Burnham Bake Off returns with new harvest-themed challenges
Great Burnham Bake off is set to make a tasty return to the town's
Food Festival this Autumn.
The next festival, on Saturday October 31st, will see several
new categories being introduced for budding bakers.
Festival organiser Bev Milner Simonds told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The Great Burnham Bake Off has been a popular competition
at the last six Food & Drink Festivals. This time, we are
not only looking for the best cakes, but also bread and a Christmas
Cake from our professional bakers."
Fellow organiser Sarah Milner Simonds continued: "The Technical
Challenge last time was searching for meringues, this time we
want three matching shortcut sausage rolls."
"We are also embracing the harvest time with a search for
carrot cake and Christmas cakes. We are also asking bakers if
they are happy to share their bakes with the other bakers."
Sponsor Debbie March from Burnham's Retreat Caravan Park 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 raise their
profile with this competition at the 'Bake Off'."
Bakers can download
entry forms and rules here and present a completed form and
their bake before 2pm on Saturday 31st October at Somerset Skills
& Learning in Burnham's Princess Street.
