Great Brixton Bake Off, Lemon Drizzle Cake, 2012

It is hard to believe that The Great British Bake Off only started in 2010; it feels like it has been around forever, and the massive cult following reflects that. The Britishness of the show feeds our patriotism, and the baking feeds our love of cake. When each series ends, I enter a state of withdrawal, and so do many others. What are we going to do without our beloved baking competition?

The answer is quite simple. We'll start our own. For the second year running, Brixton Market is holding The Great Brixton Bake Off. Showcasing the area's best bakers, the event will be held on Brixton Station Road between 10am-5pm. If you want to enter, it costs 35 to set up a stall, and you'll need a Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate, but most of us will just be there for the sampling.

There will be thirty bakers, all with delicious bites to try, and although Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry won't be present, you'll notice some familiar faces in the judges' seats, including the saucy entrepreneur Levi Roots, and Brixton's vegan bakery owner, Ms Cupcake .

Come and enjoy live folk music, great food, and a good old fashioned tea dance.
