It’s the Great Bridport Bake Off! Could you bake a showstopper that represents Bridport for their #BakeBridport cake competition?

Bridport Museum and Bridport Food Festival are inviting people to show off their cake making skills in the #BakeBridport competition. Those that take up the challenge and step up to the mixing bowl have the chance to win a tasty prize too. The legendary Leakers Bakery have generously offered a lip-smacking £100 for the winning showstopper and £25 for the runner-up.

The #BakeBridport’s rules for entry are simple:

- Bake and decorate a cake inspired by a) a Bridport building or landmark b) your favourite Bridport Museum object.

- Take a photograph or a short video to share your creation and post it on the Museum’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feeds including the hashtag #BakeBridport to be included in the competition!

Cake entries can be posted any time until 30 June, and then a panel of independent judges will each pick their favourite entry based on its creativity and an overall champion cake declared. Winners will be announced early July.

Bridport Museum Director, Emily Hicks said: “We can’t wait to see what cakes are created: lemon drizzle Town Hall, a chocolate ropewalk or a coffee cake ammonite! It’s also a great opportunity to support our wonderful local businesses by buying your ingredients locally.”
