Budding bakers wanted for charity cake competition

Amateur cooks are invited to submit their culinary creations to a Cake Baking Competition being held in Sutton Park on Saturday 28th April.


With the popularity of baking on the rise, this fundraising event offers the perfect opportunity to display traditional and new creative skills while raising funds for children with additional needs.

The event is being organised by The Donkey Sanctuary who provide riding therapy with donkeys to around 180 children from across Birmingham each week.

The Cake Baking Competition has five categories:

  • Cupcakes and muffins
  • Sponge Cake
  • Fruit Cake
  • Junior Baker (Under 12s)
  • Best Decorated

There is an entry fee of £1 per category and entrants should bring their cakes to the centre before 1pm on Saturday 28th April. After the judging is completed the cakes will be sold to raise funds for The Donkey Sanctuary’s riding sessions in Sutton Park.

The Cake Baking Competition will be followed by an Afternoon Tea from 2pm until 4pm where visitors are welcome to enjoy delicious cakes and also meet the centre’s 21 gorgeous therapy donkeys.

EST provides donkey therapy services free of charge and is entirely dependent on fundraising and donations to continue its work.
