Cake Crusader Book

There is now a Cake Crusader book available where you can follow my journey from humble local trips to world record attempts and near-death experiences. How did a simple method of keeping track of decent cycling café pit stops turn my life upside down? Track my adventures into Europe, up mountains and right across Great Britain as I become a 'rising star' on social media. Will I prove my critics wrong? Should cheese scones be served hot or cold? Do I really have nothing better to do with his time? A must read for lovers of cycling and cake or anyone wanting to make it big in the virtual world

Available on Amazon

Cheese Scone of the year update

Cheese Scone of the Year 2015 update

Last week I announce the 10 short listed entrants in my search for the Cake Crusader cheese scone of the year 2015. 

With the excitement only just beginning to die down it's time for further details.

The plan for the scone off is as follows
1. Revisit all the cheese scone short listed venues, by bike of course, and purchase two cheese scones to take away.
2. The scones will be collected over two rides on the 9th and 10th December. Unfortunately the scones are too far apart to do on a single trip at this time of year.
3. Back at Crusader Towers I will correctly reheat all 20 scones ready for tasting
4. Myself and any fellow judges will then blind taste the scones and rank them purely on our tasting experience
5. Winning scone will be announced and awarded a coveted Cake Crusaders winners certificate in time for Christmas.

The 10 shortlisted scones can be found at the following venues, with the date and approx time I hope to be there to purchase the scones:

On Wednesday 9th December I will be catching an early train to Beccles and cycling from there to purchase the first seven sets of scones (subject to availability) using the following route.

The route for day two is in the hands of Andrew (who is notoriously hard to please) as North Norfolk is his domain and he has kindly agreed to accompany on this part of the mission. * * *Since speaking to Andrew he has insisted we also go to his favourite tea room at Heydon so we will be popping in to get a couple of scones from there as well.

The next challenge is to work out how to carry all the scones on my road bike, especially if it rains, so I'm off to the shed to test out a few prototypes. Look out for further updates next week and most importantly of all remember #cheesesconehot.
