The Great Gravitas Bake Off!

The Great Gravitas Bake Off!

Friday 27th September was Macmillan’s annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, and to celebrate, all our UK offices took part by throwing a big office cake sale and dress down day. Welcome, to the Great Gravitas Bake Off!


A group of budding Gravitonian bakers in each office volunteered to cook up some delicious baked goods in aid of Macmillan’s amazing work supporting cancer patients and their families. As recruiters, we love to get competitive, so our Gravitonians would be competing to win the coveted Best Cake Award and be crowned Gravitas star baker in the Great Gravitas Bake Off.


Inspecting the cakes was our team of judges (below), ready to spot soggy bottoms and identify the Mary Berry’s among us.

In Manchester, the joint star bakers were Charlie and Parul, both winning best cake and best effort: Charlie for his Biscoff Traybake (below right) and Parul for her Biscoff cupcakes (below left). Biscoff was certainly the theme of the day in Manchester!
