The Ginny’s Team hosted the first ever Ginny’s Team Baking Battles on Thursday, July 21.  Three bakers, Brigitte, Tammy and Jacqui, were all required to make a cake incorporating their favorite frozen summer treat.

Brigitte loves a really good vanilla ice cream in the summer and strawberries year round. She made a three cakes with pureed strawberries in the batter and layered them with vanilla ice cream and frosted with a butter cream frosting.

 

Tammy’s favorite treat is a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup, especially frozen in the summer.  She made a Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cheesecake with a chocolate cake base.

 

Jacqui has a sweet tooth, so she naturally loves Dulce de Leche Ice Cream.  She made a Dulce de Leche Cheesecake served on a plate drizzled with caramel.

 

All three cakes were absolutely delicious and all three bakers were so creative. The judges made comments like:

-“Delicious! I love simple things – and this was simply delicious.”

-“It looked really professional.”

-“Smooth, creamy taste.”

 

Drum roll please…

The winner of Ginny’s Team Baking Battles, Round One – Cakes is ….

Tammy and her Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cheesecake with a chocolate cake base.
