Charity fair trade bake off details
The ‘Fairtrade Bake-Off’ is organised by charity Sustainable Wales and Madeleine Moon MP has agreed to judge.
This is an exciting opportunity for pupils from local schools to get involved in this festival which will promote Fairtrade.
Last year’s ‘bake-off’ winners in Porthcawl were 11-year old Mack Jenkins, a former contestant on CBBC TV Bake-off programme and Nottage Primary (with assistance from staff). Maybe your school pupils and teachers might enter?
Margaret Minhinnick commented: “2016 proves children LOVE bake-offs! I’m sure this year will be even better.
“Think about chocolate cup-cakes, teisen lap, Austrian coffee cake. The list is endless.
We also invite people, young or not so young, from churches, organisations and the community to ‘get baking’.”
To take part
- Bake a Fairtrade cake (that’s cooked with some fairtrade ingredients, such as sugar, chocolate, etc. or goodies, and bring them with recipe, along on the Saturday, March 18.
- Help publicise the event
Even if you can’t bake, come along and taste!
On the day, simply bring your favourite recipe along with your cake made with as many Fairtrade ingredients as you are able. Carnegie House will be open from 9.30 a.m. for you to bring your entry. Judging will take place at 10.30 (There will be prizes for best under 15 and best over 15 entry)
The cakes/goodies will be used for refreshments and the public will be invited to vote for the ‘public’s choice’ for an additional prize.
A great place to buy your fairtrade ingredients is SUSSED, James St., Porthcawl, Margaret Minhinnick added.
‘The charity, Sustainable Wales are planning to produce a Fairtrade recipe book for the best entries. We are seeking a good title for the book. Ideas please!”
