As part of this year’s Winter Festival we are looking for bakers of all abilities from beginners to professionals to help create a giant edible map of Perth and Kinross.

Groups or individuals are being asked to pick their favourite building or place within Perth and Kinross and recreate it in cake form.  These will then feature on a giant edible map of the region which will be skillfully created by Cake Fest Head Baker Simon Preston. Baking teams will be guided by Simon every step of the way and there’s no charge to take part.

The grand unveiling of Cake Fest Perth and Kinross will take place on Sunday November 19 at Horsecross Plaza.  The fully edible landscape will be modelled under cover and bakers will arrive throughout the day to add their creation to the masterpiece.  Once the map has been completed, and people have had the chance to admire it, the cake buildings will be sliced up and shared with festival goers.

Bakers taking part can choose a landmark they love to be temporarily immortalised in cake or select from a list which includes:

McDairmid Park
Loch Leven Castle
