Claire will be joined by three others, Karrin Simpson, Milton Keynes cake artist, Andrea Ruff who is the head chef at MK College to judge the Cake Off that will see one person make the official cake for Milton Keynes’ 50th birthday next year.

More than 20 local cake artists have submitted their entry forms so far and the deadline for final applications is Monday 31 October.

Karrin Simpson, who is project managing the event said: “I’ve been overwhelmed by the number of applications, the standard is extremely high, which will make the final judging very hard.”

To enquire about taking part in The Great MK Cake Off, send your design and contact details in an email to karrin.simpson@gmail.com and head it ‘MK50 Bake Off’ in the subject box.

Ten entries will be invited to take part in a ‘Bake Off’ style event at Milton Keynes College on November 12th where you will make and bake your design from scratch and the panel judges will select their winner.

The overall winner will receive the honour of making the MK50th cake.
