Get In Quick To Become New Zealand’s Best Bun Baker
Bakers nationwide are being urged to get in quick if they want to be crowned New Zealand’s best Easter bun maker in this year’s Champion® Easter Bun Bake Off 2009.
Goodman Fielder Marketing Manager, Mark Killip, said registrations are set to close at the end of this month.
“So far, we have over 200 bakeries already registered including last year’s champion – the Ten O’clock Cookie Bakery Café in Masterton.
“Registration is free and entrants receive posters and display bins to put up in their bakeries.”
Bakeoff organisers have dispensed with public text voting this year, instead opting for a judging panel to determine the overall winner.
“Bakeries will need to be on top of their game if they want to satisfy the taste buds of an industry judging panel which will include foodie Annabelle White,”Mark said.
Judges will assess buns for: straight and over crosses; application of bun glaze; crust colour; symmetry and batching of product; crumb softness; even dispersal of fruit and; aromatic flavour.
“As with previous years, in order to be eligible for judging each bakery must use three Champion products, one of which must be either Champion Premix Hot Cross Bun mix or Champion Flour,” Mark said.
Bakeries can request a registration pack by calling 0800 11 0800 or registering online at
The overall winner of the Champion® Easter Bun Bakeoff 2009 is expected to be announced mid March.
