The Great Office Bake Off

Here at The Kings Ferry we love The Great British Bake Off. We love it so much so that we decided to hold our own ‘Great Office Bake Off’.

After enlisting the help of the team, we created our own awesome promotional video on-board our VIP coach and the #GOBO Challenge was born. 
 

The #GOBO Challenge

We challenge other companies around the UK to take part in the Great Office Bake Off and to show us their best bakes. With the likes of National Express and Waterstones already getting involved, there’s still time to share your office’s bakes. 
 
To be part of the challenge, all we ask is that you use the #GOBO and tag us in so we can see your delicious creations.
 

Vote for Your Star Baker

As if we could settle for a bake off video, every Friday staff at The Kings Ferry bake that week’s theme. We’re not sure about everyone else but in this office we are fuelled by cake and sugar!
 
It’s then up to our fantastic followers to vote for their favourite on our Facebook page and crown the weeks’ Star Baker.
 
Let’s take a look at the entries so far…

Entries...

 
We only had one baker this week, Vikki. 
 
Vikki’s duo of Banoffee Pies went down extremely well in the office, but she’s not giving the recipe away as it’s a family secret. As no one else in the office volunteered for Dairy Week, we had to improvise and find a fake image of a cheesecake.
