THE search is on for Boro’s best bakers to create cake sculptures of the town’s landmarks.
The best designs will be placed on a giant edible map as part of the town’s first ever Cake Fest.
The baking extravaganza is the latest event celebrating the re-opening of Middlesbrough Town Hall after its £7.7 million Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery Fund-supported makeover.
Cake Fest is just that – a festival of cake which will bring up to 100 cake-based landmarks from around the region to Centre Square, on Sunday, July 1
But the ravenous get to admire and then devour a Newport Bridge sponge cake, a mima madeira or a Riverside Stadium roulade, someone has to bake the cakes.
Would-be bakers are asked to visit www.cakefestmiddlesbrough.co.uk and reserve a landmark.
