Olympic gold medallist Matthew Mitcham will be the surprise judge at this Sunday’s BGF Bake-Off.

Mitcham will join Channel Ten’s Ready, Steady Cook presenter Peter Everett, chef extraordinaire Patrick Collins and iconic Sydney drag queen Claire de Lune at Paddington Town Hall to judge the culinary delights.

Amid a dust-storm of flour, frosting and flirty figurines, BGF’s longest-running community event starts at noon at Paddington Town.

Competitors have entered their wildest culinary creations into one of seven categories, including Best Cake, Best Cake (Professional), Best Decorated Cake, Best Fete Baking, Best Preserves (Jams and Pickles), Best Tart, Best Non-Edible Cake.

After judging finishes at 2pm, guests will have time to look at the beautiful range of delectable baked goods on display while being entertained by the cream of Sydney’s drag queen talents.

The event culminates with a live auction at 4pm, hosted by MC and auctioneer extraordinaire Mitzi Macintosh.
