New Zealand’s Greatest Cake!
After an eight week search New Zealand’s Greatest Cake has been found – in Auckland.
Baking website ‘Blokes Who Bake’ has been running a national competition to find our favorite gastonomic treat. It was decided by votes only, and having tallied hundreds from Whangarei to Dunedin, the winner is: the Chocolate Whisky cake made by Rocket Kitchen in Auckland.
Production manager Derek Oud says the tactics were fairly simple. “We have a mailer that goes out by email and we asked our clients to go online and vote.”
The enthusiasm of Rocket Kitchen’s customers was obvious, ‘The best in town’ and ‘Can’t be beaten’ were comments received by the judges.
Prizes include 100kg of Champion Flour, an online and radio advertising budget and a case of wine. All voting was done through www.blokeswhobake.co.nz.
Some of the more interesting cakes that received votes included a chocolate lamington from Wellington, a gluten free ‘ceramic orange’ cake from Wanganui and any number of carrot cakes from bakeries all over New Zealand.
