Bake a cake for Beeston. Tesco competition.

This cake making competition 'Bake a Cake for Beeston' was run as part of the Beeston Food and Drink Weekend and for those who don't know Beeston near Nottingham it has a famous statue on the high street called The Bee Man and the locals are very fond of this local character. Thus he was reflected in many of the entries for the cake making comp.

The local Mayor of Broxtowe, Iris White judged the competition and was delighted with the very creative entries. Manager of the competition - Stephanie Wilkinson was also in attendance as was Linda Lalley community officer for Tesco extra Beeston.

The main two winners of the competition were declared as Josie McCullen with her 'Let's Go to Beeston' cake and she got a £30 first prize. The second prize of £15 went to John Draper with his Bees Ton cake creation.

The food and drink festival continues in style tomorrow with a farmers market on the Beeston Market Square and various local cafes and pubs offering taster sessions and meal deals. The streets of Beeston are going to very musical as well with musicians performing all around the town as part of Oxjam.

Tesco Beeston Extra are also going to town by providing free taster sessions in store from 12pm to 3pm and I will be going out and about with my camera seeking out the best of the Beeston Food and Drink Weekend.
