Apprentice wins top student culinary competition

Apprentice baker Jessica Dalton took gold at the Hospitality and Catering Salon Culinaire 2016 with her spectacular Eiffel Tower cake.

Dalton, 19, who is learning her craft at University College Birmingham (UCB), made her replica of the famous tower from royal icing. She won first prize last week at the Hospitality and Catering Salon Culinaire 2016, which was held at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College.

UCB’s trainee bakers, chefs and foodservice students won a total of 26 medals at the event, including five golds, as well as the award for the Best Visiting College Team.

Dalton has previously held positions at Hindleys Bakery in Lichfield and the Make a Wish Cake Shop in Birmingham.
