If you’re an Afternoon Tease follower you may recall that a couple of months ago, I attended an Iron Cupcake competition as an ‘eater’. It really inspired me and I was all set to enter the next competition as a ‘baker’. However, I never got the chance because the whole competition was cancelled thanks to some greedy rule breaking meanies who were stashing cupcakes in tupperware and taking them home!
You may wonder why I’m dredging this up? well…my 30th birthday is looming and instead of moping around and lamenting my disappearing youth, I am planning a big party to celebrate it. My plan is to have an evening filled with all the things I love best…food, music, drink, friends, family and of course…cakes, oh and a healthy dose of competition to top it all off!
I’ve decided that one shouldn’t make one’s own birthday cake so I’m throwing down the gauntlet to all party goers with…
There are 3 simple rules. All entries must be…
- Either a cake or batch of cupcakes
- Homemade (no buying in from the Hummingbird Bakery!)
- Delivered to the party venue by 8pm at the latest.
All cakes will be judged on 2 main criteria: appearance and taste. All party attendees will get a chance to taste and vote and the voice of the masses will be taken into consideration but the final decision will be lie with the core judging team…me and my Mum!
So, let The Afternoon Tease’s Birthday Cake Bake Off (TATBCBO for short) preparation commence! May the best baker win!
