Top tips Cake Fest Edinburgh, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

SO Festival is excited to present CAKE FEST on Sunday 2 July. A giant edible map of East Lindsey will be on display at Compass Gardens from 2pm - all made out of cake!

Skegness, 2 July, 2pm, Compass Gardens

The CAKE FEST project is searching the region to recruit community groups and/ or individuals of budding bakers to claim and recreate their favourite landmark, building or place out of cake. The cake sculptures will be produced all over the region and on 2 July will be placed together to create a true visual feast. 

The aim is simple; to create a 100 square metre fully-edible map of East Lindsey.

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.

DO you want to get involved? Your first step is to pick a landmark to bake.  A full list of chosen landmarks by County Care will be available on  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.
