rinity Hospice is looking for local star bakers who fancy their chances at being crowned the Fylde coast’s ultimate baking champion, and walking away with a top-of-the-range mixer.

The Bispham based hospice has launched the first ever ‘Great Fylde Coast Bake Off’, which is being fronted by TV baking star Rosie Dummer from Channel 4’s Extreme Cake Makers.

It’s a competition for everyone across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre to host their own bake-off event, inviting their baking buddies to enter their most delicious creation which will then be judged by the host’s family, friends and colleagues. The winner will be invited ‘The Great Fylde Coast Bake Off Grand Final’, to be held at Trinity Hospice on Saturday 6th July where the overall winner, and the baker who shows the best flair for design, will be announced and presented with a Kenwood Chef XL mixer.

Local hosts are asked to use their events to raise money for the hospice, either by charging a fee for bakers to enter their cakes, asking for donations from guests, by holding a raffle during their event or any other imaginative way they can to support local hospice care.

Rosie, who will be chief judge at the Grand Final with a team of assistants, said ‘I am so excited to be involved in this first Great Fylde Coast Bake Off. It’s such a fun way for people across the area to get involved in their local hospice, and I just can’t wait to taste the best cakes the Fylde coast has to offer.’

Rosie added ‘Trinity is a charity which is so close to so many people, and every penny raised through this wonderful competition will mean so much to every single person who will call for its care in years to come.  Obviously I am a big fan of baking, and I know how great it is for bringing people together. I’m looking forward to hearing how the local bake off events go, and welcoming all their winners to the hospice in July for what will be a jam-packed, family fun afternoon.’

Rosie is also offering a helping hand by way of her recipe for mouth-watering white chocolate buttercream to everyone who signs up to host a local bake off event.

Trinity’s Head of Fundraising, Linzi Warburton, said ‘This competition is a first, not just for Trinity Hospice, but the Fylde Coast, so we’re really excited to be launching it this year. We really hope as many people as possible sign up to host their own bake off events so we can get a real feast of cakes at our final later in the year. We’re so pleased to have Rosie and her exceptional talents join us for this competition. She really is the icing on the cake.’
