The Cork Baking and Chocolate Weekend gets underway today.

The three-day event returns to the Cork International Hotel this weekend, kicking off with the annual cocoa-themed dinner on Friday evening.

There will be a whole host of activities and demonstrations throughout the weekend, including the second Great Cork Bake Off.

The Great Cork Bake Off will see 15 carefully-selected finalists bake a 'Showstopper' cake and be judged by renowned chef, Paul Kelly, Executive Pastry Chef of the Merrion Hotel and Judge of the Great Irish Bake Off.

Other weekend highlights include a question and answer session with one of the world's most respected chocolatiers, William Curley, who will offer tips and tricks for baking and decorating cakes.

And with Christmas just around the corner now, there will also be a talk on how to make the perfect Christmas cake.

General manager of the Cork International Hotel, Carmel Lonergan, said: "This is one of the major highlights for us here in the hotel. It is a huge event for Cork as some of the biggest names in chocolate and baking are participating in the proceedings.

"This year admission to the event is just €5 for adults, which children free. We are so excited to transform the hotel in a Chocolate Wonderland this weekend."
