Millie’s parents, who had been supporting her as chief tasters when she practised at home and had been eating a lot of cakes, were there to see her receive her prize.

There was double success when title of Star Baker for the guide section was awarded to Chloe who wowed the judges with her chocolate owl cake.

Chloe thought a brown owl would be good as it reminded her of her time as Brownie.
