Make a Fuss and get to Bake Fest

Bake Fest, Galway


This weekend over 10,00 baking enthusiasts are expected to visit the first ever Bake Fest Galway in Leisureland, and we’re incredibly excited!

Expect a weekend of sweet baked goodness, Ireland’s biggest baking competition, demos from some of Ireland best loved chefs, and of course we could not resist but get involved too!

The great thing about this event is not just the thought of a weekend surrounded by baked treats, but it’s also in the name of a very good cause. And before you ask, your sweet tooth is not a good enough cause! Bake Fest is being run in association with ACT for Meningitis, with all funds raised going towards the charity.

The event will run on Saturday and Sunday from 11am and is free to everyone, so make sure you bring the kids down!

Kai is sponsoring the gingerbread person decorating event(we’re so PC!) so make sure to pay us a visit and decorate your person!

Bake Fest is about a few different things, it’s about raising money for a very worthy cause, it’s about helping to preserve old traditions, but also to showcase the wealth of talent we have in both novice and professional bakers.

If you think you’ve got a winning Royal Iced Cake, or the best novelty cakes make sure to enter the Bake Fest competition, there are enough child, beginner and novice categories to make it worth your entering, and it’s not too late!

If you’re into celebrity chefs the guys have that box ticked for you too! The double Michelin chef whom Jess spent many years working with will be taking part in a demo along with BBC2’s Patrick Ryan, food columnist Lily Higgins, and TV3’s Edward Hayden.

The event is close to Kevin Thorntons heart as he will speak at the event about how his own son recovered after being diagnosed with Meningitis.

There will be also be demonstrations from celebrity chefs on everything from baking bread and cakes to making cookie monsters for the kids.
