SPECIFIED ON ENTRY FORMS AND COLLECTED BY 11.30AM SUNDAY 18TH MAY 2008. Always read
schedule carefully. Show cooking is a lot of fun, if you win a prize it is a bonus. If you don"t win a prize, study the
winning entries to see where you went wrong, also talk to the chief steward. Good Luck! Toffee - Should have clear
and be the colour of straw when set hard. Should crack when hit with the handle of a knife. Marshmallow - Should
break when twisted twice and be firm to the touch. French Jellies - Should be firm, with good colour. Try to put two
colours together as this is much more appealing. Chocolate Fudge - Do not overheat as it grains too much and
looses its bright colour. Russian Caramels - Depends on the judge - some like it like toffee, I like it grained like
fudge. Chocolates - Molded chocolates should have a good gloss. To achieve this, don"t overheat the chocolate
and handle very little. Coconut Ice - Another sweet you mustn"t overcook as it becomes hard to cut. Most
schedules say boiled, not made on copha. Also don"t colour pink too brightly. One drop of rose pink gives a good
colour. Make up sweets in a uniform size. In a collection always name all varieties. Make sweets approximately
3-4cm in size. Scones - Light and fine in texture. This comes about by kneading well. Size should be about 5cm.
For show work scones should never touch while cooking. For pumpkin scones always strain the pumpkin so no
pieces of pumpkin show in scones when opened. Before bringing scones to a show rub off any visible flour with a
soft cloth. Scones should be evenly cooked and nicely browned top and bottom. Scones should be broken in half,
not cut. Texture - Scones should flake when thumb is rolled across lightly. Butter Cakes - Neat appearance, firm
icing. For shows, ice on top only unless otherwise stated. Good texture and flavour, light to touch. Without air
bubbles, cooked evenly, nicely browned top and bottom. Mixture should be moist and should rise evenly without
cracks. Cocoa must be well mixed through mixture, no lumps of cocoa showing. Never put a skewer into show

cooking as it will leave a mark in centre of cake when cut. If unsure if cake is cooked, lift from oven and put to ear.
If it is still making a crackling noise, return to oven for a little longer. Another good guide as to when cake is ready is
when it has left sides of tin. Let cakes rest for a while when taken from oven, as it will avoid sticking and come out
a lot easier. Slice - Should be cut into 5cm squares. Six pieces to a tray unless otherwise stated. Base firm cooked
according o recipe, nice even colour. Firm icing, not too wet, no drips over edges. For show work, trim edges to get
a nice straight edge before cutting into 5cm squares. Sponges - A good sponge is light and moist, but not soggy.
Delicately and evenly browned, with no overhanging or sugar spots. With a sponge roll, don"t overcook as they will
crack when rolled. Always use warm jam in a Sandwich sponge or roll. Carrot Cakes - Ice with butter icing for show
work as filly cheese is too messy to handle, also will go moldy after a couple of days in the heat. Also neaten
around edge of icing. * When cooking for shows forget you own a cake cooler, turn out on a tea towel, turning often
as cooler marks loose points. * Always use good quality ingredients at room temperature. * When icing cakes for
show work, join sandwiches with a fine line of icing, always have only a thin layer on top, using very little butter, add
a little glycerin to keep icing soft. * One tablespoon of hot water added while creaming butter and sugar helps
remove sugar spots. * Use Fielders corn flour for cakes and White Wings for thickening. When adding flour, don"t
add all at once as some flour is drier and you may not need it all. Only add until a good consistency. * A good size
for pikelets is one tablespoon. Always pour mixture from point of spoon to get a good shape. * Don"t put dates or
prunes in rich fruit cake for show work. * When icing cakes or patty cakes use few decorations and keep away from
where judge cuts through centre or cake. All entries are cut in half for judging and tasting unless specified. Biscuits
- Bake in a low sided tray. High sided trays block out heat, causing the bottom of the biscuits to brown before the
top. If mixture is too soft refrigerate rather then adding flour, which can spoil the mixtures texture. Biscuits - When
schedule states "plate biscuits", they should be rolled or put through a pusher. Biscuits dropped and pressed with a
form are classed as cookies. Texture of a biscuit should be fine and crisp. Flavour plays a big part in judging. The
flavour should denote what type of biscuit it is. In a collection, name each variety and ensure uniformity. Fruit Cake
- Flavour should be very pleasing, with fruit distributed evenly. When cut, fruit should have a glossy look. If
overcooked, fruit will start to burst. The top should be nice and smooth. This can be achieved by wetting our hand
and patting the top of the cake before cooking. Sultana Cake - Beat well to avoid sugar spots, but don"t over beat.
For Show work, only use 360gm sultanas to a 250gm mixture (check schedule). The cake should be light brown
when taken out of the oven. Boiled Fruit - As this is called a "poor mans cake" it should have only 375gm packet of
mixed Cake - fruit and nice glossy top. A lot of competitor"s loose points for cleaning out the bowl too much, this
part of the mixture has less fruit and this will show, spoiling the appearance of the cake. Shortbread - To be a
delicate straw colour. When tasted, should leave a rich buttery taste in your mouth. Kisses - Characteristics are
shortness and fine texture due to the presence of corn flour. Kisses are mostly joined with jam and dusted with
icing sugar, or as schedule. Jams - Good colour and flavour, thick enough that when dropped from spoon will stay
as dropped. Should have nice pearly shine. Skin and fruit cut together. Jellies - Good colour when held up to light,
free of any clouding. Best way to prevent this is to hang bag of fruit overnight, do not squeeze bag. Make sure
bottle is full enough as when lid is placed on bottle there is no gap between jelly and lid. Also only stir jelly till sugar
dissolves. Marmalade - Always cut skins finely (without fruit), don"t put through a blender. Some recipes give this
method, but still not accepted for show work as it gives the jam a cloudy look. If jam is too hot when bottled, fruit will
rise from bottom losing points. When putting a collection of jams in show, unless schedule states "Jams and
Marmalades", never use a citrus fruit as they are classed as marmalade. Bottles should be uniform size, approx
450g. Use bottles with straight sides, neatly labeled and polished free of drips and finger marks, always pack
bottles of jelly, or any bottle work, so not to lean sideways during transport. Always line insides of lids with white
cardboard or heavy paper. Most judges prefer no hats. * Cook rind till tender before adding sugar. * Jams lose
colour with age. * Bottling jams is the same as for jellies. Relish - Should just be boiled to thicken, corn flour or plain
flour should not be required. Good colour. Chutney - Good Colour, fruity flavour, mellow taste. Freezing Points All
cakes are suitable for freezing. Make sure the cake has cooled thoroughly before freezing. Wrap tightly with cling
wrap, so there is no air between the cake and the wrapping. You can either put the cake in a container or just wrap

in paper and freeze. Simply ensure nothing heavy is placed on top of cake until frozen. Chocolate icing goes a little
streaky after freezing. For show work, ice after thawing. Thaw the day before the show wrapped in a towel to
absorb any moisture. Biscuits freeze well. Wrap biscuits in cello-paper. Put each pack into a plastic dish and
freeze. To thaw, take dish out of freezer but lave in an airtight container until ready for use. Scones can be frozen
but must be taken out on the morning of the show and wrapped in a tea towel. For show work, never freeze sponge
cakes, fruit cakes or shortbread. Fruit cakes and shortbread improve in flavour by keeping them out of the freezer.
Sponge cakes should be made on the day before the show. Tin Sizes Bar Tin: 21 cm x 11 cm Fruit Cakes 250g

NOT LEAVE THREADS HANGING. TIE THEM OFF AND SNIP OFF EXCESS. 2. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE NOT
LEFT ANY SECTIONS OF THE SEAMS WITH RAW EDGES VISIBLE 3. JUDGES USUALLY TURN THE ITEM
INSIDE OUT TO SEE IF THE INSIDE IS AS NEAT AS THE OUTSIDE. 4. IF YOU ARE DOING EMBROIDERY DO
NOT START WITH A KNOT. LEAVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF THREAD AT BACK (WRONG SIDE) OF WORK
AND WORK THE FIRST FEW STITCHES YOU DO OVER THIS THREAD. 5. IF YOU EMBROIDER A PATTERN
ON THE ITEM, THE JUDGE WILL LOOK AT THE BACK AND IF THEY CANNOT TELL WHAT THE PATTERN IS,
POINTS WILL BE LOST. 6. WHEN YOU HAVE USED ALL YOUR THREAD IN THE NEEDLE, OR HAVE
FINISHED ALTOGETHER, YOUR THREAD SHOULD BE ON THE BACK OF YOUR WORK. THREAD THE
NEEDLE UNDER THE LAST 4 OR 5 STITCHES AND GENTLY PULL THE THREAD THROUGH. SNIP OFF THE
THREAD AS THIS LOOKS NEATER THAN TRYING TO TIE A KNOT. 7. KEEP WORK AS CLEAN AS POSSIBLE
WHILE WORKING ON ARTICLE. 8. DO NOT WASH ARTICLE BEFORE ENTERING IT IN A COMPETITION. 9.
JUDGES WILL PUT ASIDE WORK THAT IS NOT FINISHED OFF NEATLY ON THE WRONG SIDE, EVEN IF

THREADS TO PREVENT KNOTTING, STRETCHING AND FRAYING. 11. REMEMBERING THESE SIMPLE
HINTS WILL ALLOW YOUR WORK TO BE PRESENTED TO THE JUDGE IN THE BEST POSSIBLE MANNER.
