CakeFest 2017 

A wonderful time was had by all at Dunbar Street Hall today. £3 for 3 fine slices baked by The Friends of Seaton Park community’s fair hands. We’ll let these photographs speak for themselves. Mouth watering!

Fruit Trees

As part of our effort to mark the park’s 70th anniversary we are planting 20 fruit trees (apples, cherries, plums, and pears, including some unusual heritage varieties) from 8:45am to approx.10:30am on Tuesday, 21 February, close to Mr Therm and the children’s playground. They will, we hope, produce masses of blossom for insects, and, in the fullness of time, fruit. Please come along if you would like to be involved. Bring a spade if you have one.

18th March, 2017, 10–12 noon

Dunbar St. Hall, Old Aberdeen 

Thank you for requesting more information about the 2017 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 buy more.

So You Want to Enter a Cake? 

Cakes must be homemade. There are no categories—cakes, traybakes, fruit loaves are all suitable—just make your best bake(s) and bring it (or them) along by 9:30 a.m. on the day. We’ll ask you to fill in a quick card with the name of the cake, any dietary information you can include, e.g. gluten, vegan, contains nuts, dairy free, 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!
