The Three Sisters Bake officially start the race to find Scotland’s finest bakers for the first ever North Berwick Cake Off competition at North Berwick Fabulous Food Festival.
Taking place at the inaugural Fabulous Food Fest in North Berwick this August, the Friday 29th July deadline for Cake Off applicants is fast approaching.
Accomplished bakers, Verity Sinclair and Gareth Glen, will select 10 lucky applicants to go forward into the heats on Tuesday 9th August. Contestants are first challenged to make their tastiest vegetable cake. Be it carrot, beetroot, courgette or perhaps something more unusual, they are encouraged to be as creative as they like.
No cake competition is complete without the grand showstopper finale, and the North Berwick Cake Off will be no different. A winner from each heat will go through to the final. They should be prepared to pull out all the stops in creating their biggest, best, fanciest or quirkiest cake in an attempt to win the first ever Cake Off crown and a prize of £250.
Gillian Reith, Co-Founder of Three Sisters Bake, said:
‘Baking just goes from strength to strength, and with Great British Bake Off back on our screens next month, there isn’t a better time to test your baking skills. Past finalists prove there is a wealth of talent within Scotland’s baking industry, so we can’t wait to see what North Berwick’s finest brings to the table.’
North Berwick Cake Off is part of Fabulous Food Fest which runs from 8th – 14th August. Fabulous Food Fest will take place alongside Fringe by the Sea, to specifically celebrate the range of fantastic produce and producers that Scotland has to offer.
Caroline Vevers, Founder of Fabulous Food Fest said:
“Having lived in many places around the world I’ve sampled some great food but for me Scotland has one of the best larders in the world. And as a North Berwick resident, born and raised, I’ve seen the hard work and passion our producers apply to the Scottish food and drink industry. So it’s great to be able to celebrate their hard work at Fabulous Food Fest and get the word out there that North Berwick has a fantastic foodie scene!”
The festival has a jam-packed programme to suit all ages and tastes. Entertainment on offer includes a kids food show from ‘Tickles the Clown’, demonstrations from award-winning Scottish chefs, a return of the old TV favourite ‘Ready, Steady, Cook’ and Edinburgh Gin mixology and sampling. It also includes free entry to an exhibition from some of Scotland’s renowned food artisans and producers.
It’s open from 10am until 4pm, Tuesday through to Sunday. For more information on the ticketed events and to buy tickets visit http://www.fabulousfoodfest.org.uk
