Eat Cake Week in support of Ty Gobaith features virtual bake-off competition

THE hunt is on for North Wales’s very own home star baker as Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospice launches its virtual Eat Cake Week.

Participants can enter Tŷ Gobaith’s very own bake-off competition, or host virtual coffee mornings and afternoon teas to keep in touch with friends, while also raising much needed funds for the charity.

Fundraiser Sarah Ritchie said: “Whether you bake or buy a cake, hold a virtual coffee morning or afternoon tea, every cake sold and every penny raised will help a local seriously ill child and their family get the care and support they desperately need.”

“We are also looking for cafes and bakeries who can join in the fun by fundraising for us, perhaps by choosing a special ‘Cake of the Week’ and donating a portion of their sales.”

The community bake off will see competitors have the opportunity to enter their home-made creation to be judged by a panel of cake connoisseurs and be judged this year’s Tŷ Gobaith star baker.

Bakers are challenged to produce a show stopping a rainbow sponge cake using the colours from the Hope House logo: blue, yellow, pink and green, with the team from Marmalade Kitchen, Rhos-on-Sea, recording a video tutorial.

Photos of masterpieces can be sent into Hope House and a donation is asked for in lieu of an entry fee.

The event is running until November 1.
