Entry Fee

  • entry to the Brightwell Bake-Off is £10 and we would love each participant to fundraise for The Brightwell by selling their delicious bakes to family, friends, colleagues and class mates over the course of The Bake-Off competition.

How will The Brightwell Bake-Off be judged?

  • Each week bakers will be provided with a recipe and You Tube tutorial to support the weekly challenge.

  • The Bake-Off will be judged virtually by photos (one of the whole bake and one of a cross-section of the bake).

  • There will be a prize for each weekly winner, a prize for the overall Bake-Off winner and a prize for our star fundraiser. Points will be awarded for first, second and third place over the six weeks and the overall winner will be the baker with the most points.

Introducing the judges

Do I have to complete all the challenges?

  • you can submit an entry each week or only on the weeks that you would like to take part in. Don't worry if you miss a week. However, points make prizes and the more weeks you complete, the better your chance of winning.
