Do your cakes have the Cake Factor?
In just a single day, I received news of two great events, both of which deserve to be supported. First up were a group of 3rd culinary students from DIT who are holding an Eat Only Irish night on May 2nd and will charge a mere €20 per head for an eight course tasting menu. More details here.
The second event comes courtesy of the Emerald Warriors (EWRFC), Ireland's gay rugby club, who will hold their 5th annual fundraising 'Tea Dance' and 'Bake Off'. Entertainment is guaranteed with Shirley Temple Bar, Veda Beaux Reves and Davina Devine hosting the event in The George Bar and Nightclub on Sunday, April 29th, between 3pm-6pm.

These fabulous ladies will don their pinnies, twin sets and pearls in order to serve up a delicious selection of home baked treats on dainty dollies. Guests will also enjoy a variety of entertainment in the form of a Make & Do Corner, a ‘Bake Off’ and old style ceili dancing all washed down with lashings of tea.
As part of the event the club is calling on amateur bakers to don their aprons for the annual ‘Bake Off’ competition. Contestants are invited to offer up a tasty baked treat which will be served on the day and judged by The George’s drag queens in a Cake Factor meets X-Factor style competition. Contestants will have to present their cakes to the judging panel who will determine if their offerings are worthy of the cake table. A selection of prizes are up for grabs for the best and worst cakes.
A fun day out for all ages, tickets for the event are priced at €10 and are available directly from The George bar or they can be booked online be emailing The Emerald Warriors Club firstname.lastname@example.orgAll funds raised will go to supporting the Emerald Warriors Rugby Club.
