Get another bite of Perth and Kinross as Cake Fest returns

Get another bite of Perth and Kinross as Cake Fest returns

After a deliciously spectacular inaugural event in 2017, Cake Fest Perth and Kinross is back for a second ‘slice of the action’ in 2018 as part of the annual Winter Festival celebrations.

Bakers of all abilities, from beginner to expert, are again being invited to take up their wooden spoons and contribute to this year’s event, by reproducing their favourite building or place in Perth and Kinross in cake form. Each sculpture will then be placed on an edible map of the area, created throughout the day by Cake Fest head baker Simon Preston.

The grand unveiling of Cake Fest 2018 will take place on Sunday 18 November 2018 as part of the Perthshire Feast event in Mill Street and Horsecross Plaza. Once complete, and after an opportunity for the public to view the eyecatching cake map, it will then be sliced up and shared with festivalgoers.

New for this year, Cake Fest will feature a redesigned, larger map and will celebrate a range of local events and anniversaries, such as the 150th anniversary of Perthshire Rugby Club. Looking back even further into local history, the Cake Fest map will also be
inspired by an ancient tradition which was banned in 1577, when Perth bakers last paraded to celebrate St. Obert, the patron saint of their trade.

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