Kyleigh Pearson from Priory Court Care Home in Burnham-On-Sea has been crowned the winner of Country Court’s inaugural Bake Off for her gin & tonic cake.

Chefs in the Country Court group competed in the final, which was held at the Rational AG development kitchen in Luton. Care home chefs went head to head in an eight hour cake baking competition to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.

Anwar Kajee, head of hospitality at Country Court, said: “Huge congratulations to Kyleigh for her fabulous cake. We are very proud of our chefs here at Country Court and keen to showcase their talents. The competition was very close with some truly impressive baking from all the participants. It was wonderful to hear how impressed the judges were, not only with the baking but with the innovative skills on show.”

The winner was selected by a team of judges including Claire Clark who appeared as a judge in the first series of BBC’s Bake Off: Crème de la Crème.

Alykhan Kachra, co-chief executive at Country Court, added: “The cakes our chefs created are truly impressive. The high standards of hospitality we provide for our residents is something we are passionate about here at Country Court. This has been a wonderful opportunity to show off the cakes our residents enjoyed marking the Queen’s 70th Jubilee and at their weekend street party celebrations.”
