ARE YOU A “KOEKEDOOR”? ITS ALL ABOUT THE CAKE AT THE STELLENBOSCH SLOW MARKET COME SATURDAY, 23 JULY

 

We all remain fascinated by television food shows and believe that we can compete with the best of the contestants, including the highly popular Koekedoor on kykNet. Now it is your chance to prove that you are just as good at baking and decorating as the contestants of the highly acclaimed Koekedoor tv series on kykNet. Bake and bring your cake creation to the the Stellenbosch Slow Market on Saturday, 23 July 2016. 

With Koekedoor fever still running high after the recent conclusion of season 2, visitors can look forward to meeting top 3 finalist, Sanet Eigelaar as well as the uber talented Kanya Hunt, the queen of chocolate works. Together with the beloved Koekedoor judge Mari-Lous Guy and Errieda du Toit, content producer and author of the show’s Koekedoor book, the team will decide which cake is the most breathtaking and visually appealing of all.

 

It will also be the very first public launch of Human & Rousseau’s new Koekedoor 2 baking book and enthusiasts can look forward to rubbing shoulders with the television stars, taking a selfie with them and brag with an autograph or two. The Stellenbosch Slow Market will be the ideal location to purchase the book in order to get the royal family of cakes to autograph it.

 

With a delicious chocolate and orange theme, young and old are invited to come show off their creativity when it comes to cakes. The emphasis of the competition will be on decorating and those who want to showcase their expertise when it comes to cake creations can do so by sending an email to chocolateandorangecake@gmail.com. Participants (of any age) have to remain true to the chocolate and orange theme however. Entries are R50 per person – and all proceeds raised will be donated to the Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer charity. Great prizes are also up for grabs – including an autographed Koekedoor 2 book, a shopping voucher of R1000 to spend at The Baking Tin, and more.

 

Apart from the Koekedoor highlights of the day, visitors can also look forward to a variety of delicious surprises and produce fresh from the farm.  Furthermore, chocolate and everything orange will be celebrated on the day.  Come and be part of the fun,

 

There is no entry fee to the market and ample parking is available. For more information, visit www.slowmarket.co.za, call + 27 21 886 8514 or send an email to brand@slowmarket.co.za.
