MASTERCHEFS showed off their biscuit baking skills yesterday at the Kirky Bickie Bake-off.
The second annual bake-off at the Kirkstall Hall had more than 50 entries.
Semke Walraven took out the top prize in the open biscuit section while Millie Kearney’s biscuits were placed first in the 11-15-year-old age group.
Young baker Keely Waterson was victorious in the six-10 age group and Leeyn Wright’s decorated biscuit took out the under six category.
The bake-off was a fund-raiser for the hall committee, with money raised going towards the refurbishment of the kitchen. The biscuit eating competition was won by Monique Brown who scoffed three biscuits in the quickest time.
About 60 people attended the popular community event and visitors also enjoyed Devonshire tea.
Hall committee president Leah Brown was pleased with the large number of entries. Mrs Brown said the biscuit bake-off came about when the committee was trying to find ways to raise money while keeping costs minimal.
“It brings the community together,” she said.
