On Your Marks, Get Set, Bake! It’s the Ballingdon Fete’s inaugural Bake Off with Florence Godfrey, owner of Florabelle’s to judge
Ballingdon Fete, the first of its kind, will host a bake off during the event with prizes including star baker aprons & a voucher for afternoon tea
The fete is taking place at Kone Vale, Ballingdon in Sudbury, from 12pm-4pm with live music, a dog show & bar. There’s also a sheep throwing competition (don’t worry, not real sheep, but harks back to the legend of two fire-breathing creatures who arose out of the Stour and started throwing sheep at each other in anger.. as you do!)
However, the Bake Off, will be one of the main highlights of the fete. Budding bakers are invited to enter the competition on Sunday and there will be three categories
The Showstopper (an element of which has to be baked) category has the theme of Suffolk to celebrate the county.
The second category is a cake containing fruit.
The third category is 12 identical biscuits.
You can enter as many categories as you wish, and each one has one of these Stand up to Cancer aprons for the star baker!
Florence Godfrey, owner of Sudbury’s vintage tea room, Florabelles, has been asked to judge the Bake Off Competition. She is also donating an afternoon tea for two voucher as one of the prizes.
Well known in the area for her fantastic cakes, one of the things Florence wants to make sure people avoid, is a soggy bottom. She goes onto say “ The ideal cake and something all judges look for in a perfect bake is precision, appearance, uniformity, texture and of course, taste. I’m really looking forward to tasting the excellent entries in the first ever Ballingdon Fete Bake Off. It was an honour to be asked to judge the competition”
Entry to the Bake Off costs £2 per entry and entries should be brought to the fete from 12noon until 2pm, when judging will start.
