Taylor Lane Timber Frame’s Battle of the Bakers 2018

With the changing of the clocks and a chill in the air, it’s time for the return of the Taylor Lane Battle of the Bakers!  After several years of savoury and sweet pie baking (and far too many victories for MD, Barrie), we decided to shake things up for 2018 and set the challenge of baking either:

Savoury – pasties or sausage rolls

Sweet – eclairs or Belgian buns

The entrants were judged on pastry, flavour combinations and just how bloomin’ good they tasted!

With a winner in each category, we’re thrilled to say that they were both won by newcomers to the competition, Wayne and Molly.

Winning Entries

Savoury: Wayne

Wayne experimented with the traditional sausage roll filling, combining bacon, mushroom, onion, beans and sweet potato for a surprisingly tasty pastry treat.

Sweet: Molly

Molly heightened the flavour of sweetened dough, sultanas and icing, adding a dollop of lemon curd filling to her Belgian buns.  They were amazing!

Well done to both of you.



Taylor Lane Services

"We have a long history with Taylor Lane. They have worked with Lovell and been part of our supply chain for well over 15 years, that I know to. When I have visited Hereford (on a number of occasions), it’s a welcoming business that’s open, honest and transparent on all matters commercial, design, technical. We quickly derived confidence that they were the right choice for us...and that’s been vindicated by performance onsite thereafter."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had worked with them [Taylor Lane] previously and were happy to continue that relationship knowing the quality of the frame and the service that we would receive."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had heard nothing but positive reviews about Taylor Lane and after meeting with Padraig [Taylor Lane’s self-build manager] and talking through our vision, we had no hesitation in our decision to build using a Taylor Lane frame.  Padraig was fantastic throughout, as was the supply and delivery of the frame.  Every dealing we had with them was a pleasure"

5/ 5 Stars

"The supply and delivery of materials was well-managed and the quality was excellent. The erection of the frame was carried out promptly and professionally, and completed on programme."
