Mas­ter chef in the mak­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - 2015 BIGGENDEN SHOW -

MON­ICA Hether­ing­ton now has a new Mix­mas­ter to cook up a storm in the fam­ily kitchen at Dal­larnil.

The 11-year-old took out the cham­pion cake in the ju­nior sec­tion at the Biggen­den Show with her pump­kin fruit cake.

Judge Bev Hib­berd, of Mary­bor­ough, had five cakes to de­ter­mine the cham­pion.

It was the even­ness of the fruit that tipped the scales Mon­ica’s way.

Mon­ica said she was happy and ex­cited to win.

“I will def­i­nitely use it and wear it out.

“I en­joy mak­ing cup­cakes and all sorts of slices.”

Her men­tors have been her mum Loretta and grand­mother Bev Mooney.

Choco­late cake must be a favourite for the un­der-12s as there were 15 in the class. Stew­ard Michelle Kin­bacher said it was a dif­fi­cult task to find a win­ner.

“It got down to moist­ness and taste, with Caitlin Cougan’s get­ting the nod,”
