Delicious bakes at disability group’s bake-off
ONE of the important things about Christmas is, obviously, cake.
The Great Christmas Bake Off was held recently in Shoreline, Greystones, with the town’s cooks baying for the proverbial blood on the day.
Judges Kate Doyle, Luan Parle and Cathaoirleach Tom Fortune were on hand with the nice job of deciding who would win this year’s prizes.
DAG: T (Disability Action Greystones-Together) organised the event for the second year running.
The categories were Most Delicious, Most Beautiful, Most Quirky, and another category for children.
Children were asked to bring along cookies, cakes or muffins for their competition.
Winners and runners up were delighted to take home the coveted trophies, rosettes and certificates for the prestigious contest.
There was also a fantastic raffle on the day.
The Happy Pear and Grey’s cafe also participated in the judging.
It was a great day for children and adults alike with a fabulous range of cakes and treats.
There was a wonderful turnout for the community event.
DAG:T is a group of disabled and non-disabled people who are working together to make Greystones a place that everyone can enjoy.
They aim to make the whole of Greystones a ‘Gold Star’ town, in other words accessible and inclusive for everyone.
The Greystones Gold Star awards will acknowledge businesses and community groups that take steps to make their businesses and facilities more accessible.
Similar schemes have already been very successful in Cashel and Wexford..
The group said that participating businesses will benefit by attracting new customers.
