Burnham-On-Sea baking contest aims to find 'champion of champions'

Burnham-On-Sea's Food and Drink Festival returns with The Great Burnham Bake Off on Saturday 27th May when the search will be on to find the Champion of Champions - and a newcomer.

Festival organiser Sarah Milner Simonds told "It is our 10th festival this May and we have had ten cracking Bake Off competitions. We are inviting our previous winners back to compete with their winning bakes to find our Champion of Champions."

"A big thank you to our sponsors, Positive Wealth Creation Limited who backed us right at the beginning and in recent competitions, The Retreat Caravan Park. Their help and support has meant this competition has risen to the task and proved it's potential."

Sponsor Debbie March from the Retreat Caravan Park, pictured, said: "We have seen and tasted some amazing bakes over the past 10 competitions and I am very much looking forward to the challenge of finding the creme de la creme."

Co-organiser Bev Milner Simonds added: "We don't want new bakers to feel intimidated and we have a special class for first-time bakers. If you have never entered the competition before - now is your chance! We have two classes - one for under 15s and one for over 15. The task is to us a 10th birthday cake and bring it along on the day."

Bakers have to hand their bakes in before 2pm at Somerset Skills and Learning with a completed entry form which is downloadable here.
