Platinum Pudding - Jemma Melvin’s Lemon Swiss Roll and Amaretti Trifle beat off competition from the four other creative and passionate bakers

Jemma Melvin's Lemon Swiss Roll and Amaretti Trifle has been awarded the title of Platinum Pudding for The Queen's Jubilee celebrations in a unanimous decision by judges, it was announced on BBC One's The Jubilee Pudding: 70 Years in the Baking.

In the Fortnum & Mason Platinum Pudding competition, Jemma's Lemon Swiss Roll and Amaretti Trifle triumphed over four other creative and enthusiastic bakers, Kathryn, Sam, Shabnam, and Susan. Her winning recipe goes down in British culinary history alongside the Coronation Chicken and the Victoria Sponge.

Fortnum & Mason, who have a long history with the Royal Household, challenged the people of the UK to create a recipe that met the criteria of being fit for a queen, having a memorable story, tasting just right, being perfect for home bakers, and having the potential to stand the test of time and become a classic, in collaboration with The Big Lunch Charity, an official partner of the Platinum Jubilee Weekend.

On her winning recipe being chosen for such a worldwide celebration, 31-year-old copywriter, Jemma says: "Oh my. I have to tell my grandma first, she is the person that taught me how to bake and I am so excited to tell her, she's going to be so proud, I can't wait, I can't wait.

"I am so happy, I am so happy, thank you so much Mary, it's been an honour as well to have your feedback. It's just meant the world to me so thank you.

"The thought of people recreating my pudding, especially round the Jubilee, is just a total pleasure."
