JFK Launches its Own Great British Bake Off!

Thursday, 06 December 2018 16:58

During the lead-up to Christmas, the Hair by JFK teams at both the Bruntsfield and South Clerk Street salons have been competing to win the Hair by JFK Great British Bake Off.

Each stylist from the Bruntsfield and South Clerk Street salons are taking part in the competition, where the overall winner will be rewarded with a prize at Tom Kitchin’s new restaurant, the Southside Scran in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh.

Every week stylists bake delicious cakes and pastries for their salon and clients judge accordingly. Once all stylists have competed and baked their own sweet treats, the two stylists with the highest scores from both salons will go head to head in the ‘Show Stopper Challenge’ where they will both create a final treat for clients to judge. Both bakes will also be showcased on social media for other clients not in the salon to join in and vote for who’s bake they think looks best prior to the winner with the most votes being provided with their prize of a meal for two at the new Tom Kitchin Southside Scran restaurant in Edinburgh. 

So far stylists have made a variety of scrumptious treats including gin and tonic fudge served with blush gin shots, Christmassy cake pops, Ferrero Roche cheesecakes, Aero mint brownies, and millionaire shortcake. Karen, Owner of Hair by JFK commented: “The competition is a great way to boost staff’s morale during the festive months when the salons are incredibly busy and is also great for clients who get to taste the sweet treats and get to judge the competition. The teams love having a bit competition against each other too, which is always fun to watch!”
