One of the highlights of Superbia 2016 the Great Village Bake Off is going to be a fabulous afternoon full of cake, pastries and savoury treats which is guaranteed to have no soggy bottoms.

Hosted by non other than Manchester’s own Misty Chance who is excited to be hosting the event this year for the first time and said “Drag Queens and day time don’t generally get along but I was more than happy to put my nocturnal lifestyle on hold to host this all important community event. The Village Bakers team and their work has always fascinated me, so much so, that one year I even entered a cake despite being totally inept at baking. These types of events give the LGBT community a wonderfully warm dimension and demonstrate that it’s not all about clubbing and getting drunk. The Molly House is a personal favourite of mine on the Manchester Gay scene and I can’t wait to see (and sample) this year’s entries the competition is open to all baking abilities, all ages and all members of the LGBT community.”

Paul Duffy, Manager of The Molly House explained that “The Molly House is delighted once again to support The Great Village Bake Off which is a showcase for The Village Bakers, a hugely popular community and social group”

This year the format has slightly changed, there are 2 categories to enter. You can either enter the Beginners Cupcake category or Fairytale Creation. Bake it at home and bring it along to The Molly House for 1pm on Sunday 21st August.

The only limit is that it must fit through the door! Entry is free but we do ask that you make a donation to Manchester Pride at the time of entering on the link below.

Prizes will be awarded for the Best Cupcake and Best Fairytale Creation. Fairytale creations can be sweet or savoury, the only rule is they should have some fairytale connection. With bonus points being awarded for campness and originality the prizes and top spot Star Baker are yours for the taking.

This is your last chance to enjoy a good mouthful of cake before the Big Weekend so get the oven pre-heated, take your whisks out the drawer and flour the surfaces for your chance to win.
