URC Flour launches Flourish Pilipinas: Bake It Happen! Nationwide Baking Competition 2016

10:59 AM

Universal Robina Corporation (URC) Flour, one of the Philippines' top flour millers, recently launched its nationwide search  for the best bread and cake bakers in the country, Flourish Pilipinas: Bake It Happen! Nationwide Baking Competition 2016. To join the competition, Culinary Arts or Hotel and Restaurant Management course students are encouraged to submit original recipes in the Breads or Cakes categories


I was present at the media launch the other day and gamely participated in the mini-baking competition that was held during the event. I enrolled in a short baking course before (read about it HERE) but I don't bake often because I dread the heat in my kitchen! Of course, our baking station at the GalaStars Culinary School is better than what I have at home, so yeah, I was in a mood to bake. Konting parinig kay hubby, so he'll have our kitchen air-conditioned, haha!


Mommy Erica of www.stuckwith3.com was my partner for the day.
My partner for the day was Mommy Erica of www.stuckwith3.com. We were 10 teams in all (we were Team #2) and each team had to bake the same recipe of Chocolate Cupcakes. The catch, though, was that we had to incorporate Kiwi in our cupcakes. And though we didn't win, I was happy with our masterpiece. The cupcake was moist and evenly baked. Yun lang, I was never good at designing cupcakes, hahaha!


By the way, the winner of that day's baking competition were my dear mommy blogger friend, Mommy Pehpot of www.pehpot.com, and Mommy Myrns Roman.


Like in the mini-competition we had, baked creations of participants in Flourish Pilipinas: Bake It Happen! Nationwide Baking Competition 2016 should incorporate a non-functional inrgedient and make use of any of the URC Flour brands such as Blend 100 Flour, Continental All-Purpose Flour (this is the flour we used), Daisy Cake Flour, FibrA+ Whole Wheat Flour, Globe First-Class Flour, My Rose Soft Flour, and Sampaguita Soft Flour.

 


Teams will be shortlisted to compete in the Visayas/Mindanao and GMA/Luzon regional competitions. These will be held at the University of Mindanao in Davao City and Center for Culinary Arts in Manila. All finalists will be given a challenge and a surprise ingredient to use during the bake-off.

Trophies, certificates, and more than Php 300,000 worth of prizes await the winners while regional grand champions will also receive internships at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and will be featured at Yummy Magazine.

The complete contest details and mechanics, as well as downloadable entry forms, will be available at the Flourish Pilipinas 3 Facebook page. Deadline for submission of entries is on September 30, 2016.

  4. Looks like such a fun day. I'm not a big kiwi fan, so I wonder how I would have incorporated them into my recipe.
