The Great Denby Cake Off 2015

Way back in August while doing #bakeofflovelies the opportunity came up to enter the annual Great Denby Cake off.
As a huge fan of the Denby range (and of cake of course) I had to enter this lovely competition.
Although not cake I decided to enter my Salted Caramel and cardamom biscuits which went down a treat with afternoon tea.
I never expected to be in with a chance amongst so many brilliant bakers out there so when I got an email from Denby in November to say I had come in second place I was thrilled!

It was such a lovely surprise and really picked me up after having a rough couple of months.

I have always loved Denby ware; my mum was a collector so it has always been something which reminded me of tea times at home. I love its classical designs and earthy colours which seem to look right at home anywhere.
 having said that I didn't realise that Denby also do a beautiful selection of metal bake-ware;
So when a huge box arrived with my competition prize in I couldn't wait to get acquainted with the collection and I really wasn't disappointed.

The ultimate baking set I received is stunning-
each piece came in a beautiful rose gold colour which I just love.
The set included a madeline tray, cupcake tray, loaf tin, roasting tray and fluted cake tray.

Although I bake a lot I have never used great quality tins so these are such a treat to have;
they are exactly what you would expect from Denby in terms of design and standard.
They are heavier and thicker than normal tins and have these great silicone handles which is extremely helpful if you're prone to oven burns from hot cake tins..!

The non stick coating is great especially for baking intricate cakes like madelines- and makes for very easy cleaning which is always a bonus.

This has turned into more of a review but I just love my new cake tins and I'm so grateful to Denby for the opportunity to enter and the lovely judges for picking my recipe.

I'd also like to say a big belated congratulations to Hannah for winning a very well deserved first place with her amazing chocolate cake and to Rebecca who came third with her adorable courgette and sunflower bee cakes 

If you have a minute head over to Denby and have a look through their gorgeous cake tins-
I can't wait to get baking in mine!
