Search underway for Lakeland's best cake
Published at 11:34, Wednesday, 09 January 2013
BAKERS are getting ready to take part in the Lakeland Cake of the Year competition.
The annual search for the county’s top cake will conclude at the Briery Wood Hotel, in Windermere, in June, when the judges makes their decision.
Once again the contest will raise money for Alice’s Escapes, the charity set up by Ulverston’s Alice Pyne to provide respite holidays for families with sick children.
The decoration theme this year is lakes, rivers and tarns, with the competition sponsored by Head to the Hills Open Water Swimming Club and Windermere Reflections. The judges will include ITV presenter Hannah McNulty, food writer Philippa James, BBC Radio Cumbria’s Kevin Fernyhough, and last year’s winner Maggie Pearce.
Cakes entered can be any shape but must be no more than 12ins in diameter. Contestants are urged to register their entries as soon as possible, as there is a limit of 30 for the final.
Organiser Jennifer Braithwaite said: “There’s never been so much interest in cake, partly due to all the TV shows.”
Entry forms will be available to download soon from the Briery Wood and Head to the Hills websites.
