Old days revived at Tassie Baking Show

Old days revived at Tassie Baking Show

A record number of entries this year has seen the old days revived at the Tassie Baking Show, held at the James Boag Brewery in Launceston on Wednesday, October 13.

Both interstate and local judges were on hand to judge a whopping 422 pieces of product from over 60 bakery exhibitors, with the Baking Association of Australia (BAA) saying it was a wonderful effort by the sponsors and the BAA Tasmania committee.

Among the show’s stand-outs was Brighton’s Best Bakehouse with seven first place awards, six second places, four thirds, and also taking out the top spots for Champion Pie of the Show (Jamie Lacy) and Champion Cake/Pastry (Crystal Stewart).

Brighton’s Best’s Karl Nichols also took out the Ian Freeberg Perpetual Trophy.

The bakery posted gushing praise for their winning entrants on Facebook:

“We are so super proud of our team at Brighton’s Best Bakehouse who took home a huge amount of awards at the BAA Tasmanian Baking show yesterday. (22 in total but who’s counting),” they wrote.
“We also took home 3 of the larger awards, including Champion Pie of the Show, Champion Cake/Pastry of the Show and the massive Ian Freeburgh Memorial Trophy.
“Huge thankyou to the team and everyone who put the time and effort into entering, Crystal, Jamie, Karl, Simon, Isaac, VB, Ryan, Kara and Maddie.”

Other prominent winners and place-getters included Cottage Bakery, McCarthys Bread Lounge, Trevallyn Gourmet Bakery, Banjo’s and Bakers Delight—with the Champion Loaf Of The Show (David Cripps Trophy) going to Bakers Delight Mowbray.

The afternoon was finished off with the presentation of awards and the large crowd enjoying some light refreshments.
