Festival Bake Off Competition

Home bakers are invited to enter Lichfield Food Festival’s Bake Off on Sunday 30 August 2015. Cakeydora, the Baking Academy based on Upper St John Street in Lichfield, is setting home bakers a new challenge this year. The challenge is to bake a strawberries and cream festival gateau at home following Cakeydora’s recipe.

Children (up to the age of 15) can also get in on the fun and enter four Jack and the Beanstalk themed cupcakes. The cupcakes do not need to be decorated the same, although only one cake will be tasted.

The cakes will be tasted in a live judging in Lichfield Garrick’s Studio from 12 noon to 1pm on Sunday 30 August.

The top adult baker will win a selection of prizes, including vouchers for Cakeydora and The Kitchen Shop, dinner for two at Darwin’s at The George, and a Prosecco afternoon tea for two at McKenzie’s Restaurant.

The winner in the child category will also receive vouchers and a family ticket to see Jack and the Beanstalk at the Lichfield Garrick on Saturday 5 December at 7pm.
