Sugarfree Bake Off a Success
On Wednesday 12th July REDHS hosted the 2nd annual Rochester’s Great Sugarfree Bake Off to celebrate National Diabetes Week. There were over 30 treats entered into the competition across 2 categories. The categories were ‘Young Bakers’ and ‘Baking Legends’. The only rule for the competition is that there was to be no sugar added to the dish.
We were lucky enough to have 4 quality judges with vast experiences in the food industry on hand for the day. These included REDHS CEO Anne McEvoy, Campaspe Shire Councillor Leigh Wilson, Mick Baker from the Rochester Wine Tavern, and Karen Latter from the Rochester Bakery.
The winner of the ‘Young bakers’ category was Sarah Warren with her delicious truffles. Unbelievably, this year we had a 4 way tie for the winner of the ‘baking legends’ category! Tied on 34 votes out of a possible 40 were Ann-Maree Hewlett (muesli slice), Kerry Gibson (carrot cake with cream cheese icing- ), Bev Hoffman (diabetic fruit cake) and Lyn Mussared (carrot cake balls).
This year we also had a people’s choice award which was voted on by those who were in attendance on the day. The winner of the "Young bakers’ people's choice award was Nate Mussared with his chocolate crackles and the very popular people’s choice winner for the ‘baking legends’ was Garry Baldwin with his tasty vanilla cake.
Thank you to everyone who helped with this event. We would love to expand the event and make it a permanent fixture in the REDHS calendar.
