THERE were three gen­er­a­tions com­pet­ing in the home man­u­fac­ture classes at the Biggen­den Show

Dal­larnil’s Teresa Buch­bach won the dark fruit cake com­pe­ti­tion at Satur­day’s show, beat­ing her mother He­len Hether­ing­ton to the prize.

He­len wom the cham­pion pre­serve with her pas­sion­fruit but­ter while young grand­daugh­ter Char­lotte won the packet cake for un­der fives.

With her cham­pion fruit cake Teresa said she couldn’t get over how well it turned out.

Her tip to other cooks was to make sure you cut your fruit prop­erly.

Teresa said she learnt to make cakes from her mum who in turn had learnt from her mum, and noted Bund­aberg cake maker Mar­garet Kemp.

Both Teresa and He­len en­tered other home man­u­fac­ture classes.

“I won for my cheese­cake while (Mum won) with ap­ple pie,” she said.

Teresa has worked her way up through the ranks.

“I started in the home man­u­fac­ture at 14 as a ju­nior,” she said.

Last year she couldn’t en­ter at Biggen­den as she was help­ing her mother judge.

“I did win the rich fruit cake at Tee­bar Show,” she said.

She is now look­ing for­ward to an­other op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate at Bur­nett Sub-Cham­ber level be­ing held at Tee­bar on July 1.

In the ju­nior cook­ing, Ti­mothy Geissler won the mix­mas­ter.
