Are your cakes good enough to get the nod of approval from Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood?

Huddersfield’s very own version of the baking duo – Stephen and Tracy Jackson of the T & Cake cafe in Almondbury will decide who is the town’s star baker.

On Saturday, 8 April, Stephen and Tracy will judge the entries in Tolson Museum’s very own ‘Great Bake-Off’.

What do I need to bake?

The competition takes its theme from the museum’s transport gallery with its cars, tractors, coaches and bicycles. Entrants have to create a cake celebrating some form of transport.There are three classes:

  • adults – a cake for a special occasion
  • under 12s – any shaped cake
  • under 8s – a round cake or cakes

How to enter

There is a charge of £3 per entry.

Cakes can be brought to the museum in Ravensknowle Park, Wakefield Road, Huddersfield, from 2pm on Saturday 8 April 2017. All entries must be in place by 3.30pm for judging at 4pm.
