So that’s it…we’re out of our cakey food comas, we’ve put down our rolling pin and our pinnies and Caketober has come to an end once again.

2015’s Caketober was the biggest yet, with nearly 70 businesses taking part and raising over £8,000 with more to come…

A huge thank you once again to theEword for their continued support with Caketober.

Every year Caketober is getting bigger and better, with 2015’s instalment seeing the number of companies and groups taking part more than doubling. Not only that but this is the first year where local coffee shops, restaurants and hotels have donated something from every Caketober item sold during October.


Cake is a great way to get involved and help raise money. This month continues to show how something as simple baking and selling cakes can make a massive difference for local communities of Greater Manchester.

We will also be announcing the winners for the Caketober competitions including best looking cake, best fancy dress and the coveted business award at First Friday on Friday 6th November, 4pm – 6pm. It’s free to attend and you can SIGN UP HERE.
