The Mill create Great British bake off showstopper!

To mark pastry week on the Great British Bake off, our chefs at The Mill have created their very own show stopper, for our patients in day therapy to enjoy.

The hit BBC One series gives contestants each week the challenge of creating a show stopping cake aimed to wow the judges and audiences at home – so The Mill thought they’d try their hand at creating their own with a ‘Croquembouche’ masterpiece.

The towering dessert, which took in total four hours to complete was mounted in profiteroles that were filled with crème patissiere, coated in caramel, with decorations made with boiled sugar.

Nurses, volunteers and patients from day therapy gave it a try, and all voiced their approval for the delicious dessert!

If you’d like your very own show-stopper – perhaps for your special event, party or just for your own pleasure, – The Mill can make it for you! Email: or call: 01772 695277 to inquire.
