Great Burnham Bake-Off returns with a delicious new challenge!
popular baking competition The Great Burnham Bake Off is set to
return to the town on Saturday 23rd May with a new challenge.
Spring contest, sponsored by Retreat Caravan Park, has been launched
this week with budding cake, bread and meringue makers being sought.
Beverley Milner Simonds said: "The Great Burnham Bake Off
has been such a popular competition at the last five Food and
Drink Festivals that this time we have tweaked the competitions
to specifically include our young bakers. We are not only looking
for the best cakes, but also bread and 6 meringues for our Technical
organiser Sarah Milner Simonds added: "The 'Technical Challenge'
last time was searching for Millionaires Shortbreads, but this
time we want six matching meringues. The overall champion in May
baked an amazing chocolate cake and so we embraced this traditional
baking by including lemon drizzle cake and Victoria sponge categories."
Debbie March said: "The Great Burnham Bake Off has become
an established part of the local calendar and we are very proud
to be the sponsor. I am champion of young bakers and I am delighted
to bring this new competition to the 'Bake Off'."
