Tollers Christmas Bake Off 2019

Date Added 10.01.20

On Monday 2nd December, Tollers marked the beginning of Christmas festivities with the annual Christmas Bake Off in aid of our Charity of the Year, Secondary 1st. Secondary 1st is a charity, based in London, which funds research into the prevention, diagnosis and causes of secondary breast cancer.

To raise money for this brilliant cause, staff in our Northampton, Milton Keynes and Corby offices took to their kitchens, lined their baking tins, and created some festive tasty treats.  This year came with a fantastic turnout and fierce competition, with chocolate brownies, ginger cupcakes and snowball cheesecakes being amongst the bakes!

Once all the bakes were lined up (and a few hours had passed for those who did not fancy cake for breakfast), the judging began with the bakes being scored on several different categories, including creativity, taste and festiveness. Once the judging was complete, there was a bake sale where staff could enjoy the festive treats, with all donations going to Secondary 1st. Needless to say, there were some pretty full plates coming out of the kitchen that day so that everyone could try as many different bakes as possible.

That afternoon, the first round of winners were announced. In our Northampton Office, conveyancing assistant Alex Gill took the crown by a measly half a point! In Milton Keynes, personal assistant Claire Davies won with her delicious brownies, and one of our newest trainee solicitors Emma Blacow satisfied the judge’s chocolate cravings with her chocoholic crispy cakes in Corby.

The scoresheets and photos were then compared by our independent committee, who were delighted to announce today that our Bake Off 2019 winner is Alex Gill! She now takes the coveted Bake Off trophy and is already making plans for next year in an attempt to retain her title.

We hope you enjoy the wonderful photos of the bakes from this year and cannot wait to see our bakers’ creations next December!
