Prizes galore up for grabs at BGF Bake-off

The Bobby Goldsmith Foundation has announced the auction prizes available at its annual Bake-Off, to be held at Slide Bar on Sunday, June 19.

Prizes on offer for winning bakers include everything from theatre tickets and luxury fashion items to a collection of X-rated sex toys.

“The prizes on offer this year are a great mix, from outrageous items from the Toolshed to a champagne cruise for 10 on Sydney Harbour,” president Martin Walsh said.

Also up for grabs are pieces of collectible sporting memorabillia (signed NRL and AFL jerseys) and tickets to productions by Bangarra, Griffith Theatre, Belvoir and The Last Emperor ballet at the State Theatre.

Competitors can enter their culinary creations into one of eight categories: Best Cake, Best Cake (Professional), Best Decorated Cake, Best Fete Baking, Best Preserves (Jams and Pickles), Best Tart, Best Non-Edible Cake and the new Best Cupcakes category.

Guests at the Bake-Off will be entertained by hostess Verushka Darling, plus entertainment from DJs, drag queens, singers and El’Circo acts, complementing the circus theme of this year’s event.

The move to Slide has reduced BGF’s costs, as the venue has the infrastructure already in place to display the cake entries and hold the auction, ensuring more money that would have otherwise been spent on the event can go to client services.

Competitors’ entry forms must be received by 5pm on Wednesday, June 15, with cakes to be delivered to Slide between 11am and 12.30pm on the day of the Bake-Off. All cakes will be auctioned or sold as slices. All proceeds from the event will go towards programs supporting people with HIV.

A $15 donation at the door applies for those attending the auction. The Bake-Off runs from 2–6pm.
