10am-2:30pm, Saturday 1 November 2014 at St Ives Corn Exchange

Following the success of the competition a year ago, All Saints Church will be hosting the second professionally judged Bake-Off competition at its annual Autumn Fayre in St Ives Corn Exchange on Saturday 1st November from 10am-2:30pm. This time the event will be split into two categories; a competition open to all comers and a junior competition open to entrants who are 14 or under.

Local people who fancy themselves as a star baker can bring their cake to be judged by the panel, which includes professional bakers from the local area and local dignitaries.

For an entry fee of £5, you can drop your cakes off between 10am and 11am on Saturday 1st November to be judged at the Corn Exchange for a chance to win a prize generously donated by the competition’s sponsors: John Lewis, Townrow and Hephers. The sponsors are delighted to support the St Ives Bake Off.

If you would like to enter a cake, you can download instructions and an entry form below:

or collect a form from the Corn Exchange on the day or in advance.

The Fayre is now an annual event in the town’s calendar and includes a vibrant programme of family fun alongside craft and gift stalls including jewellery, cakes, sweets, ‘nearly new’ bargains and Christmas gifts, a book stall, which includes a number of specialist railway books, as well as fun games from “Whack-a-Rat” to the lucky tombola.

A volunteer run café will serve great value hot and cold drinks, lunches and snacks throughout the day.

The Fayre is free to attend with proceeds from stalls and the Bake-Off going toward the activities of the church.

The parish church is here to serve the whole community of St Ives and we do this by a lot more than holding services. Activities such as the Foodbank, the Monday Munchkins parents’ club, as well as maintaining St. Ives’ ancient, beautiful Grade 1-listed church building are all ways in which we try to put something back. The Fayre and Bake-Off is a way that we can raise much-needed funds to ensure such activities continue whilst having a lot of fun at the same time.
