The Great YAC Bake Off!

Hi everyone. I’m sure you all remember back in July we asked for club members to bake cakes to sell at the launch of the Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology at Jewry Wall. It was a fantastic day. We really managed to ‘Bring Our Past to Life’ and a big thank you to all who baked and attended the event.

A little out of his depth, YAC leader Mathew found himself compering a fashion-show through the ages!

The aim of our Great YAC Bake Off was to raise money for the Dig Deep For YAC campaign and I am pleased to announce we raised £104.50 from our cake sale.

We were really impressed with everyone’s contributions and it was really really hard to pick a winner. We had everything from castle-shaped sponges, medieval floor tile rice-crispy cakes, chocolate brownie excavations and ginger loaf cake graves!

As none of the Club leaders could choose between such fantastic cakes we recruited a celebrity judge, Dr Richard Buckley from the University of Leicester (the archaeologist who lead the search for Richard III), who choose this fantastic amazing archaeological excavation cake. Congratulations to Reuben Cullup, our YAC Master Baker 2016!
