Make your favourite bake for charity’s sake!
Join in our school’s baking competition and raise dough for charity with Buster’s Bake off. It’s easy as pie to enter and you could reach an exciting live Buster’s Bake Off regional final. You might even take home the champion’s trophy!
The bake off is a sponsored event with funds raised being split between literacy and road safety initiatives delivered by Inspire Schools / KM Charity Team.
Complete the application form below to download the resources to support your heat of Buster’s Bake Off. This will also register your school or club as wishing to take part in the event.
Your baking can include anything from breads, pizzas to cakes or pastries. Baking creations can be sweet or savoury.
How Buster’s Bake Off works
- Decide if students will bake at home, on school/club premises – or if both are allowed.
- Pick a date when students are invited to bring in their baking. We recommend a Monday so students can bake at home at the weekend.
- Ask teachers or club leaders to form a judging panel and use our assessment sheet to mark entrants and pick a winner of your heat.
- A responsible adult should be selected to gather in all sponsorship raised by entrants as well as their sponsor forms. If students need to keep a copy of their sponsor form then the responsible adult should give photocopies to the students and retain the originals. Funds should be banked by the organisation and a cheque posted, together with sponsor form originals, to: Inspire Schools, 10 Estuary View, Whitstable CT5 3SE.
- The responsible adult should complete the Feedback link on this web page to give us details of the winning dish and cook. This is what the judging panel will assess in order to decide which heat winners will be invited to the grand final of Buster’s Bake Off.
- Your heat should be staged prior to 1 July. This will allow the judging panel to assess heat winners and have issued invitations to the grand final prior to the summer holidays. The grand final will be staged in September to coincide the BBC’s Bake Off coverage on the TV! (Note: there is no link between the TV event and the charity event Buster’s Bake Off). The aim is to let finalists know in good time and to practice their baking creation over the summer holidays.
