Appledore's Christmas Cake-Off 2018

We would like to thank everyone who joined us. We raised £100 and donated it to Harbour in Bideford.

Whether you're a beginner, a casual baker or a real pro in the kitchen we'd love to welcome you to enter Appledore's FIRST EVER Christmas Cake-Off. The festive season is almost upon us so we'd like to start early and get to tasting some of the delights you will be cooking up for Christmas.

Entries can drop their creations off at Appledore Community Hall between 10:00 - 12:00, and the doors will be open to the public from 12:00 onward.

Judging will start at 13:00 - 14:00 followed by the awards ceremony at 14:30 (approx).
