Canberra cake creators are invited to enter online for the Canberra Centenary Cake Competition. Entries are now open for the contest which turns up the heat, in the kitchen, as competitive Canberra cooks battle it out for the ultimate title of Canberra’s Centenary Cake Champion.

Winners are to be announced at the Griffith Narrabundah Community Association (GNCA) Explore: Portrait of a Suburb Street Party, taking place adjacent to the newly named Blaxland Park in Griffith at the M16 Artspace, 21 Blaxland Crescent Griffith on Saturday 18 May 2013.

Cake bakers are urged to get their entries in now as this competition is sure to fill up fast. Applicants can register and find more information at www.gnca.org.au. Some great local prizes are up for grabs for the winning bakers.

A fun event for all the family, in this competition there are no “fussy” rules.  Participants are invited to bake something that is interesting and fun and above all, tastes good.  Entrants are free to design and bake whatever creation they wish and kids are encouraged to take part.

“There is sure to be lots happening on the day but the cake competition will definitely be a highlight”, said Diane Hinds, member of the GNCA Committee and competition organiser.

On the day, cooks will be battling it out in four categories; Professional, Adult Home Bake, High School/College/TAFE students and Primary/Pre-school entrants.

“Cakes will be awarded points for both taste and looks. After the judges have made their decisions and the winners are announced – the community will eat cake!” said Diane.

The competition will be judged by three extremely talented cake eaters, Canberra Times Social Photographer Lyn Mills, Father of the owner of D’Browes restaurant in Narrabundah, Deryk Browes and parochial Canberran cake eater and local business owner Todd Wright. They will be able assisted and overseen by Minister Shane Rattenbury MLA, who will be the Guest of Honor on the day.
