Unless you live literally under a rock, you’ll know that last week marked the start of this year’s Great British Bake Off – one hour every week of pure loveliness, all drizzled in lemony syrup and dusted with icing sugar. (This year I plan to be prepared, and buy appropriate snacks in advance, so that I’m not left in that awful situation of watching 128 cup cakes being made, and only having rice cakes and bananas to eat.)
To celebrate, Renshaw are hosting their very own annual baking fiesta, giving away cool prizes every single week. I’ve got lots more information about the competitions here, but do bookmark this page and check back every week, as I’ll be updating it with details of each week’s giveaway.
A bit about the Great Renshaw Bake Off
The Great Renshaw Bake Off is an annual celebration of the UK’s favourite baking show. Over the nine weeks that the show runs, they’ll be inviting their followers to take part in quizzes and competitions that give them the chance to show off their baking know-how and skills.
What kind of competitions are they running?
There are loads of opportunity for bakers to test their GBBO skills and knowledge in quizzes, (who doesn’t love a quiz?), and to share their cake designs, baking techniques and creative abilities. They’re also inviting users to supply witty cake captions and hunt the hidden icing. It’s all going on.
What prizes are up for grabs?
Over the next eight weeks they’re giving away £100 to spend at a favourite supermarket, as well as Craftsy Workshop vouchers, tickets to Cake International, a Cassie Brown Airbrush Kit, a cake frame starter kit, an Empire Red KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer and many-a packed Renshaw hamper.
