LONDON EVENTS – Great British Barnes bake off

WhiteHart2Cake connoisseurs and bread makers are getting their oven gloves at the ready for the third, and hotly anticipated, Great British Barnes Bake Off on Saturday, 18th April. Held at Young’s pub, The White Hart, the annual challenge sees local flour-fanatics going head-to-head while raising money for local charity, St Christopher’s Fellowship.

Previous BBC Great British Bake Off winner and food writer, Edd Kimber; Jemma Wilson a blogger and the owner of Crumbs & Doilies cupcake shop in Soho; and Lindsay Taub from candy floss company Hot Spun Sugar will sample each of the contestants’ creations alongside a panel of Young’s judges, before crowning one the Great British Barnes Baker 2015.

Whether buns are your bag or fruitcakes your favourite, there will be winners in a range of categories too, including Traybake, Cupcake, Sponge Cake, Biscuit and Bread.

There will also be a category specifically for the younger bakers, aged 15 and under, giving them the opportunity to showcase their sweet treats as well.

Surrounded by bunting and fantastic views over the Thames, cake fans can sample all the bakes for themselves and donate what they feel the edible entries are worth, all whilst enjoying the quintessentially British pub. The doors will open at 10am with entry costing £2
