The weekend of 11th and 12th March 2017 saw the 31st annual Squire’s Kitchen Exhibition.
Held in Farnham Maltings, the exhibition attracted people from across the country and was a celebration of all things sugar. With demonstrations on everything from creating chocolate flowers to watercolour cake painting, there was plenty to interest and inspire. The several competitions, including a show-stopping wedding cake category, proved just how much talent there is out there! Photos can be found on the Squire’s Kitchen facebook page.
For the exhibition, some of our former attendees learnt how to make sugar animals and entered the children’s cake competition. One of them even came third! Well done to all of the sugar crafters – your creations were amazing!
In addition, Squire’s Kitchen chose to raise money for Change of Scene. The fee for entering the ‘Farmyard Birthday Cake for Children’ was donated directly to the Charity.
Despite stiff competition, our very own Kim Field received Highly Commended for her entry, which was a great result for her first attempt. The cake tasted delicious too!
We were also delighted to be invited along to the Exhibition. All weekend, staff and volunteers from Change of Scene managed a stall where we raffled Paul Hollywood’s book ‘The Weekend Baker’, and a ‘choose a square’ competition which attracted a lot of attention. The prize for this was a hamper donated by Squire’s Kitchen, full of all sorts of decorating goodies. The book was won by Lynda Sheahan and the hamper by Sarah Francis. Many thanks to all who entered.
We would also like to extend our thanks to all at Squire’s Kitchen for a superbly planned and thoroughly enjoyable weekend. We have been amazed by the generosity of all and are deeply grateful for being chosen.
