Entries for WI Towcester’s Bake Off competition are now open - welcoming those of all ages.

Three classes are to be judged on the day. Two for adults which will see them bake either a Classic Victoria Sandwich Cake or a Stout Beer Fruit Cake and one for children up to the age of 12 for Cup-cake decorating.

The event takes place Saturday September 19 at Towcester Town Hall which gives entrants plenty of time to practice in a hope to bag some of the brilliant prizes on offer.

First place prizes include; a baking workshop with Artisan Baker, Ben Frazer, a tour for two people of Towcester Mill Brewery with beer tasting and the children’s prize, a baking set courtesy of WI. Adult runners up will receive a certificate for second place whereas certificates will be awarded to all child entries.

Entry costs £1 for each class, and forms and fees must be handed in to Towcester Library or Towcester Tea Rooms by September 12.

Cakes should be taken to the Town Hall between 9am and 10am ready to be judged by 10.30am. Winners will be announced at 11:45am and cakes can be collected from 3pm.

This year marks the centenary of the Women’s Institute in Britain since it first formed in Anglesey in June 1915.
