Blokes having a crack at the cakes at Bangalow Show
BANGALOW Show seems a little quirkier than your average country show.
There is everything from a bee-hive hairdo and 'beeard' competition to a mower race.
Of course there are also more traditional events like horse jumping, trotting and a rodeo.
But for the first time this year there will be a 'man cake challenge'.
Cakes must be entered by 9.30 am.
Liz Harfull, author of the book, The Australian Blue Ribbon cookbook, said there were more men entering cakes and other related cooking competitions at country shows around Australia.
Her book is a collection of recipes celebrating Australian Country shows, bringing together stories and images of shows all over Australia.
"I love the way local produce is being used in the recipes, like nectarines and macadamias," she said.
Bangalow resident Bruce McDonough is featured in the book with his nectarine and macadamia frangipane tart.
"I thought this was a lovely example of what I wanted to include in the book," Ms Harfull said.
