It’s Showstopper Time at Comber Farmers’ Market! Inspired by the popular Great British Bake Off TV programme, a cake decorating competition will take place on Thursday 2 November at Comber Farmers’ Market, St Mary’s Parish Church Car Park, the Square, Comber, 9.00am -1.00pm. Amateur bakers are invited to bake a cake of their choice which can be of any size and for any occasion. Cakes will be judged on creativity, taste and skill. As most schools are off for Halloween, there will also be a children’s competition for 11 years of age and under. Budding bakers are invited to enter three decorated digestive biscuits on a plate. Entry forms can be picked up from Comber Library and local shops or downloaded here. Entry forms must be returned to Comber Library or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 27 October at 4.00pm.
Alderman Deborah Girvan who is organising the Comber Cake Off said, “We have some brilliant local bakers in our area and this is an opportunity to show off their skills. We have some lovely prizes to give away including afternoon tea for two at the Coatmaker’s Cafe kindly donated by Winnie Magee from the Lightning Tree, baking ingredients and baking utensils, plus each prize winner will be given half a dozen fresh eggs from Springmount Farm. Entries for both competitions should be brought to the Comber Cake Off gazebo at the market on 2 November before 10.00am. Judging will take place at 12.00pm and winners announced at 12.30pm after which competitors can take their cakes home. We are delighted that Joris Minne, Belfast Telegraph Food critic will be joining local judges Audrey Davison and Heather Rutherford. If people don’t want to enter a cake, I would encourage them to come along to the award winning artisan food market to not only see the cakes but also to support the 26 local traders who sell a fabulous range of produce and plants.”
