Cairns Show Cake Competition Proves a Winner

@JCU Cairns Show Cake Competition Proves a Winner

In an exciting new development in JCU cake baking, Cairns staff have, for the first time, entered the annual Interdepartmental Cairns Show Baking Competition. Each year, people from different State and Commonwealth Government departments enter the same baking category at the Cairns Show – it is basically a competition within a competition.

This year’s category was the gloriously named ‘Any Other Cake not Mentioned - Must be Named - Iced Lemon Tea Cake’ category. A small JCU delegation entered aiming to take out the win. The winner gets gloating glory, a magnificent interdepartmental sifter trophy with their name engraved on it, rights to choose the next year’s baking category and $8.00 in prize money from the Cairns Show.

All JCU entrants were “Highly Commended” for their efforts by the Show judges.
