The competition was judged by Kate Weare, head chef at Café Twit at The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, in High Street, Great Missenden, Janice Benson and Elizabeth Webster of Great Missenden Women’s Institute and Eva Neupauer-Jones, general manager of Missenden Abbey.
Mrs Neupauer-Jones said: “The bake-off and the coffee morning all went extremely well and it was a tough decision but the winners definitely deserved their medals.” SIXTH formers baked cakes to sell for Macmillan.
