It's Koekedoor time, Enter your Cake and win!

July 14, 2016

The popular Koekedoor team is coming to Stellenbosch on the 23rd of July, to add fun and zest to our Chocolate and Orange Cake Festival. We are hosting a unique event, combining the long-awaited launch of Errieda Du Toit's "Koekedoor 2" Baking book with a "Chocolate & Orange" themed Cake decorating competition, where anyone and everyone can enter their decorated cake to be judged and displayed in our foodie heaven hall. The focus will be squarely on creativity and decoration skills. The Koekedoor team will be our panel of judges, and visitors to our Stellenbosch market can expect to rub shoulders with some of the popular show's creators and cast members. The cake decorating competition is also open to junior decorators, so boys and girls who think they have what it takes are also able to enter. Proceeds from the (R50) cake entries will go towards the "Cupcakes for Kids with Cancer" charitable organization.

We are lining up several excellent prizes to be won, as well as official bragging rights, endorsed by our prestigious panel of judges. Entrants are free to take creative license and express their interpretations and understanding of the theme in any way that makes sense, provided oranges and chocolate form part of their created cake. Entering is easy- simply send your name, email and contact number along with the word "Cake" to: chocolateandorangecake@gmail.com

 

In addition to the above, all of our traders have also answered the call to get creative with the theme. Market visitors will find oranges and chocolate expressed in many different ways as they meander from stand to stand, meeting our quirky, characterful traders in person as they go. Artisanal chocolates, Orange-infused macaroons and preserves, chocolate-branded shoes all provide subtle hints of what is to come at the market.

 

We also encourage all market visitors to dress with some hint or influence of the colour Orange on the day. We are so excited to see you there!

 

Keep following us as we head into what promises to be an amazing "Chocolate & Orange Cake" festival at the end of July. For our Afrikaans readers, we have taken the liberty of adding the following information "in Afrikaans" for your convenience:

 

KOM SPOG MET JOU VERSIERDE KOEK BY DIE STELLENBOSCH SLOW MARKET EN SIEN OF JY ‘N KOEKEDOOR SE HART KAN STEEL

 

Donderdae aande was ons almal vasgenael voor kykNet se Koekedoor en het ons mos geglo ons kan koeke net so goed bak en versier soos die deelnemers. Nou is die tyd om dit te bewys! Met ‘n tema van sjokolade en lemoen nooi ons jonk en oud om te kom spog met jou kreatiewe koekskepping op Saterdag, 23 Julie by die Stellenbosch Slow Market.

  

Met Koekedoor-koors wat nog hoog loop nadat seisoen 2 sopas geëindig het, kan besoekers uitsien om top 3-finalis Sanet Eigelaar (‘kom ons bak ‘n ding’) sowel as die übertalentvolle Kanya Hunt (koningin van sjokoladewerk- en spuitsak) te ontmoet. Saam met die geliefde Koekedoor beoordelaar Mari-Louis Guy en Errieda du Toit, skrywer van die reeks se Koekedoor-boek en inhoudsvervaardiger, gaan hulle besluit wie se koek gaan koning kraai.

 

Dit sal ook die eerste publieke bekendstelling van Human & Rousseau se nuwe Koekedoor 2 bakboek wees en aanhangers van die reeks kan uitsien om saam met die bekendes skouer te skuur asook om met ‘n selfie en ‘n handtekening te spog. Koop sommer ook ‘n Koekedoor 2-bakboek en laat die koek-koninklikes jou boek teken. 

 

Vir die kompetisie is die  klem op versiering en diegene wat graag hul vernuf met ‘n koek wil kom vertoon kan registreer deur ‘n e-pos te stuur aan chocolateandorangecake@gmail.com. Deelnemers (van enige ouderdom) moet egter by die sjokolade en lemoene / oranje tema hou. Inskrywings is R50 ten bate van die liefdadigheidsorganisasie Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer, en lekker pryse is op die spel - insluitende ʼn getekende Koekedoor 2 boek, ‘n koopbewys van R1 000 om by The Baking Tin te spandeer, en veel meer.
