BakingMad.com is sponsoring the Cake and Bake Show this year, and YOU have a chance to WIN £150 cash PLUS a masterclass with Eric Lanlard!
Gingerbread fans across the country are being invited to reserve a plot in the Tastiest Gingerbread Village at the Manchester Cake & Bake Show in April.
Competitors can enter their plans for their unique gingerbread structure online, and the organisers will select the most promising entrants to bring their creation to the show to form part of the gingerbread village display.
Winners will be selected by a judging panel including master patissiere Eric Lanlard, and prizes will be awarded in both adult and junior categories.
The judges will be looking for originality, creativity, build structure, innovative design and of course taste.
Billington’s unrefined sugars are the perfect ingredient for your gingerbread recipe. Locking in, rather than refining out, the natural molasses of the sugar cane this process ensures Billington’s has a unqiue richness and taste which will transform your home baking.
The organisers are keen not to restrict your imagination and so the only real limitations are the size of the plot – 12 x 12 inches, with entrants free to create any structure from gingerbread, not just houses, with landscaping and gardens etc encouraged. So be inspired by your childhood memories of the edible creations in Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and Hansel and Gretel and send in your ideas for your candy-clad constructions today via www.thecakeandbakeshow.co.uk/competitions
There are just two categories – adults and juniors – so it’s a competition open to all – and with £150 cash PLUS a masterclass with master patissiere Eric Lanlard (worth £195!) on offer as the first prize in the adult category, as well as £100 cash for the runner up, why not enter? Junior winners will receive £100 cash and a Billington’s goody bag, with £50 cash for the runner up.
