The Great Chudleigh Bake Off

Bake off

Calling all budding bakers!

Chudleigh Pre-School is hosting The Great Chudleigh Bake Off on Sunday 5th July in the Chudfest Marquee. This is a community event and entry is open to home bakers of any skill level.

Why not enter one of our adult or children’s categories, or come and support us during the cake sale following the competition. Funds raised during this event will be split between Chudleigh Pre-School (reg. charity 1028874) and Alexa Rett Cure (

The categories are:

  1.  Signature – Sponge/family cake: a family-favourite, delicious sponge or tray bake. It is not necessarily about finish, more about taste.
  2. Technical – 6 Sweet or Savoury Scones: focus on taste, appearance and texture.
  3. Showstopper – Celebration Cake: an iced or themed, highly decorated cake that has been beautifully finished and decorated.
  4. International/regional bake: we are looking for interesting and well executed international and regional bakes.

The categories for children are:

  1. Cupcake: 1 decorated
  2. Gingerbread person/figure: 1 decorated

Children under 8 will only be judged on appearance and therefore shop bought cakes (that are home decorated) are accepted. Children over 8 will be judged on taste and decoration and are also welcome to enter their own bakes into the general categories if they so wish.

Taking part is easy – just bring along your entries for registration at the Chudfest Marquee (behind the church) on Sunday 5th July between 12:30-14:00. Cost is £1 per entry for adults and 50p per entry for children. We would like to sell the entries as part of our fundraising event following the judging, however if you wish to take your entry home please let us know.

The Marquee will be closed from 14:00-15:00 where judging will take place by a variety of judges from the local community.

At 15:00 the marquee will re-open to the public and the winners will be announced. From 15:00-16:30 there will be sale of hot and cold refreshments and competition entries as well as a range of free children’s activities, including:

  • Face painting

  • Gingerbread decorating

  • Colouring in

  • Demonstration of cake decorating from a professional

  • PyjamaDrama sessions for the children

Bring your whole family for a lovely afternoon and support this local fundraising event.

Happy baking!
