Young Frankenstein was announced as the winners of the fourth annual right royal West End Bake Off in aid of Acting for Others – and a whopping £9.5k was raised. So which show’s cake was the Hamilton cast tucking into and who rustled up the brain-shaped creation that took the fancy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? Read on to find out more...
The Mel Brooks musical was chosen by returning judge Christopher Biggins alongside Wendi Peters and Ruthie Henshall at the event held at St Pauls Actors Church in Covent Garden.
Young Frankenstein was crowned the winner of this year’s West End Bake Off after competing against 16 other West End shows, including The Play That Goes Wrong, The Mousetrap, Les Misérables, Phantom Of The Opera, Book of Mormon, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Mamma Mia!, Thriller Live!, The Great Gatsby, Iris Theatre and industry paper The Stage. They follow in the footsteps of 42nd Street which won the third West End Bake Off in 2017 and which raised over £5,000 for the charity.
Commenting on the winner, West End Bake Off judge Christopher Biggins said:
“It’s so fantastic to be here again judging for the fourth year of this amazing competition which helps so many people in the West End. Every year gets more and more exciting and the cakes get more and more phenomenal, it really is such an exciting day!”
