This October you’re invited to get together with friends, family, colleagues to help

bake the world a better place.

Big Cake Bake is all about doing something kind, generous and delicious while helping others.

This year, we’re celebrating the power of connection. It’s an opportunity to get together, connect with each other (in-person or virtually!), celebrate community resilience and spirit, and raise money for a good cause.

No matter how big or small your morning tea, cake stall, or workplace bake off, you’ll be raising vital funds that make a difference to the lives of thousands of people.

This year you can also host a virtual event – try a Zoom cake decorating competition and get people to donate online. Check out our virtual event resources and ideas for inspiration.

For information on keeping your event COVID-19 safe, please check out our FAQs.

Thank you and happy baking!
