A woman from Gawcott is celebrating after winning a national cake baking competition.
Lisa Adams, who runs Lisa Adams Cakes, took the top prize in the competition run by the magazine Cake Decorating & Sugarcraft.
Lisa won the competition with her cake ‘vegetable still life.’
She said: “I had never entered a cake competition before.
“I have been making cakes for eight years, and decided to enter a competition for the first time this year.
“I was only aware of the competition a day before it closed so I literally opened the fridge door and saw I had ingredients like peppers and onions in there and set about making them into a cake.
“The red pepper is a lemon drizzle cake, the onions are red velvet cake and the other designs are icing balls.”
Lisa won an array of culinary prizes as part of the competition including a multi-cutter, a cake steamer and a baking tin.
She said: “When I sent the entry through to the magazine they wanted confirmation it was actually a cake because they could not believe it!
“As part of the competition I had to send a minimum of 20 photos of different stages of the process.
“I also sent a photo showing the cake cut open.
“I was very apprehensive about entering a competition for the first time because you are putting your work out to be judged.
“When I found out I had won I screamed with delight - it was totally unexpected!
“The next thing I would like to do is enter an international baking competition but because I have so much work on I want to see if my other commitments allow me the time.”
