Inspired by Bake Off? Try the Cake Off!

Great British Food Festival returns to Arley Hall

The Great British Food Festival is offering all budding bakers out there free entry to their Arley Hall food festival when it returns this September.

All you have to do is enter their ‘Cake Off’ and you will get free entry as well as a chance to win the acclaim of ex Bake Off star judges along with a fantastic prize from Kenwood.

Organisers say the Cake Off is always a popular part of the festival, where amateur bakers go head to head to impress the judges.

The panel will be made up of ex Bake Off Stars including the likes of Val Stones, Howard Middleton, Jane Beedle, and Alana Spencer (apprentice winner 2016) as well as Poynton baking sensation Luis Troyano.

The cakes are also handed out to the audience, so everyone gets to join in and try them.

Luis said: “I love demoing at the shows and the highlight of the weekend is judging the public cake off.

“The effort people put into their cakes is simply staggering and I learn from these show stoppers every time. So get baking and bring a cake to enter. I can't wait to  try them!”

As well as judging the Cake Off, many of the Bake Off stars will be showing off their skills on the main Chef Demo Stage.

Alongside celeb chefs, some of the best regional talent will be showcasing their skills; from baking tips to fine dining know-how, the Demo Theatre is the place to be for any budding chef.

Festival director Dan Maycock said, “The star bakers we have at the events are always really keen to get involved, it’s a nice fun event, and people love to have their cakes judged ‘Bake Off’ style.”

Billed as ‘the perfect recipe for a fun, foodie day out for the whole family’, for more info visit:
