A Plethora Of Cakes At The Great Brixton Bake-Off

Station Road will hope to take some of the attention away from Brixton Village and Granville Market tomorrow when they host the second Brixton Bake-Off.

Dozens of cakemakers will be baking their best efforts and bringing them along for sweet-toothed Brixtonians to sample. The event runs from 10am to 5pm, with a winner garlanded around 2.30pm. Much like last year's inaugural bake-off, the comestibles on offer will be judged across a range of categories, including cakes,  bread, savouries and vegan. Among the judges this year are the mayor of Lambeth, the MD of Patisserie Valerie and Levi Roots.

Given the rapturous reception her passing caused 'round these parts, we'll be surprised if at least one person hasn't baked a cake resembling Maggie Thatcher.

Brixton Bake-Off, Saturday 27 April, 10am-5pm. On Station Road, Brixton.

Enjoyed your article Dean. Baking is one of those things that takes lots of trying and patience, so always impressed with those who can produce something of such a high standard and be brave enough to show them to others!

Also for anyone looking to learn a bit more about baking and perhaps get involved in a baking class in London, then I would recommend a quick read of this related article:
