These two posts explain this years BAKING CONTEST and THE SUMMER PICNIC:

Last year Gary, the creator of A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent, had an amazing idea. Gary said, “Why don’t we have a bloggers’ bake-off?” Melody, the creator of Caramel (Learner at love), thought that was a fantastic idea so started planning with Gary. We asked the spectacular kitchen guru and baking legend Jeanne, the creator of A Jeanne in the Kitchen, to be our celebrity judge…and voila!

The 2019 GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF was an amazing blogging event. We loved every moment of it and were thrilled with the response from other bloggers. We have been looking forward to the 2020 BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF ever since.

However…this year many bloggers have reported challenges in obtaining baking essentials such as flour, eggs and baking powder. Do not despair! You will be delighted to hear that as well as the BAKE-OFF for all who are able to bake this year, we are also hosting a virtual summer picnic on WordPress.

That means that as well as the baking contest, there will be an international virtual picnic and we are asking all of you to bring something along! More details to come!!! Oh we are so excited!

Cue the annoying picnic song!!!

    1. It was hard to plan for a BAKE-OFF when we can’t find eggs or flour in the supermarket!
      But picnic food is so much more do-able for lots of us. 🙂
      It will be great fun!

      1. It will, indeed! I am thinking about making a cake (I know exactly which one I’d do) but neither Chéri nor I are big cake eaters… We’ll see 😉


    1. I have sent Jeanne some photos already. I need to spend more time tomorrow working on posts with all the photos we have received already. I am having great fun putting each post together.
      Jack and I are having a big debate about what he can make. I say rice and beans. That is what he is pretty much living on over there. I asked him to show some plantain or cassava too.
      We have had some amazing amazing photos Gary, but I am hoping we can also have more international flavours coming – I am counting on the likes of Irene and Sophie to give us a taste of Mexico and Greece. But the more international our picnic the better I think. Jack gets why I said African dishes would be a better choice than his signature pancakes.
