Each year we are lucky to be joined by an array of highly talented local producers as well as some of our favourite Celebrity chefs. This year we have the pleasure of welcoming Dean Edwards and Katy Ashworth who will not only be wowing us live on stage with family-friendly recipes, but will also be casting their eyes over the Big Bucks Bake Off 2019 hopefuls. Entries into the bake-off competition are open until Sunday 30th June, and after last year’s winner Aisha Tariq wowed celebrity judge Angellica Bell with her sensational Summer Berries Cake, I have the feeling we are in for a treat once again this time around!”
