QCWA bake cake bat­tle

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

IT WAS aprons and ic­ing sugar at 20 paces last Fri­day as the Queens­land Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion held a de­li­cious cake and slice com­pe­ti­tion in Port Dou­glas.

The bake-off at­tracted 22 en­tries, in­clud­ing three men who chal­lenged for the ti­tle, with renowned show judge Jan An­der­son help­ing sift the best from the rest.

Kaz Harper earned the hon­our of cake queen with her zuc­chini ring cake beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated with a fresh flower.

In other cat­e­gories, Jeff Flem­ming earned a first prize for the boys with his egg­plant chut­ney while Pat Dono­van earned hon­ours in the new packet cake cat­e­gory with her iced car­rot cake dec­o­rated with fresh flow­ers.

Those who won first now have the op­por­tu­nity to en­ter at the next level, the QCWA Far North­ern Di­vi­sion, in Babinda next month.

QCWA pres­i­dent Port Dou­glas Jill Thor­ough­good said it was a fun day with some lovely cakes which were then auc­tioned off by Cen­tury 21 prin­ci­pal Phil Hol­loway.

‘‘Fun and fri­vol­ity pre­vailed with over $ 300 raised for the QCWA head of­fice,’’ she said.
