Great Apple Bake-Off celebrates Island culture

Wednesday 15 October 2014

Islanders suffering withdrawal symptoms now the Great British Bake-Off’s rolling pins have been hung up until next year, are being invited to take part in a local cake challenge.

As part of this year’s La Faîs’sie d’Cidre at Hamptonne at the weekend, Jersey Heritage is holding a great apple cake baking competition.

Judging will take place at 4 pm on Sunday, when the cakes will be tasted, then winners announced and prizes awarded in two categories - adult and under-16. The cakes will be judged on appearance, originality and flavour and anyone who fancies themselves as a baking champion must get their bake to the Island’s Country Life Museum on Saturday 18 October.  

This year’s festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm, with an extension to 7 pm on the Saturday evening for musical entertainment.

Sponsored by Jersey Tourism and now in its 19th year, La Faîs’sie d’Cidre is an essential date in the community calendar.

Islanders and visitors alike can experience some of Jersey’s oldest traditions, enjoy live entertainment, sample Genuine Jersey produce and adults can taste speciality ciders and perry from CAMRA (Jersey), Cidre dé Jèrri from La Robeline Cider, samples from the Jersey Cider Orchard Trust and last year’s Hamptonne vintage cider.
