It’s week 4 of the Great Irish Bake Off Challenge. We have a winner from Week 2 and the judges have set us a new task.
Last week’s challenge was to bake either a treacle tart or a classic Tarte Tatin. We had loads of entries and everybody took the multiple photographs in good spirit. My poor computer nearly clapped out but we do have a winner. Who by now has recognised their picture above!
Well done Andy from the Baking Bachelor Foodblog. It was a unanimous verdict with all 3 judges remarking on your even bake & latticework. Please email me directly with your address and telephone contact details so that I can arrange for the lovely people from Dr Oetker Baking Ireland to dispatch your prize (see below).
We had so many entries in fact that I’m not going to be able to put up all the photographs, instead I’ve compiled a quick collage of the best bits.
Other bloggers who participated & blogged about their baking endeavours this week are:
This is a blog/tweet hop but is not restricted to bloggers or tweeters. In order to enter you must either tweet me ( @wholesomeIE ) using the hastag #GIrishBO your picture of the recipe of the week or email me your photo. If you’re a blogger or aren’t on twitter and wish to enter, please also email me wholesomecook(at)gmail(dot) com details of your blog so that I can link to your website and give you full credit.
Week 3 Challenge
After a little chat from the judges we have decided to again give two options this week. You must either complete the technical bake from last night – i.e. Creme Caramel – click on the name to be brought to the BBC Food website and recipe. OR
You can bake a showstopping layered meringue cake, as OTT as you like.
Either way the judges will require the following shots of your bakes to see how you got on during the week:
- Your bake from above
- Bake from the side
- A shot of a slice (or a spoonful in the case of the creme caramel)
As you bake in the week ahead use the hashtag for advice and any questions.
Remember this is a bit of fun to challenge your baking skills. Don’t take it too seriously but do enjoy yourself and we are really looking forward to seeing your efforts this week!
