won’t be a walk in the park but it will be “sweet” for a whole bunch of folks
attending Metchosin Day 2015. Heads up, the
annual Metchosin Day Bake Off is coming and we know there are all sorts of
closet bakers out there who want to be discovered.
Local cake makers are encouraged to enter
their baking under the 4 general categories of:
BUTTER CAKES (e.g. white, spice, yellow).
EGG CAKES (e.g. chiffon, sponge, angle food).
SPECIALTIY CAKES (e.g. fresh fruit, dried fruit, nut).
CHOCOLATE CAKE (in a class all of its own).
All cakes are to be
from scratch and iced and/or decorated.
PIE bakers will want their recipes to be within
Pie (e.g. nut).
All crusts are to be
made from scratch. Decorations are to be edible.
second and third place prize ribbons will be awarded in each category as well
as a rosette ribbon for both Best of Show and Best Decorated.
BAKE OFF SUBMISSIONS
MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE DISTRICT COUNCIL CHAMBERS BY 11:30 A.M. Mark your name and phone number on the bottom
of your baking dish, plus your age if you are a junior.
*Please do not use your most treasured baking
dishes – if you win best of Show the dish might get lost in the excitement as
it did last year (for the first time since these contests started).
Now for the fun part. The “Best of Show” winning pie
and cake will each be raffled off. There
will be $2 draw tickets for sale at the contest area.
By popular demand, the baked items will be sold to the
public, so keep an eye on what fabulous
home-made items are entered in the contest this year.
