Actress, presenter and former model Linda Lusardi is to present the competition trophies at Bakers’ Fair Spring, so don’t forget to get your entries in.

Taking place at Newbury Racecourse on Sunday 10 April, the new event for 2011 will play host to the National Association of Master Bakers’ Bakery 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 and hot cross buns.
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.
