Spring Fling and Bungo Bake-Off Success

This year’s Spring Fling, which hosted the first ever Bungo Bake-Off, was a great community success. Over 200 people made it along over the course of a beautiful morning to a packed Queens Park Baptist Church to enjoy a variety of craft stalls and consume a LOT of tea and cake.

The Bungo Bake-Off competition grabbed the imagination of budding bakers in the area and 13 cakes were entered. There was an array of wonderful cakes on offer and we really were amazed at the effort people made! Thanks so much to everyone who entered, though a special mention goes to the winners:

Sharon Schwepps (1st prize)

Polly Le Grand (2nd prize)

Alison Crystal (3rd prize)10418254_10153244275266735_1902092788938897553_n

Alexander Thomson (Children’s prize winner)12042709_10153244275476735_2561737577910276798_n

They won prizes kindly donated by Gusto and Relish, Locavore and Rock n Rollers.

With so many cakes in the competition and tonnes of home baking made for the Spring Fling, we were still left with a lot of sweet treats at the end of the event. Not wanting it to go to waste, all leftover cake and biscuits was donated to Oxton House Care Home in Marywood Square and Glasgow City Mission.

We’re already thinking how we can better the Spring Fling for next year and possibly expand upon that baking competition….

Countdown to first Bungo Bake off!

cakes

We are delighted to announce the full range of prizes for lucky winners of the first ever Bungo Bake-Off to be announced on March 19th at the Spring Fling…..
For adults, the top prize is a voucher for lunch for two at Gusto and Relish, our wonderful local eatery, plus the fabulous opportunity to work with James and his team as guest baker and for your Bake-Off winning cake to be sold in Gusto and Relish – (James has kindly suggested that proceeds go to the Strathbungo Society, so that is a great prize for us too!).

Second prize comes courtesy of Rock and Rollers, our neighbourhood hair and beauty salon, who have given a voucher for a cut and blow dry plus some lovely hair products for the runner-up.

And for the third prize winner, our inspiring local social enterprise Locavore has donated a £10 voucher for their shop, and we also have an additional prize – a box of assorted flavoured coffee beans, mug and coaster.

And for the children’s competition, we are delighted that Gusto and Relish will give the top three prize-winners a complimentary milkshake. They will also receive selected baking-related equipment – such as cup cake cases, whisk, cake book – from the Strathbungo Society.

Thanks to Gusto and Relish, Rock and Rollers, and Locavore for their support of the Spring Fling and the Bungo Bake-Off. The Strathbungo Society is really grateful for your kindness.

Locavore has also kindly offered 10% of baking ingredients bought in the shop that will be used in baking your cake/s for the Bungo Bake-Off. Thanks very much!
So, we hope that has inspired everyone to get baking!
