The Challenge

Appreciating the beauty of the handmade, the delicious, and of course, The Great British Bake Off, SAM is inviting local bakers to create signature desserts inspired by artworks in the exhibition Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts & Crafts Movement.

View the desserts and see who walks away as a prized baker after our judges make their picks based on the principles of the Pre-Raphaelites and overall deliciousness. Vote for your favorite design (appearance only) for the People's Choice award. Enjoy a bar and dessert options provided by TASTE. A limited number of free community passes will be made available for visitors to view the exhibition which is open until 9 pm.

6–7 pm Signature desserts on view.
7 pm Judges announce awards
