BGF Bake Off hailed a success

LAST UPDATED // Saturday, 09 August 2014 18:10 Written by // Cec Busby

Bobby Goldsmith Foundation’s (BGF) annual Bake Off was a huge success, raising $17,000 for people living with HIV/AIDS.

Hundreds packed into Imperial Hotel on Sunday, August 10, to see culinary creations ranging from the wild to the whimsical.

Taking home the top prize was Glenn Lewis (above), otherwise known as Miss 3D, whose Maleficent-inspired cake wowed the judges including Christina Batista, Martin Boetz, Adriano Zumbo and Claire de Lune.

A lively auction commandeered by Romany Brooks and proceedings emceed by musical theatre James Lee, who stepped in the eleventh hour to replace Patrick Abboud, kept attendees in the Basement Bar entertained.

“Bake Off was a huge success because so many people gave so much time, effort and love to make it so,” said BGF CEO David Riddell.

“Without community support we are all lost.  With it, we can all be heroes.

“This year’s Bake Off raised $17,000 that will go directly to provide care and support to the most disadvantaged people living with HIV across NSW.

“Thank you to everyone for contributing to a fantastic reboot of Bake Off. Here’s to next year!”
