Great Irish Bake – The Best Bakes Competition!

Roll up roll up! Introducing the Best Bakes Competition, as part of the Great Irish Bake proudly supported by Gem Pack Foods! Throughout the month of June we will be asking you to submit photos using the hashtag #GIB2020. To be in with a chance of winning 1 of the 3 KENWOOD KMIX MIXERS kindly donated by Bake Diary, simply make your favourite cake, treat, dessert or dish! We have 3 categories that you can enter; Sweet Bakes, Savoury Bakes, and Family Bakes.

The winners will be chosen by our panel of judges, Corinna Maguire of Lovin’ from the Oven, and Daniel Byrne of Gem Pack Foods. The competition runs from Monday 1st June – 1pm Friday 26th June.

You’re welcome to enter into all three categories but they must be separate bakes and you can only win one of the categories.

Criteria for each category is as follows:

  1. Sweet Bakes: This can be any bake that would be considered a sweet food. E.g. Cakes, biscuits, pies.
  2. Savoury Bakes: This can be any bake that is not a sweet food. E.g. Breads, scones, savoury pies.
  3. Family Bake: This must be a bake (sweet or savoury) that is made and baked together as a family. This can be any kind of baked good as long as the family is involved!

As the judges unfortunately can’t taste your bakes they will be using the following criteria to pick a winner: Look of the whole bake, design, the look of the inside of the bread or cake, level of complexity, creativity of the bake.

To enter you must, be signed up to the Great Irish Bake for Temple Street, bake something and choose a category, take 2 or more photos of your whole bake and the inside, submit your bake by posting publicly on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #GIB2020 and the entry category hashtag i.e. #GIBSweetBake, #GIBSavouryBake, #GIBFamilyBake.
