It’s almost time for another sensational night of cake-scoffing and chit-chatting, which can only mean one thing… That’s right, it’s high time we announced our judges for Gamerbake: One Special Bake.

Sponsored by the fine folks over at, One Special Bake will see the Gamerbake crew roll on down to London on September 29 to help raise a bucketload of cash for Special Effect.

As always, there’ll be more cake and prizes than you can shake a wobbly stick at, but before we can dish those out, we’ll need to crown a winner.

That’s where our wonderful judges step in. So, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the friendly faces who’ll be rating your tasty bakes in just under two weeks time:

Jupiter Hadley (@Jupiter_Hadley)

A seasoned Gamerbaker herself, Jupiter knows what it takes to take home arguably the best prize on planet earth. When she’s not whipping up tasty morsels for the Gamerbake community, you can find her curating indie games over on Steam, running a tremendous YouTube channel, speaking at events, and attending and organising game jams. You know, we’re not sure how she finds time for it all either!

Claire Sharkey (@DingItTV/@ScaryGranules)

Claire runs Brand and Community for Level Up Media, which owns and handles the events and sponsorship for the brands. She is also the founder of ScaryGranules and before working in the games industry was an engineer. She has recently been nominated for Best Esport Contender at the Women in Games awards.

She has entered Gamerbake herself a few times, mainly hoping that adding potent jelly shots would win the hearts and livers of other attendees. She’s a great believer that cake and tea heals many wounds or the sugar coma, at least serves a good distraction and doesn’t trust people who have intense hatred for either.

Charleyy Rachael (@CharleyyRachael)

Xbox UK’s social gal, one of MCV’s influential ’30 Under 30,’ and a streamer extraordinaire, it’s fair to say Charleyy is a person of many talents. Naturally, you don’t become a Gamerbake judge without having a keen eye for the sweet stuff, and Charleyy proved she’s also a formidable baker early this year by casually whipping up a smorgasbord of tasty treats for our Pride 2017 bake sale. That’s why she’s kindly agreed to help us separate the best from the rest (only kidding, every Gamerbaker is a winner in our eyes) later this month.
