World Cup Cook Off!

Once again we have been stuffing our faces at Maximiles HQ! This time it’s all in aid of the world cup.

You may already be aware we love a bake off. Well, in true spirit of the World Cup 2014 we decided to have a cook off this week. Those keen to take part were given a country (participating in the World Cup of course) & asked to produce a dish to represent their country.

We have included a couple of photos of our favourites & of course the winner who was Jamie (Assistant Accountant) with his very accurately measured & perfectly presented ‘Alfajores’ from Argentina (for those of you scratching your heads they are two round, sweet biscuits joined together with mousse, dulce de leche or jam)! World Cup Cook Off Alfajores

Other entries included Craig’s Du pain, Du Vin, Du Boursin (or Bread, Wine and Cheese) for France! Bending the rules slightly with this shop bought bundle of treats but we certainly enjoyed them. World Cup Cook Off France

A vibrant creation for Germany with Steve’s ‘Erdbeertorte’ (A Strawberry pie) World Cup Cook Off Erdbeertorte

Last but not least, some fabulous ‘Portuguese Tarts’ from Amy (bit like an egg custard). World Cup Cook Off Portuguese Tarts2

The Little Maximiles Bake Off

We all love & miss the popular TV series ‘The Great British Bake Off’ & June seems just too far away!

Here at Maximiles we also love a bake off & this time we decided to set a challenge themed absolutely fabulous cakes. We have been taking the judging very seriously & stuffing our faces with sweet treats all day!

With a total of six entries this morning including; mojito cakes, macarons, rosemary & lemon shortbread, tingle cupcakes, Victoria sponge & Reese’s pieces baked cheesecake we were spoilt for choice.

It was a close call… The winner for the best looking bake goes to Amy (Media Director) for her fabulous "Tim themed" macarons.
