The Great Roath Bake Off 2013

The Great Roath Bake Off 2013It’s back! Thanks to huge popular demand, the Great Roath Bake Off returns on Saturday 6th April.

One of Roath’s best-attended events last year (and one of our most-read posts!), with standing room only and people queuing to get into the venue, the Bake Off is the perfect opportunity for you to show off your baking skills.

This year, the categories will be:

Best Cake
Best Bake: Bread/Pie/Other
Best Bake/Cake Under 16’s

Local host and tireless charity fundraiser Wayne Courtney told us,

‘We had such a lot of fun last year, with some amazing cakes, biscuits and pies entered into the competition. So many people wanted to enter and couldn’t, due to space, that we’ve moved this year to St Andrew’s Church Hall, where there’ll be plenty of room for everyone.

It’ll be a much bigger event in 2013, with live music by Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon (and others still to be confirmed), and also refreshments, craft stalls and charity raffles.  It’s going to be a fun-packed afternoon, and we’ll be raising money for St Andrew’s Charitable Funds.

We can’t wait to see what the good people of Roath can rustle up this year!’

Entrants should bring their cake or bake to the venue by 1pm on the day, and you won’t need to fill in an entry form in advance. Entry is £3 per bake. A panel of expert judges will decide the winners of The Great Roath Bake Off 2013.

RoathCardiff’s own food and drink expert Matt will be a judge at the event for the second time – read his review of last year’s event here.
