With Once Upon A… Bake Off as the theme this year, contestants and guests are asked to keep  their favourite fairy tales in mind when decorating and to wish upon a star for that winning cake.

There’ll be fabulous prizes to be won and yummy cakes to take home This year’s Head Judge is once again our treasured reigning DIVA Hall of Fame winner the lovely Claire de Lune from Claire’s Kitchen at Le Salon, joined by Chistina Batista who placed 5th year’s Masterchef and Marty Boetz from Cooks Co-Op on the Hawkesbury River and ex head chef of Longrain to select the best of the best from each of the seven categories. There’ll also be a people’s choice award, best in show, best decorated and best fairy tale cake ….and of course the crowd’s favourite, the worst in show!!

We are also thrilled to announce that our very special guest judge is none other than the amazing Adriano Zumbo, one of Australia’s most celebrated patissiers famous for his delicious macaroons, five stores nation-wide, numerous cook books and many television appearances including his  terrifying Croquembouche challenges on Masterchef.

After judging the winning cakes will be auctioned off to the highest lucky bidder by our adorable auctioneer Romany Brooks. All other entries will be available for purchase by silent auction.

The Bobby Goldsmith Foundation turned 30 this year and it also marks its 27th a community event to raise money to support people living with HIV – practically, emotionally and financially.

David Riddell, CEO of Bobby Goldsmith Foundation said: “This year we’re hoping to make the Bake Off an even greater fundraising success so we can continue to provide vital and diverse services to our growing client base.
