Favourite Bake: Lemon Drizzle Cake

Back in November 2012, Kevin decided to set up Village Bakers with the simple aim to share homemade cakes with friends and meet new friends. This is still the ultimate aim of Village Bakers and he is extremely proud to see how the group has grown in popularity over the years and see so many friendships form over the years, Village Bakers have even seen the odd marriage and proposals at Village Bakers.

Tom Wright – Media & PR 20180416_103310

Speciality: Anything Savoury

Tom really enjoys cooking and has only recently started baking so is more comfortable with savoury and experimenting with flavours than with traditional cakes and decorating, however Village Bakers is giving him the opportunity to experiment and learn new bakes.
This is his third year on the committee and he is really looking forward to being able to promote the group to as many people as possible.
Tom’s husband Toby dragged him along to his first Village Bakers Sunday social back in the summer of 2016 and he has never looked back since.
