Prepare to be totally underwhelmed as the general public go head-to-head to be crowned champion. Join in the baking or the ridiculous judging over this three-day event.
Hunt & Darton as your hosts and adjudicators, have created a ridiculous set of rules and criteria to judge the cake creations. Is your cake tropical or absurd enough, how is it’s movement literacy? What is the concept behind your cream topping? The prize, a trip to Camber Sands Holiday Park – Pontins, of course!

PREVIOUS TOUR LOCATIONS
March 2014 – saw the tour kick off in style with our pop-up in Brighton as part of this year’s hub for SICK! Festival and supported by The Basement. Guest waiters, theme days and hosted talks approached the core themes of the festival (Death, Mental illness, Aging and Adolescence) collaborating with medical practitioners, academics, artists and local groups. Guest waiters included artists: Brian Lobel, Figs in Wigs, Odd Comic and Scottee.
May 2014 – we opened the second of our pop-up cafe’s in Cambridge to overwhelming press and local support! Our partners on this leg of the tour were the lovely Eat Cambridge and Cambridge Junction. We spent all four weeks of the pop-up being inundated with customers.
As part of our tour, we have developed our own special loyalty scheme with the help of LOW PROFILE
