Tuesday is Food Day - Boscombe Bake Off




This week's Tuesday is Food Day is dedicated to Boscombe Bake Off happening this weekend on Saturday the 9th of March at Crumbs Cafe, Boscombe.

I work for the University and at this time of year all of the Leisure Marketing and Events Management Students have to plan and run events as part of their course, and this event really caught my eye. 

The Boscombe Bake Off is being planned in association with Crumbs Cafe, a disability training charity.  Crumbs has, since 1997, developed a workplace, pre-employment programme of learning.
Training is undertaken through dedicated baking/cooking/service delivery programmes, which are accessed by a mixed-disability workforce.  All trainees are local adults with mental illness, learning disabilities, stabilised addiction and acquired head injury.  Crumbs emphasis is on skills and confidence: improving health and employability.

Are you good at baking?  Or, like me, are you partial to a piece of cake on far too frequent an occasion?  Either way why not head over to the Boscombe Bake Off Facebook page to find out all about this great event.  It's £5 to enter a cake and if you're not entering a cake it's £2 on the door and no doubt a plethora of cake to enjoy!  (If you do want to enter a cake you must submit an application first so go do it now!  All details on the Facebook Page).  Plus cakes will be judged by Olympian Pippa Funnell and the prizes are grea to:

1st prize: £50 cash prize, a £30 gift voucher towards a meal at Koh Thai Tapas and a signed Mary Berry cook book

2nd prize: £25 gift voucher towards a meal at Urban Reef and a signed Mary Berry cook book

3rd prize: Breakfast for 2 at Roxy Bistro Restaurant and a signed Mary Berry picture.

I'm gutted I'm not here this weekend or I'd be entering a cake myself.

Good luck to all those entering a cake and to those organsing, it's sure to be a great evenet.

mmmmm..........cake!!! xx
