Caketober – Get Baking For Manchester

Dress up and host a bake sale at work for Forever Manchester

Published on October 16th 2013.

Caketober – Get Baking For Manchester

CAKETOBER is here! It's a month-long celebration of cakes and fancy dress where companies, organisations and groups of friends put on a bake sale to raise money for charity Forever Manchester – and this year, there’s a sparkling fundraising evening at Grill on New York Street, which is set to make it the best Caketober yet!

Use Caketober’s delicious recipes or get colleagues to cook up some family favourites

On 23 October, a host of famous Manchester faces – including Captain Manchester – will descend on Grill on New York Street for a charity bake off, with all proceeds going to Forever Manchester.

There will even be a Caketober cocktail on sale – so make sure you don’t miss out. Tickets are limited, so get yours today by contacting Lucy Barber on 0161 848 4300 or lucy.barber@theeword.co.uk.

But that’s not all. There's still time to plan your own Caketober Day; just gather together your colleagues or friends and pick a day in October when you’d like to host your Caketober event.

You can sign up at www.caketober.com and take a look at the recipes for inspiration, many of which are Manchester-inspired (such as the lovely-looking chocolate Vimto cake).

You can use Caketober’s delicious recipes, available on the website, or get colleagues to cook up some family favourites.

In return for your efforts, companies will be listed on the Caketober website and will receive a motivational tweet a day to get you geared up for the event.

Anyone who takes part can tweet their favourite moments from the month using the #Caketober hashtag, and all tweets will also appear on the official site.

Once everyone’s had their fill of scrummy cakes and goodies, companies can donate the money they've raised to Forever Manchester, a charity for those with a passion for the Greater Manchester area and its people. For tickets, contact Lucy Barber on 0161 848 4300 or lucy.barber@theeword.co.uk.

Interested? Signing up is easy, and if you include a logo during the sign-up process it will be added to the site.
