London, December 2016. Staff at Virtual1 have been busy baking; with the chance to impress a panel of judges to win the inaugural Virtual1 Bake Off challenge.
With over 30 entries, the judge’s palettes were challenged with both savoury and sweet delights.
“Its great to see the baking talents within the team, with so many staff getting involved in the fun whilst raising money for Restless Development, Virtual1’s nominated charity partner”, said Tom O’Hagan, CEO at Virtual1.
Among the strong entries were focaccia bread, cheesecakes and millionaires shortbread. The winning entry was baked by Abby Dempster with her vanilla cheesecake.
“The cheesecake was amazing and beautifully presented. I’ve loved every minute of this challenge. It was so hard to choose the winning entry but I had a great time being part of the tasting and judging panel”, said James Hickman, Virtual1 CTO.
As part of the event all the entries were sold in the foyer of AlphaBeta, where Virtual1 is based, raising in excess of £500 for Restless Development a global agency for youth-led development.
