The Great Mylor Bakeoff is the initiative of Mylor local Sue Laundy.

Inspired by one of her favourite television shows, The Great British Bake Off, passionate baker Laundy says she wanted to create a small-scale local competition and encourage members of the Mylor community to get involved.

The event has taken six months to organise, with friends rallying to help.

Laundy says amateur competitions are a good stepping-stone for the Royal Adelaide Show. She has previously entered her own preserves in country shows.

“I was taught to cook by my grandma from a young age. I can’t say I’m the world’s greatest cook, but I love sharing my baking with other people – I get a real kick out of that.

“We are encouraging the locals to have a go, especially kids and men. We should all know how to bake and not be intimidated to do so – there’s a sense of pride in throwing a cake together.

“Everyone can bake. If you can read a recipe, you can bake.”

The Great Mylor Bakeoff offers 22 categories, including two for men and four for children. Entry forms are available from the Mylor General Store or by emailing Laundy on Closing date for entries is April 22, and the gold-coin entry donation will go to a local community group.

Judging will take place on April 30, and on Sunday, May 1,  winning entries will be on display at the Mylor Hall, where there will also be  garden stalls, old recipe books,  cooking utensils and cakes available for purchase.
