The recipe for cooking success
CHECK out some tips to get the edge for the cooking section of the show.
1. To take a closer look at the cooking, download the section in the schedule. There are classes for under six years – icing and decorating arrowroot, Marie and milk coffee biscuits.
2. There are classes for six years to 12 years, boys and girls, to make pikelets, jam drops and vanilla bars to name a few. You can ask the chief steward for guidelines on all the cooking.
3. The teenagers, 13 years to 19 years, will have a new cake to bake – a poppy seed cake. There is also a boiled fruit cake to test you.
4. In the open section this year the challenge will be five new cake recipes. This includes an olive oil tea cake and a zucchini bar. The decorated cakes will be judged on Friday and an overall Champion Exhibit will be awarded.
