For several years, Vantil & I were invited to judge home-made cakes in the varous baking competitions. What a treat and typical Vantil, he took the judging to a whole other level, creating score cards for us to complete, with different categories such as appearance, originality and taste. We took our responsibiity very seriously (!) and every year Vantil would add categories to the score cards, to ensure that we could treat all cakes and bakers fairly! When the serious job of scoring and awarding the prizes was complete, we’d sit together, high on a sugar rush and sort out the day’s big issues (his shirt selection, raising teenagers). Happy, happy days.
