Bents: The search is on for the perfect birthday bake
Every good birthday needs a cake and an 80th anniversary is definitely an occasion which requires something a little bit special.? Which is why Bents Garden & Home is on the hunt for the perfect birthday bake to help celebrate its 80th year in business and is inviting customers to submit their favourite cake recipes as part of a truly tasty competition.
The winner, who will be chosen by Bents? team of bakers and patissiers, will be invited to the Centre to work with the team to create their winning recipe, which will feature as the Restaurant?s bake of the month throughout July. They will have the opportunity to work directly with an award-winning team to see their recipe take centre stage and become a mouth-watering reality.
Says Tony Lewis, food development Chef at The Fresh Approach Restaurant:? ?We are looking for a classic recipe that is full of flavour and detail.? Maybe something that is a family favourite and has been handed down from generation to generation. We?re very exciting about receiving the recipes and I?ve got a feeling it will be a difficult task to choose a winner.?
The closing date for the 80th Birthday Bake is Friday 9?June with the winner announced on Thursday 15.? Entrants must be available between 19?and 30?June to come in store to create their winning bake. ?Entry forms are available from Customer Services and online at bents.co.uk.
2017 is a year of celebration for Bents Garden & Home as the family owned and run business marks its 80th anniversary; 80 years since Alfred and Margaret Bent started to sell roses from the front garden of their small terrace house, marking the start of what would be a very special journey.
The 80th Birthday Bake is just one of the celebrations planned for the year which is full of seasonal surprises and random acts of kindness planned to commemorate this impressive milestone, all anchored by a family fun weekend planned for the weekend of 7- 9?July.
