Queen Elizabeth will soon have her very own pudding named in her honor. The said pudding will be the winning item at a competition set to take place during the Queen's upcoming Platinum Jubilee, where she will mark 70 years of service and time on the throne. Read on to know how you can join the competition.
Buckingham Palace has announced that a baking competition is set to happen in the United Kingdom during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. The special contest is geared at crafting a brand new pudding that'll bear the 95-year-old monarch's name.
The statement reads that the Big Jubilee Lunch and Fortnum & Mason are inviting residents, ages 8 and up, "to create the perfect platinum pudding recipe."
The top 5 finalists will then have to showcase their creations to a judging panel. The panel features an all-star team including former Great British Bake Off judge Dame Mary Berry, MasterChef: The Professionals judge Monica Galetti, and Buckingham Palace Head Chef Mark Flanagan.
The winning recipe will then be shared with the public, and served at lunches during the Jubilee weekend.
Looks like the jubilee will be one to remember!
The new pudding won't be the only item created to mark the Queen's special milestone. Just days before the announcement of the contest, the Royal Mint unveiled a new 50p coin to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which shows her on her favorite steed. In addition to featuring her insignia and the years of her reign, one coin features the monarch on horseback.
In a recent interview, Clare Maclennan, divisional director of The Royal Mint in Llantrisant, said:
"Designed by esteemed artists and made with original craftsmanship, Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee coins are enduring pieces of art that will be collected, cherished and passed down for generations."
