Year 8 Student enters Fortnum & Mason Queen's Platinum Jubilee Pudding Competition
The Platinum Pudding Competition marks the beginning of the official celebrations for the jubilee. Launched by Fortnum & Mason on Monday 10 January, it aims to find a dessert worthy of dedicating to the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
Recipes will be judged by an expert panel that includes culinary legend Dame Mary Berry, Great British Bake Off star Liam Charles and MasterChef: The Professionals maestro, Monica Galetti.
They will be judging a range of criteria: it must be an original recipe that (obviously) tastes great, is perfect for amateur bakers to make at home and looks fit for a Queen.
It also helps if the pudding has a memorable story behind it – perhaps it’s inspired by the monarch herself, or come from a recipe passed down through generations of your own family.
Lilia is a very talented baker and we are sure the judges will be delighted by her delicious creation! Fingers crossed in the competition Lilia!
