Great Barrow Bake Off 2013

BRILLIANT baking talent was on show at this weekend’s Evening Mail Great Barrow Bake Off.

Celebrity chef Simon Rimmer said he was impressed by the standard of the entries, especially in the under-15s category.

With shows such as The Great British Bake Off attracting millions of viewers, home baking has undergone something of a renaissance in recent years. There were cakes of all designs from little cupcakes, to teapots, boats, shoes and handbags on show at the Forum on Saturday.

Junior entrant Abbie Knowles, 12, from Barrow, said she had been cooking from a young age.

She said: “I’m a very keen baker and have been doing it for about three years.”

Judge Doreen Galbraigh, 77, of Cumbria - Westmorland Women’s Institute said: “I think a competition like this is fantastic and the entries are of a very high standard.”

Simon Rimmer, from Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, took time out from Foodie Fest to look at the entries. He said: “The standard is fantastic. I was particularly impressed by the children’s entries.”

The Professional category was won by Angela Orr, from Walney, for her vintage garden design. She has won dinner for two at Lindeth Howe in Windermere and a £20 Lakeland Ltd voucher. Second prize went to Rhiannon Smith also from Barrow. She was awarded a £20 Lakeland limited voucher.

The Home Bakers competition was won by Sarah McNicol from Ulverston. She has won dinner for two at the Fisherman's Arms, Baycliff, and a £20 Lakeland Ltd voucher. Second was Adna Posnett from Barrow who was given a £20 Lakeland Ltd voucher. Third prize went to Judith Williams, from Barrow who also won a £20 Lakeland Ltd voucher.

The Under 15s was won by Tyler Johnson from Barrow. She won a £50 Frankie and Benny's voucher and a £20 Lakeland Ltd Voucher. Second was Elsie Hurley from Barrow, aged six, who was given a £15 Heath's voucher and a £20 Lakeland Ltd voucher. Third was Katie Simpson who won a £20 Lakeland Ltd voucher.

All the cakes were sold off and the money will be donated to St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston.
