Poppy - hope house baker competition

The hunt is on for Nantwich’s very own home star baker as Hope House children’s hospice launches its Eat Cake Week.

Bakers and cake-lovers are being asked to get out their mixing bowls and put on their aprons during half-term between October 26 to November 1.

Participants can enter Hope House’s bake-off competition, or host virtual coffee mornings and afternoon teas to keep in touch with friends, while also raising much needed funds for the charity.

Fundraiser Sarah Ritchie said: “Whether you bake or buy a cake, hold a coffee morning or afternoon tea, keeping to the Government guidelines or virtually, every cake sold and every penny raised will help a local seriously ill child and their family get the care and support they desperately need.

“We are also looking for cafes and bakeries who can join in the fun by fundraising for us, perhaps by choosing a special ‘Cake of the Week’ and donating a portion of their sales.”

The community bake off will see competitors enter their home-made creation to be judged by a panel of cake connoisseurs, to be judged this year’s Hope House star baker.

Bakers are challenged to produce a show stopping a rainbow sponge cake using the colours from the Hope House logo: blue, yellow, pink and green, with a team of chief bakers recording a video tutorial.

All bakers need to do is send a photo of their masterpiece to Hope House, and for people to make a donation in lieu of an entry fee.
