It’s not exactly the “Great British Bake Off,” but QCC’s Alumni Association Bake-Off on Wednesday, February 12, has all the makings of an exciting, tasty and good-natured competition. Students, faculty and staff are invited to enter their homemade baked goods for the chance to earn bragging rights as QCC’s Best Baker! The best part  of the Bake-Off is that when you are folding, stirring and beating yourself into a baking frenzy, you will be doing it for a great cause. All funds raised will go to the QCC Alumni Scholarship Fund, for students in need. Couple this with prizes for the top three bakers at each location and you have yourselves a recipe for success! Love to bake, but not interested in competing? Donate to the QCC’s Alumni Association Bake Sale that will be going on during the Bake-Off competition.

This mouth-watering event will take place simultaneously at QCC’s main campus (107A, Administration Building) and also at the Healthcare and Workforce Development Center, 25 Federal Street, Worcester,  in the lobby. All baked goods being judged should be cut up into bite-sized pieces and dropped off between 8:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. at either the main campus, or the downtown location. Recipes must be included, with a list of all ingredients.

Will you crumble under the pressure, or will you take the cake? The only way to find out by registering online by February 5 and get baking (bake sale bakers are also asked to register)!

Judging will take place in both locations between 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. All entries are FREE and the QCC community will be the judges! Anyone in the QCC community can stop by and be a judge.

To be a tasty tester and vote for your favorite, simply stop by either location until 2:00 p.m., sample the treats and cast your vote for your favorites. The cost to be a judge and taste test these delectable treats is $1 for students and $2 for faculty and staff. Not interested in being a judge, but looking for a little sweet treat? Stop by and check out the bake sale and take home something delectable for yourself or the family.
