Calling all amateur cake makers...!

Dust off your apron and dig out the spatula - and join the Community Forest Cake Off!

As part of our Forest Family Fun Day celebration at the Forest Centre on Saturday 3rd September we're inviting cake makers - young and old! - to put their baking skills to the test against other local people, and see if they've got what it takes to be crowned best bakes in the Forest!

This is a fun, community event open to enthusiastic amateur bakers only (to keep things fair!).

All cakes and bakes will be judged by a panel of Forest of Marston Vale team members and special guests, and marked out of a score of 30 points based on creativity and presentation, texture and taste. 

There will be a class for ages 16 and under, and over 16s. There are 4 categories to enter:

  • Decorated cupcakes (x6)
  • Biscuits/Cookies (x6)
  • Traybake
  • Victoria Sandwich cake

You can get creative with look, flavour combination or decoration - it's entirely up to you!

Each entry costs £1 per person per category entered - you can enter as may categories as you like within your age class! All money raised from the Community Forest Cake Off entries will be added to the fundraising total from the Forest Family Fun Day, and help support the work that we do planting trees and managing Community Woodlands and Millennium Country Park.

Winners in each category will have their bake featured on our website, receive a certificate of achievement and be crowned Community Forest Cake Off Champion!

Please note: this is not an admission ticket to the Forest Family Fun Day event. You must have a valid entrance ticket in order to be able to take part. Admission tickets can be booked online here.
