As part of this year’s Balbriggan Summerfest, Balbriggan Library will host the “Great Balbriggan Bake Off 2015” on Thursday 28th May from 6.00-8.00pm.

This is our third Bake- Off contest and as you can see from the photos of previous contests, the standard is always amazing!

The competition is free and open to all amateur bakers and there are five categories to enter:

  1. Cakes
  2. Small Bakes
  3. Bread
  4. Pies/Tarts
  5. Junior Baker (aged 12 and under)

All the winners will receive an afternoon tea voucher and one baker will receive the trophy for the overall “Balbriggan Baker of the Year”. In addition, Balbriggan Library will be presenting a special prize for the best “Showstopper” entry.

Enthusiastic bakers can enter more than one category – and have multiple entries. Everything is baked at home and brought to the library on the night – we don’t have any baking facilities onsite! Unquestionably, we save the best part of the Bake Off to the end – when we cut up all the bakes for everyone to taste!

Perhaps you now need some inspiration to get started? Why not call into your local library and check out the baking section – or check our online catalogue and reserve an item. Balbriggan Library will have a display of our favourite baking books in the run up to the Bake Off. If you would like more information about taking part just call into balbriggan library or email us for a Balbriggan Bake Off Factsheet which lists all the entry details.

So let’s get baking!
