Heroes at Highclere
Sunday 3 August Launchpad Reading will be hosting a Great War Café at Highclere Castle the home of Downton Abbey. Together Launchpad and Warings Bakery will aim to serve a thousand cream teas to hungry visitors on the East Lawn of this fabulous home.
In addition to serving cream teas there will also be a Great War Café Baking Competition. Anyone can take part with a chance to win four tickets to Highclere Castle, a signed book by Lady Carnarvon, a Warings Masterclass Gift Certificate and a Highclere Castle goody bag.
Simply bake your best two 6”round fruit cakes, the first which will be judged at Warings Bakery, who will then choose the top ten finalists through to Heroes at Highclere on Sunday 3 August where their second cake will be judged and the winners decided. The ten finalists will all receive two tickets to the event worth £50.

For quite some time now, we've seen an ever growing demand for gluten and wheat free products to be made available in our shops.
As this is a very specialist product and needs to be made in a "clean environment" meaning no chance of contamination from wheat, or flour products, it's not possible for us to make this in our bakery.
However, we have finally found a family bakers, who's ethos and passion for baking is similar to ours and the quality of product excellent. Made with local ingrediaents where possible, produced fresh to order for us and above all, tastes absolutely fantastic, meaning you can now, have your cake and it eat....as well as some tasty meat & vegetarian savouries.
Some of the other great products we'll be stocking include*
Pies & Pasties Lemon Drizzle Scones Fruit Cake Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cupcakes
