Didcot Street Fair Bake Off
15 and 16 November saw the first ever Didcot Christmas Bake Off! Contestants gathered at the Civic Hall to ‘prove’ how much they ‘kneaded’ to win the title!
The bake off was held over two days. On the first day, contestants brought in their creations from home and were judged in 7 different categories. The winners of each category were then sent home with a recipe to bake at home and bring in the next day for judging.
The first ever Didcot Christmas Street Fair Star Baker was judged to be 14 year-old Emma Culliford, who won the Victoria Sponge category on her way to the final.
The judges were Great British Bake Off contestant Christine Wallace and baking expert Lou Hatter who judged the 6 adult and 2 children’s categories and were impressed by the skills of the local amateur bakers.
