Good Food Bakes & Cake Show

To celebrate the first ever BBC Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show sponsored by Lexus, the organisers are launching a Show Competition, giving visitors the chance to meet the Queen of Baking Mary Berry at a delicious Afternoon Tea.

The BBC Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show Competition gives home bakers the chance to reveal their hidden talents and show what they can do. The competition will consist of two categories: The first is Bakes, which calls for pies, pastries, breads, biscuits, or anything else baked that isn’t cake. The second is Cakes, which calls for any kind of cake decorated in the spooky Halloween theme.

Each category is open to both adults and juniors (aged under-16), with the four winners being chosen by expert baker judges John Whaite and Eric Lanlard and announced live at the event on Saturday 25 October.

Not only will the winners of each category (one adult, one junior winner) enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea for themselves and a guest, they will also win a Kenwood kMix Stand Mixer, and meet Mary to have a copy of her latest book personalised.

For a chance to win, applicants must fill in the entry form on the show website, http://www.bbcgoodfoodbakesandcakesshow.com by Friday 26 September. They will need to describe what the entry will look like, the techniques involved and (for the Bakes category) the flavours or ingredients used. It’s recommended that entrants also include a sketch or photo to support their entry. All shortlisted entrants will be notified by Friday 3 October, and will be invited to attend the show and bring their Bake or Cake for judging on Saturday 25 October.

The brand new BBC Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show will be packed with baking, bread making and cake crafting demonstrations, free master classes, and hundreds of products to get visitors baking like a pro. Every ticket includes a seat in the Bakes & Cakes Theatre, where visitors can see Mary Berry, Mich Turner, John Whaite, Paul Hollywood, Eric Lanlard, Lisa Faulkner and other expert bakers sharing the tips of their trade and baking live.
