RGB showroom bake-off event takes the cake

Published:  12 May, 2017

To celebrate the first anniversary of The Room Works, a kitchen and bathroom showroom from RGB Building Supplies based in Exeter battled it out with Exeter City FC and the Exeter Chiefs rugby team during a charity bake-off on 4 May.

Following the players’ first head to head at a cook-off to celebrate the launch of the showroom in May 2016 – which was deemed a draw – the players once again came together with both teams determined to outdo the other.

Under the watchful eye of Debbie Vanstone from Exeter-based Mad Cakes, the competitors were challenged to make cupcakes, meringues and 15 equally-sized scones, as well as to cover and decorate a cake.

It was a close-fought match, but the Chiefs were slightly ahead going into the final judging with 25.5 points against City’s 25. The football team eased into the lead when their decorated cake received the highest score meaning Exeter City took the trophy.

Paul West, branch manager at RGB Building Supplies Exeter, said: “A huge thank you to both sets of players for returning and once again going head to head – congratulations to Exeter City FC for being crowned the superior bakers. It was a great evening to mark The Room Works’ first anniversary and we wish both teams all the very best for the remainder of their seasons. We held the event to say a big thank you to our customers who have helped to establish The Room Works and make its first year of trading a huge success.”
