges and they had a very enjoyable time I think, every forkful of it!!
We had David Walsh, head Pastry Chef and Baker @ Rolys Bistro, food blogger Cathal MacBride from Glass of Red Wine and of course Dara Devaney, TV & Film Actor and IFTA Award winner.
Now I want to show you some of the fabulous cake entries that I managed to snap on the day of the big judging!!
I think everyone that showed up on the day had fun and a full belly after!! The atmosphere was pretty tense at some point but then again the first prize was really outstanding!!
