Bakers of all ages will be hoping to avoid soggy bottoms when they create cake and biscuit tributes to Herne Bay’s newly restored clock tower. The Great Clock Tower Cake and Biscuit Bake Off is being organised by the Friends of Herne Bay Clock Tower and takes place on Saturday, May 2.
It has been partly inspired by the five-feet tall gingerbread clock tower created by supporter Margita Dubricka which is on display at the Friends information shop.
Everyone is invited to take part. There are three categories of entry:
- Age 10 and under (home-made cake or biscuit or decorated pre-made cake or biscuit)
- Age 11 to 17 (must be home-made)
- Over 18 (must be home-made)
Entries will be accepted up until Friday, May 1. They will be judged on the Saturday morning at the United church hall.
From 3pm at the Clock Tower Plaza, Central Parade, the winning entries will be on display and the remaining entries will be cut up and given away with free tea. There will also be music and dancing at the plaza.
Colleen Ashwin-Kean, from the Friends, said:
“We are hoping for a lot of entries, but even if people’s aren’t able to enter there will still be a lovely event taking place from 3pm and we hope everyone will come down to enjoy it.”
