Franke has named the winner of its ‘My Wonderful Bakes’ social media competition, which launched alongside the company’s annual Blooming Great Tea Party that saw more than 80 More in Store retailers host tea parties to raise funds for Marie Curie.

Mel Crumpton from Benfleet in Essex has won afternoon tea for two at The Dorchester in London for her fresh fruit-topped Victoria sponge cake with homemade jam, pictured.

“I’m delighted to have won the prize of afternoon tea in Franke’s recent competition with my version of a Victoria sponge cake,” Crumpton said. “I will be taking my mum Linda with me, as she taught me everything I know about baking and we are both really looking forward to a wonderful experience at The Dorchester.”

Franke’s ‘My Wonderful Bakes’ competition ran on Facebook and Twitter to encourage novice bakers to “come up with their own take on the Victoria sponge, or to come up with their own baking creation”.

Franke communications manager Jeanette Ward said: “We were impressed by the number of entries we had for the My Wonderful Bakes competition which was a way of engaging the general public with our Blooming Great Tea Party. Mel’s entry stood out because of her unique twist on the classic Victoria sponge. We hope she enjoys someone else’s baking with her prize of afternoon tea for two.”
