Seven Hills WI at Sheffield Food Festival 2014

Our 2013 Food Festival stall and GBBO’s James Morton!

It only seems two minutes since the last event but it’s time for Sheffield Food Festival again! The event has moved from its usual September date and will take place on May bank holiday. 

Like last year, we will be holding a traditional cake stall at this year’s event on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 May, from 10am until around 5pm (or until the cake runs out!) on both days. There will be a delightful assortment of cakes made by our wonderful members and a raffle on each day to win something special made by one of our star bakers! This year the event is taking place on the Moor and we will be located in the old Woolworth’s shop.

Our Best in Show competition will also be running once again, this time with four categories – Victoria Sponge, Strawberry Jam, Bread and new for 2014 – children’s decorated cupcakes. It costs £1 per entry, and all proceeds, along with all proceeds from our cake stall, will be going to our nominated charity, the Young Women’s Housing Project. See below for further information and the rules. 

We will be selling copies of the new Sheffield Cook Book which features lots of delicious recipes from around the city, including a recipe from us!  

We raised over £1,000 for charity last year – this was donated to the Parent’s Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia – and we hope that with your help we can beat that total and raise even more this year!

So, how can you get involved? Everyone loves cake so come along to our stall on 24 and 25 May (or both if you really love cake!). We’d also love it if you could enter our Best in Show competition, it’s all done in the name of fun but there are a few rules which you can find below.  SHWI members – we also need you to help us by baking lots of yummy cakes and volunteering to help on the stall, please email to get involved.

Here’s to a wonderfully successful Sheffield Food Festival 2014.
