Charity bake-off event open to all
The African Diaspora Heritage Trail Bermuda Foundation is hosting a back-to-school bake-off with proceeds going towards the production of a colouring book.
With support from title sponsor Green Lite Café and Eatery, the event will take place at the Land Fall Restaurant on Saturday at 5pm.
Bakers of all ages will display their baked goods while sporting chef hats. Aprons will be included in the registration fee.
There will be three categories — adult, youth and family — and five different types of baked goods, including cupcakes, cookies, quick breads, vegan and healthy choice.
Maxine Esdaille, chairwoman of the ADHT, said: “An especially exciting first-of-its-kind competition will take place during the bake-off. This is a timed cake decorating competition.
“Local invited cake artists will have 60 minutes to decorate a cake in the back-to-school theme.”
Cakes will be judged by Jamie Carmichael of Dream Wurx Cakes and Bernard Stemphlet from The Chef Shop, International Imports.
By featuring sites of memory on the ADHT Bermuda trail, the colouring book will give children and families an opportunity to learn about each site.
“The colouring book will join with our annual day of remembrance lecture series, which is targeted at adults, as another very tangible way in which ADHT educates the community about the African Diaspora in general, and Bermuda in particular,” added Mrs Esdaille.
“This fundraiser will go towards the production of the book, which is being designed by talented artist Rickeesha Binns, who developed a similar one for the 200th anniversary celebration of Pilot Darrell in April.”
