FRIENDS OF SEATON PARK

CAKEFEST6 – Instructions for Bakers

16th March, 2019, 10–12 noon

Dunbar Street Hall, Old Aberdeen 

Thank you for requesting more information about the 2019 Friends of Seaton Park CakeFest.  More questions? Please contact seatonpark@oldaberdeen.org.uk or send us a message on Facebook.

What is it?

The CakeFest concept is a coffee morning with a difference — think British Bake-Off meets Beer Festival!  On entering the hall you will be overwhelmed by the selection of delicious, mouth-watering, homemade cakes on offer for you to eat and judge!  £3 will buy you a cup of tea/coffee (juice for kids also available) and three pieces of cake.  Vote for your favourite by putting your token in the cup next to it.  Want more cake?  Then you can buy more.

So You Want to Enter a Cake? 

Cakes must be homemade.  There are no categories — cakes, traybakes, fruit loaves, tarts, meringues, are all suitable — just make your best bake(s) and bring it (or them) along by 9:15 a.m. on the day.  We’ll ask you to fill in a registration form with the name of the cake, any dietary information you can include, e.g. gluten-free, vegan, contains nuts, dairy-free, etc and your details.

Please note that, although we do not want to discourage you from spending hours decorating your entries, cakes will be cut prior to public judging and therefore any decorations may be damaged (we’ll do our best not to though!)

Presentations for the winners will take place at approximately 11:30 a.m. The first prize will be the coveted CakeFest apron.

Children can enter too

Cupcake decorating competition for 2 – 12 year olds.  Cupcakes and decorating materials supplied.

After CakeFest is over, please remember to collect the container you brought your cake(s) in and/or the plate(s) used to display.

Parking and Transport 

Dunbar St. Hall is located on the right-hand side (from St Machar Drive direction), about 50m. from the road junction.

Limited parking is available free of charge on Dunbar Street.  Dunbar Street is a narrow residential street, so please park courteously.  There is also parking on The Chanonry, a short walk away.

The Number 20 bus stops on St. Machar Drive, just 50m. from the Dunbar St. Hall.  There are also many buses which stop at the St. Machar roundabout on King Street, next to the Spar, a 5 minute walk from the hall.
