WHEN it comes to winning awards, talented Sarah Carr truly can have her cake and eat it.
The Bramley Village Bakery confectioner has once again won a national competition – picking up a gold award for the third time.
Sarah, 47, who has been creating cakes for the last 19 years, is celebrating a triple triumph in the novelty class at the Squires Kitchen International Cake Show.
Such is her incredible success that Sarah has now been barred from entering the novelty class again.
Sarah, from Abbey Road, Popley, Basingstoke, took around two weeks to create the incredible cake, which she made in between her work at the bakery and for her own home-based cake making business, Sarah Carr’s Speciality Cakes.
This year’s theme was based around sport, and Sarah created a sports bag filled with rackets, balls and sporting equipment to create an entirely edible structure.
Sarah said: “I spent longer thinking about it and planning the cake than I did actually making the cake.
“I couldn’t believe it when I found out I had won again. I was absolutely delighted. I will still be able to enter other competitions, which I plan to do. It’s something I really enjoy.”
Sarah has donated the cake to a charity raffle, which will be held for staff National Policing Improvement Agency, Bramshill, by Walter Chapman, security and reception servi-ces manager at the agency, to raise money for a breast cancer charity.
