The Bobby Goldmsith Foundation’s annual Bake-Off comes of age on Sunday 15 June, celebrating 21 years since its inception.

The annual charity event, which raises funds for people living with HIV, is expected to entice about 1500 people to the Midnight Shift, with promises of prizes for the best tart, best smallgoods, best non-edible cake and the Sydney Star Observer-sponsored best decorated cake.

For those who don’t feel comfortable donning an apron, the appeal of sinful baked goods and flavoured vodka shots is sure to be more than enough to lure you to the event.

As it’s hosted by Mitzi Macintosh and features a drag cabaret organised by Cleo Coup?you can rest assured that any excess calories put away on the night will be laughed off.

BGF president Bev Lange said all funds raised would go to BGF’s direct financial assistance program.

The Bake-Off remains successful because it stays true to its origins as a community-based event, she said.

People look forward to baking their cakes or smallgoods for the competition, knowing that the money raised in the auction afterwards goes towards our clients.

It’s always been great fun too, with some outrageously colourful entries and hilarious entertainment.
