Baking experts take centre stage at Core Theatre this weekend

SOME OF Solihull’s best bakers will showcase their talents at the annual Fairtrade Cake Off this weekend.

A number of business owners and stars in the baking world will be judging the competition, including head chef at Hampton Manor Steven Hearn, and CBBC Bake-Off winner Amari Koryang.

The latest addition to the judging panel includes local businesswoman Claire Donuhue, director of the successful Claire’s Quality Cakes.

She said: “I am thrilled to have been asked to judge at Solihull’s Cake Off 2017.




“I am looking forward to seeing all of the lovely creations while supporting such a worthy cause.”

The borough was awarded Fairtrade Status in 2010, and is a proud supporter of the campaign which ensures farmers and workers from the developing world are treated fairly.


The baking bonanza will be held in the gallery at The Core Theatre in Solihull town centre.

Entry to the competition is free for all baking enthusiasts of all ages.

Categories at the event include cup-cakes and family favourites – all recipes of which must contain at least two Fairtrade ingredients.

Those wishing to take part in the competition must drop-off their creations between 11am and midday on Saturday, March 4 – judging will take place between midday and 1pm.
