Saturday, 4th June – The Great Jubilee Bake-off
& Whiteway Family Fun Day
Spend the day in Whiteway with us at the Colony Playing field.
There will be something for everyone!
Entry into The Great Jubilee Bake-off is now open! This is a chance for everyone who loves baking to show off your baking skills.
Four classes of bakers:
Under 12 – The Under 12s are to make 6 or more identical cupcakes.*
Over 12 – The Over 12s are to make a classic Victoria Sandwich/Sponge. Judges will be looking for fresh fruit and piped cream decoration, but entrants are welcome to use whatever flavour jam they choose and may try their own take on the sponge flavours.
Jam may be store-bought.
Intermediates – The Intermediate class is for home bakers who know their way around a layer cake. This class must make a 3 or more layer cake. (They may make a Victoria Sponge if they wish, but it must be more than the classic 2 layer cake.)
Go for something classic, or something unusual- it’s up to you, however keep in mind points will be awarded for creativity!
Advanced – The Advanced class is for you home bakers out there who are up for a challenge! You have big ideas and you know how to make them– out of cake! Your entry must be suitable for a centrepiece and will make the crowds say, “Wow!”
Entries must include at least one layer cake (2 or more layers) or can be a tiered creation. Store-bought fondant icing is acceptable, however those who make their own from scratch will receive extra points!
Category theme for all classes: The Platinum Jubilee.
Please read all rules and then enter online by clicking here.
*Children under 12 are welcome to enter a higher class, but will be judged equally with those in that class (i.e., no special treatment because they are younger.)
Family races, games and fun activities will all be happening before we have a picnic lunch and get to taste some of the amazing cake creations from the Bake-off after the awards ceremony.
At 4pm, the Cricket Friendly will begin (12 overs). Teams will be formed closer to the time, but it will be a fun, friendly match and everyone is welcome to have a go.
We will have a barbecue after the match until the sun sets.
Cross your fingers for dry, warm weather– the pool might even be open!
