YOUNG people have the chance to show off their baking skills as part of this year’s Droitwich Food and Drink Festival.
The free to enter Junior Bake Off contest, which has been sponsored by Andrew Grant, challenges children to make a cake and decorate it.
The competition will be split into two age categories – five and nine and ten to 15 – and each entry will be judged on appearance, taste and creativity.
The younger children have been tasked with making four cupcakes which show a good use of colour and decoration and the older ones have been asked to make a large cake with the decoration reflecting an aspect of Droitwich.
Judges on the day will be Gemma Philips from Andrew Grant, Michelle Bowen from Tagwell Tearooms and Laurie Cheape, the manager of the Droitwich branch of Lloyds Bank.
The winner will be officially announced after 2pm on June 20 and will receive a trophy and a gift from Andrew Grant.
Last year’s Junior Bake Off yielded more than 20 entries and the organisers are hoping for a similar response this year.
Cakes need to be delivered with an entry form to Andrew Grant’s estate agents, Victoria Square, by 11am on June 20.
An entry form can be cut out from this page or downloaded from www.droitwichspafestival.co.uk – the Droitwich Spa Festival website.
