Bakers and Rand Show 2020 Take the Cake

From 8-13 April, Rand Show 2020 honours South Africa’s proud culinary tradition as it hosts the delectable SA Bakers’ Association Cake Competition and the JacarandaFM Clash of Kitchens at the new-look Rand Show 2020 Foodie Zone. The Foodie Zone will be home to a feast of flavour discoveries, from craft beer and gin to delicious farm-fresh fare at the Farmers’ Market.

The JacarandaFM Clash of Kitchens is a high-stakes reality cooking show that will see teams of two bring their fabulous foodie flair to life as they battle it out for their share of R150 000 in cash and prizes. To join the SA Chefs’ Association and compete for your chance to be recognised as South Africa’s next great culinary wizard, visit

Entries for the SA Bakers’ Association Cake Competition are open to people of all ages who are passionate about creating their own baked works of art and feel that they have what it takes to compete for their share of R18 000 in prize money.

If you think your baking talent is up to par and would like to enter, these are the rules:

  • The cake base must be no bigger than 600mm x 600mm
  • The height of the cake must not exceed 500mm

The master bakers from the SA Bakers’ Association will be on-hand to manage and judge the competition, and will also be hosting the Bakers’ Corner alongside Wooden Spoon from Willowton’s Group, featuring baking workshops for all ages to discover.
