    About The Buderim Ginger Dark Rich Fruit Cake Competition

    2020 Buderim Ginger Dark Rich Fruit Cake State Final Competition Cancelled

    The Queensland Ag Shows Board, by Rotary Resolution, has also decided to cancel ALL Queensland Ag Shows State Competition Finals for 2020. Any decision on 2021 eligibility will be determined at a later date. The decision to cancel the 2020 finals was to give some clarity to the position. Shows and Sub-Chambers will now have to determine how this decision applies to their circumstances bearing in mind that there will be no progression to any Queensland State Finals in 2020.

    Further information about any 2021 competitions will be provided once the future direction is able to be determined when the full impact of the current situation is known.

    This competition is a test of skills in the fine art of baking a Dark Rich Fruit Cake for those who wish to maintain a heritage culture which has been renowned for generations.
    A set recipe is not provided – exhibitors are permitted to use their own tried and proven recipe in accordance with the Queensland Ag Show rules.

    The competition begins at the local show. Winners of the Dark Rich Fruit Cake local show competition are eligible to enter the Sub Chamber competition. The winner of each Sub Chamber is then eligible to be judged at the State Finals. Only one entry from each Sub-Chamber is permitted and no cut cake will be accepted in any competition. For more information about local shows, please visit the Contact Shows page.

    All exhibits for the State final must be a 500g mixture, made with approximately 2.25kg of fruit, and will be displayed at the State Finals hosting show. 

    Thank you to our sponsor: Buderim Ginger – “The Worlds Finest Ginger”

    Queensland Ag Shows are proud to announce Buderim Ginger as the Dark Rich Fruit Cake Competition Sponsor.

    From a small farming community in the pre World War 1 days, to one of the world’s finest ginger producers, food processors and tourist destinations, Buderim Ginger is a long-standing and proudly successful Australian business.

    It all started with some raw ginger pieces that found their way to Buderim, Australia many, many years ago. They thrived in the rich volcanic soil, the high rainfall and humidity. When the Second World War cut ginger supply from China, sales of the Buderim produced crop soared. As a result of this, five Buderim farmers met together in an old blacksmith’s shop and formed The Buderim Ginger Grower’s Co-operative Association Limited. Between them they had capital of 25 pounds, two wooden vats, 14 tons of green ginger and plenty of Australian spirit.

    Do yourself a favour and pop over to the Buderim Ginger website for more information on their delicious Australian Ginger www.buderimginger.com.
