Solihull Cake Off Event Promotes Fair Trade In The Borough

Solihull held its very own version of the Great British Bake Off in conjunction with promoting Fairtrade in the borough at Solihull Arts Complex.  Staged ahead of Fairtrade Fortnight, the event involved members of the public to submit their cake creations in a variety of categories for judging by an esteemed list of judges.

Organised by Solihull Fairtrade, the Cake Off is in it’s third year and saw another bumper selection of entries from all age groups.  Judging came in the form of Andy Waters of Water Restaurant, Daryl Colins from the Genting Hotel and many more.

The event was organised to promote not only the use of Fairtrade goods (which some of the cakes’ ingredients were) but also the fact that Solihull is a Fairtrade borough and has been since 2010.  Many local companies also signed up to a Fairtrade pledge including CMA Video who produced this video.
