As Milton Keynes bids to be made a city in celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Mayor of Milton Keynes has teamed up with baking experts at MK College on a pudding fit for royalty.
The Mayor’s Coffee Hall and Walnut Tree sponge was created to inspire local schoolchildren to come up with a Platinum Pudding ahead of formal Jubilee celebrations on the weekend of 5 June, when communities across the UK will be holding street parties and other events.
Mayor Khan is asking MK pupils to dream up a pudding for the Jubilee and send in photos or drawings of their ideas. He is hoping some of the pudding recipes will have a Milton Keynes connection, drawing on local place names, landmarks and historic features to mark MK’s bid to be made a city by The Queen.
A national competition to create a pudding for HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is also running, judged by baking experts led by Dame Mary Berry. The Queen will be served the winning pudding at a formal Jubilee event.
