Calling all master chefs for the Great Village Bake Off

2015-07-08
The Manchester-based Village Bakers are inviting you to bake it, bring it and share it, at their 3rd annual Great Village Bake Off. The LGBT social group was formed in 2012 as a small group of friends getting together once a month to eat homemade cake and have a drink in a relaxed environment - since those early days, they've gone from strength to strength. DSC_9303 As one of the highlights of Superbia 2015 the Great Village Bake Off is set to be a fabulous afternoon full of cake, pastries and savoury treats which are guaranteed to have no soggy bottoms. The format of the bake off is as easy as pie: sweet or savoury. Bake whatever you like and bring it along to the Molly House at 1pm on the 23rd August, the only limit is that it must fit through the door! Entry is free, but all they ask that you make a small donation to Manchester Pride. Prizes will be awarded for the Best Sweet Treat and Best Savoury Snack with bonus points being awarded for campness and creativity, along with the highly coveted Star Baker award. This is your chance to enjoy a good mouthful of cake before the Manchester Pride Big Weekend so get the oven pre-heated, take your whisks out the drawer and flour these buns for your chance to win. 558021_10151529946971734_280083470_n “Drag Queens and day time don’t generally get along but I was more than happy to put my nocturnal lifestyle on hold to host this all important community event," says Manchester's own Misty Chance, who'll be hosting the event for the first time. "The Village Bakers team and their work has always fascinated me, so much so, that one year I even entered a cake despite being totally inept at baking. These types of events give the LGBT community a wonderfully warm dimension and demonstrate that it’s not all about clubbing and getting drunk. The Molly House is a personal favorite of mine on the Manchester gay scene and I can’t wait to see - and sample - this year’s entries.” Tickets: www.greatvillagebakeoff2015.eventbrite.co.uk Follow the Village Bakers on Facebook and Twitter More Pride info: To book Exclusive Gay Travel packages visit Marriottweekends.co.uk/pride.
