I promise I’ll get round to blogging cake recipes soon, but I wanted to just mention an awesome cake competition happening in Birmingham.

The Great Birmingham Bake Charity Off is a week long series of baking competitions all taking place at SixEight Kafe in the city centre.  As well as showcasing some fantastic cakes the event is in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital who are currently raising money to improve the Children’s Cancer Ward.

Poster copyThe categories for the baked goods are…

Monday 21 January:  Tea time treats
Tuesday 22 January:  Savoury Baking
Wednesday 23 January: International flavours
Thursday 24 January:  Cookies, biscuits & flapjacks
Friday 25 January: Tarts and pastries
Saturday 26 January: Inspired by Birmingham (like professional category) and children’s baking plus face-painting and other fun!

Entering is simple – complete an try form, pay a £5 donation to enter (there’s a discount for multiple days) and bring your entry to SixEight Kafe on the morning of the day you’re entreating (before 9.30am).

If eating is more your thing then you can join in the judging by making a donation to sample the baking from 10am – 5.30pm each day at the cafe.  Suggested donation is £1 but I’m sure you can do better than that.

Check out the Facebook event for more details!
