IF you think you’re the next Mary Berry then show off your skills at a bake off challenge next month.
Winthrop Gardens in Wickersley will be holding its fourth Great Winthrop Bake Off on Saturday, April 6, as part of a day of activities and fun.
People are invited to present their culinary masterpieces at the event in the hope of winning a prize.
The event at Winthrop Gardens, which is on Second Lane off Morthen Road in Wickersley and run by Wickersley Parish Council, will be raising money for both the popular attraction and Marie Curie Rotherham.
This year there will be four categories in the Bake Off — Cakes and Buns, Scones and Biscuits, Jams and Marmalades, and Pickles and Chutneys.
There will be eight prizes of vouchers for Winthrop Vintage Afternoon Tea for two — winners in two age groups for each of the four categories — and entries can be dropped off at the Winthrop Tea Rooms on either Friday, April 5, between 3pm and 6pm or on Saturday, April 6, between 8am and 9am.
Entry forms for the Bake off are available by telephoning 07397 039226, emailing email@example.com or calling in at the Winthrop Tea Rooms.
Entries are encouraged from everyone, young and old, and it costs nothing.
The event will take place between 11am and 3pm.
Visitors will be encouraged to sample the entries in return for a donation to the causes.
Cllr Sue Ellis, chair of Wickersley Parish Council, said: “We are delighted to be partnering again with Marie Curie Rotherham.
“Our annual free-to-enier Great Winthrop Bake Off is a very popular local event and showcases some very talented bakers.”
Sue Pearson, chair of Marie Curie Rotherham, said: “We are delighted to be working again with Winthrop Gardens in this our final event of our 2019 Great Daffodil Appeal.
“There will be a range of Marie Curie products available for sale and a few other activities as we try to put the fun into fundraising.”
