We thought we would start 2013 with a cracker of an event and are going to hold East Meets West – The Scottish Cake-Off.
Why not start 2013 with a massive sugar high and dive in to a selection of the best cakes in Scotland?
The Edinburgh Cake Ladies have found a larger-than-normal venue to host lots of Glasgow Bakers, with the rest of the attendees made up of Edinburgh Cake Ladies.
What to bake
We want to see a showstopper cake from everyone attending that demonstrates the best of your baking ability.
We’re not going to be judging them seriously, but perhaps we will see who can produce the most amount of ‘wows’ in the room.
No cupcakes at this one please – we’re dreaming of a roomful of cakes!
How to get a place
If you want to join in on the baking fun, please send an email with your name, and what you would like to bake, to email@example.com, by December 01 2012.
The Edinburgh Cake Ladies will fill the rest of the places.
There are a total of 50 places available.
Well behaved children are welcome.
The venue is a relaxed hotel with a function room (which we will use) but any Glasgow Bakers that wish to do the journey with their partners/husbands/wives can leave them in the upstairs bar, where they’ll be kept company by friendly bar staff and a 42 inch TV on the sport channel.
When and where?
Date – 20th January 2013
Time – 2pm – 4pm
Where – 28 York Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3EP
As usual, teas, coffees and drinks will be purchased from the venue.
We will be setting up the room so that each table is a mixture of Glasgow Bakers and Edinburgh Cake Ladies. Let’s get to know each other over tea and cake!
