Amateur Bake Off!


Call for home bakers!


Do you bake at home?  Is it delicious?  Has anyone ever told you that you would do well going head to head in a friendly amateur bake off?  Well, now here is your chance.  On Sunday, May 16th starting at 5:30pm the Fourth Arts Block (a do-gooder non-profit organization) is having an amateur Talent Show and Bake Off so that you can showcase your talents!  Sweet and savory treats both welcome.


Audience members will get to vote and the winner of each competition will get a fabulous prize!


Each baker will prepare 50 bites of baked goodness for audience members to taste and the audience will vote on their favorite sweet and savory items.  


Goods must be baked beforehand, not onsite.


To enter or for more information contact Helen Ho at helenshirley@gmail.com or 917-226-4466 with "FAB bake off" in the subject line.  Thanks! -Helen

Oh, sorry yes it is free for the bakers to enter. There is a small cover of $10 for non-bakers to come and enjoy the festivities!
