Callington Town Forum is looking for a professional baker to create special cakes to commemorate the upcoming Platinum Jubilee.

As part of the four day celebrations currently being organised for Callington, the town forum will be commissioning five large cakes to be made.  One of the cakes will be cut by portreeve councillor Mike Tagg and his wife on Sunday, June 5 at lunchtime in the marquee located in Saltash Road recreational grounds which will be shared out to those present at that time.

The remaining four cakes will then be taken to four local care homes by the portreeve and his wife, town crier councillor Tony Stentiford and members of the Poppy Volunteer Group who will bring along the first of their hand made panels (on the theme of Callington during Covid). A toast to the Queen will be made at each care home.

The town forum ask that all ingredients be listed with each cake to enable compliance with food regulations and to allow the care home staff to ensure that no one with food allergies or intolerances are at risk.

Their specific requirements are that each cake must be a sponge with a filling and butter cream decoration and must be big enough to give a minimum of 30 servings.

Local bakers with appropriate food handing and hygiene certification that this challenge appeals to are encouraged to email [email protected] to discuss further details.
