The Great Northumberland Explorer Bake Off

Have you ever watched a certain bake-off show on TV and thought to yourself “I’d definitely get a Paul Hollywood handshake if I was on there!”?

Well, now’s your chance to show off your culinary skills and compete against your fellow Explorer Scouts across the County.

We know how difficult it is to get hold of certain baking ingredients at the minute so if your cupboards are lacking in flour, eggs etc. don’t worry, you can still take part it will just take a bit of creative, thinking outside the box on your part.

There are 3 challenges as part of The Great Northumberland Explorer Bake off:

Challenge 1 = Create something Savoury

Challenge 2 = Create something Sweet

Challenge 3 = Create a Showstopper, something to make us go WOW!

Judging will take in to account the appearance of your creation (including creativity), the size (how many people it can feed) and ingredients used.

Obviously we can’t taste anything at the moment so we’ll just take your word that whatever you make tastes awesome!

To help us judge your creations, we need you to send us 3 photos per challenge; a photo of your ingredients (before you start making/baking), a photo of you hard at work and lastly, a photo of your final item.

Dates for entrants:

Challenge 1 = Starts 1st May with all entries needing to be submitted no later than 8pm 10th May

Challenge 2 = Starts 10th May with all entries needing to be submitted no later than 8pm 20th May

Challenge 3 = Starts 20th May with all entries needing to be submitted no later than 8pm 30th May.

Send all entries to Explorers@northumberlandscouts.org.uk along with your name & Explorer Unit
