Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE renowned cake mak­ers at the Port Dou­glas CWA trav­elled down to Tully for the QCWA north­ern divi­sion 58th Cook­ery Con­test and came home with an­other stack prizes.

The day also marked the 95th an­niver­sary of the QCWA and was cel­e­brated – with a com­mem­o­ra­tive cake.

The Port Dou­glas branch ex­celled – with 19 cake en­tries, Port Dou­glas achieved 16 firsts and three sec­ond places.

With 14 class’s in the bak­ing sec­tion, the choco­late cake win­ner was Port Dou­glas mem­ber Bev­erly Ros­sig­noli. The date loaf and gin­ger­bread win­ner was Jill Thor­ough­good and the packet cake cat­e­gory was won by Port’s Neil McBain.

The Best Cake was a fab­u­lous car­rot and wal­nut cake by Cris­tine Cas­tle.

Best slice was a de­li­cious cof­fee pecan by Cris­tine Cas­tle.

Ms Cas­tle fin­ished with over­all 12 firsts and three sec­ond places.

The Pre­serves sec­tion was no less com­pet­i­tive and Port Dou­glas Branch won all jams, rel­ishes, pick­les, chut­neys, and ap­ple jelly, ex­cept with sec­ond in the Mar­malades.

Port Dou­glas vice pres­i­dent Jill Thor­ough­good ac­cepted the Far North­ern Divi­sion Tro­phy for the branch that raised the most funds in the Cook­ery Com­pe­ti­tion from Jan An­der­son, who do­nated the tro­phy.

It was the seventh time the Port Dou­glas branch has won the ac­co­lade.

Port Dou­glas con­ducts a weekly Fri­day af­ter­noon cake stall from 1pm and Jill Thor­ough­good and Cris­tine Cas­tle sug­gest that lovers of cakes, jams and pre­serves should drop in, meet the win­ners and buy some fab­u­lous home made food.
