Together we'll create a 100 square metre fully-edible map of East Lincolnshire. The cake sculptures will be made from food grown and produced all over the region and will be placed to create a true visual feast.

We Need You!

Don't panic! We're not looking for perfectly scaled masterpieces, everyone is welcome to take part regardless of ability and we'll advise you throughout the challenge. We are looking for adventurous spirits, up-for-it attitudes and a passion for local landmarks and landscape but we're sure you've probably got that in abundance.

DO you want to get involved? Your first step is to pick a landmark to bake from the list above.

Get in touch to tell us your first and second choice of the landmarks listed. We will then confirm your selection and tell you what happens next.

If there's a building or place you love that isn't on our list, feel free to make a suggestion and we'll consider it. Taking part is rewarding, fun and free.

One more thing, in case you were wondering - yes, when the map has been completed and suitably admired by the crowds, we'll eat the lot.

SO Festival is bringing this project to you working with Head Baker, Simon Preston of Grace Food Innovation.

To get involved, contact Head Baker Simon at simon@cakefest.org.uk
