Anne Harrison, Chair of the WI’s Denman College baking cakes at home in North Yorkshire using a competition winning recipe. See SWNS story SWCAKES: The Women’s Institute is whipping up a storm after two members chosen to bake fruit cake for the annual conference were BANNED from serving them by the Albert Hall. WI stalwarts Anne Harrison and Pat Tulip spent hours making 5,000 individual slices of cake for the big event which this year marks the society’s 100th birthday. The organisation had decided to serve only the ‘finest’ cakes to delegates and so ran a competition to find the best fruitcake recipe. After lengthy tasting and deliberation the winner was Julie Clark from North Yorkshire – and senior WI members Anne and Pat were chosen to bake the cakes. *** Local Caption *** Photo issued for one time editorial use only.
