Get your entries in for the National Association of Master Bakers’ Bakery Competitions to be held at Bakers’ Fair Spring.

Taking place at Newbury Racecourse on Sunday 10 April, the new event for 2011 will play host to competitions available to all bakers consisting of seven classes for bakers and three classes held jointly with the National Federation of Meat and Food Traders. The bakers’ classes include: a celebration cake inspired by the Royal Wedding; cupcakes; hot cross buns; crusty brown rolls; an 800g farmhouse loaf; a handcrafted 400g white loaf; and traditional sponge sandwich cake.

The joint categories will pit bakers against butchers in a contest to make the best hot crust pork pie, cold-eat meat pasties and six-inch sausage rolls.
