The Cake Café have teamed up with RTÉ Food to offer one lucky reader a baking masterclass for two...

The Cake Café is an unassuming South side bakery and café; a snug setting with a sweet centre that specialises in comforting, top quality home baking with a contemporary twist.

Having graduated from art college and trevelled the world, Michelle Darmody returned to Ireland and opened The Cake Café in Dublin in 2006. From the very start, it has gone from strength to strength, championing Irish food, and Dublin's beautiful city itself.

Located on Pleasant's Place, Dublin 8, the Café’s leafy courtyard is an oasis in the city centre where people enjoy sugar-dusted sponges, lemon slices and the most excellent coffee, as well as sip glasses of processco or tuck in to classic baked egg and soldiers or their now-famous beans on toast.

The Cake Café has become a neighborhood staple with an international reputation, a place that is embedded in the conscience of the customers.

Not only does the café offer sweet treats and home cooking, they also provide baking masterclasses to pass on their culinary know-how. To top it all off, MIchelle has just released the Café's cook book with some of their most sought-after recipes.

The book is described as 'Vibrantly designed, produced and illustrated, this collectable book expresses all the character, wit and unique voice of the Café in something more akin to discovering an exciting new art movement in your own kitchen, than yet another worthy lifestyle cookery book on the shelf'.

For more information about the café, their cookbook or their classes, log on to their website, or connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

The lucky winner of the competition will get the chance to attend a baking masterclass, with a baking partner of their choice, with Michelle and her team, and both will also receive a copy of The Cake Café's debut, best-selling cookbook.
