Event Details

Join our fundraising bake off and enjoy some festive fun!


The Age UK Leeds, Clandestine Cake Club festive bake off is here to launch your Christmas celebrations!  Massage your marzipan, practice your panattone, and raise some dough for older people in Leeds.

Our previous bake off, admiring the cakes 


To help launch the Christmas season, we’re looking for bakers to take part in our Great Leeds festive Bake Off. And lots of people to help us eat the cakes! Cakes will be judged by: Clandestine Cake Club founder, and cake recipe book author, Lynn Hill. And Jo from one of Leeds’ favourite cafes, the Greedy Pig.

We would like you to join us for our festive fundraising bake off. We are looking to celebrate all that sparkles about Christmas. We have 3 categories for your Christmas inspiration:

  • Festive Cakes – Minimum size: 8″ round /square or 1lb Loaf cakes
  • Festive Bakes-Pastry, Biscuits, Sweet Yeast Bakes - All buns/Biscuits must be 12 identical.
  • Festive Junior – Age up to 16. Festive Cakes and Festive Bakes, same rules apply.

( Bakers can bring along 2 free guests!  Remember, you can enter more than one category but only need to buy one baking ticket! Cakes need to be left with us 9-4 Friday or 9-2 on Saturday in time for judging. )

There will 2 winners per category, with fantastic prizes donated by Hobbycraft, Renshaw's Baking and Yourkshire Tea. There will also be a star baker, who wins the fabulous prize of a Kenwood Classic Chef in blue!!

Be inspired by the season’s festive sparkle, or those Nordic nibbles. Suprise us with stollen, wow with Yuletide log, or create a glorious gingerbread house. If you believe the spirit of Christmas baking can only be embraced by a moist mince pie, then just remember we need 12 to share.

Doors open to ticket holders at 3:30pm. Join us at The Arch Café for an afternoon of cake delights, to enjoy eating competition cakes and drinking lots of Yorkshire Tea. 2 slices or 7 slices, eat as much as you like! There is chance to win a wonderful Kenwoods Chefette in the raffle.

Admission costs £5.  All money raised will support Age UK to help older people across Leeds this winter. Cakes can be delivered to Age UK Leeds 9am-4pm on Friday 29th and 9am-2pm on Saturday 30th.

Cold winter nights, log fires, wooly jumpers and delicious cake. Make Advent full of sparkle.
