Local ingredients take the cake in bake-off

In the end barely a crumb separated the top two cakes in the Adelaide Hills Farmers Market’s inaugural contest.

Judging the inaugural Adelaide Hills Farmers Market cake contest were Mt Barker Mayor Ann Ferguson, Dirty Girl Kitchen founder Bec Sullivan and ‘Blue Ribbon Cookbook’ author Liz Harfull.

Home bakers and stallholders put their cookery skills to the test to whip up about 20 sweet delights showcasing some of the local produce on offer at the market.
The fruits of their labor were judged on Saturday by Blue Ribbon Cookbook author Liz Harfull, Dirty Girl Kitchen founder Bec Sullivan and Mt Barker Mayor Ann Ferguson.
Market manager Geraldine Conterno said the contest proved to be one of the market’s “highlights of the year”.
“It gave our community the opportunity to come together and showcase their baking skills and also to show how great Adelaide Hills produce is,” she said.
