The Bake Off Pop-Up Not To Be Missed

Favourites 6

Calling all baking aficionados, the first ever Bake Off pop-up has arrived in London. The Big London Bake has set up shop (and marquee) in Tooting to give all those who fancy themselves star baker the chance to put their skills to the test – and you even get to skip on the washing up…

Tell us more…

Located in the pub gardens of Tooting’s much-loved The Castle, the pop-up is complete with shiny bake stations, pastel coloured mixers and obligatory bunting, ready for teams or solo bakers to work their magic against the clock, in true Bake Off style. And there are even professionals on hand to provide you with expert tips and tricks to ensure you don’t end up with a soggy bottom.

So, how does it work?

Once the aprons are on and the clock has started, ten teams of two (or you can go it alone if you’re feeling confident) are tasked with the challenge of whipping up their very own technical/showstopper hybrid bake, to be completed in under ninety minutes. That means minimal instructions are provided and full customisation is encouraged in order to bag that winning title. Once the timer is up – and trust us, it will feel a lot shorter than an hour and a half – finished creations will be tasted, judged and the winning team crowned.

Who goes?

Whilst you could go with co-workers, for a birthday or even take a date, we’d recommend doing it with the girls. And you needn’t be a pro, no matter your ability you’ll have plenty to get on with – after all, sunken cakes, decorating mishaps and mistaking salt for sugar is what the Bake Off is all about.

We’ll be going back for…

Next month’s bake! Every month sees a new theme enter the tent (July is choux pastry month) so if you don’t place as well as you want first time round, or simply want to try your hand at mastering another treat, there’s always a chance to wow the judges again.

Anything else?

It’s less than a minute from Tooting Broadway tube and is running until the end of September – book now to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Tickets are priced at £36.50 each and must be booked in advance. The entire marquee can also be booked out for special events and large groups.
