This year’s final judging to chose the winner of the FAIR trophy could have been seen as the battle of the carrot cakes!’ said Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, editor of Foods Matter and chair of the judges. ‘Excellent though many of the other category winners were, it was the joint winners of the Cake, muffin and sweet biscuit category that stood out.’
Although both cakes (The Gluten Free Kitchen and The Healthy Cake Company) were ‘moist, light, tasty and very home made’, as well as being both gluten/wheat and dairy free, the Healthy Cake Company’s organic Carrot and Raisin Cake won on its looks and on its delicious, not over-sweet icing.
Gluten-eating carrot-cake lovers among the judges agreed that you would never have known that this carrot cake was ‘free-of’ anything at all and they would have been very happy to be offered it on any occasion.
‘We were delighted that the Healthy Cake Company had gone the extra mile’ said Michelle ‘to make the cake dairy free as well as gluten free. There is currently a trend amongst manufacturers of gluten-free products to add small amounts of dairy to previously gluten and dairy-free products, which is enormously frustrating for the many people who are intolerant of both. That the cake was also organic was just an extra bonus.’
