Bake BAKO a Birthday Cake

2 June, 2014

It’s hard to believe, but 2014 marks BAKO North Western’s 50th Birthday; fifty years of providing the region’s local bakers with all their essential ingredients to whip up baking masterpieces.

To mark the event, BAKO want you to bake our Birthday cake! Our family tree has grown over the past 50 years, and we’ve added everyone from cafes to colleges to our client list, but we still love hearing from all the small independent bakers that started us off on our journey. That’s why we want you to play a big part in our celebrations by creating us the perfect 50th Birthday cake, to be in with a chance to win some fantastic prizes!

We want you to dazzle us with your cake decoration skills, so be as creative as possible and let your imagination run wild! You can find out more information and register online by clicking here, but you’ll need to hurry because registration closes on Wednesday 4th June.

If you’re looking for inspiration, here are some Birthday cakes that we spotted on Twitter that we think have that wow factor!


Cakes by Vanilla

We really admire this decadent chocolate ruffle cake by Cakes by Vanilla; simple yet sophisticated, it would impress at any occasion.


Fiona Cairns

Fiona Cairns has gone all out with this Alice and Wonderland themed Birthday cake and treats. BAKO love the idea of creating themed bakes, as you can be as extravagant as you like, playing with colour, taste, fillings and size.


The Cakebank

It’s not just wedding cakes that have multiple tiers, Birthday cakes can too, like this three tier present cake from Denise Banks. We particularly like the intricate work with sugarpaste, creating the bow that tops this cake.


Gingerbread Lane

Gingerbread Lane demonstrate how easy it can be to create an eye-catching design using simple piping in contrasting colours.


We look forward to seeing your entries on the 11th June! Keep an eye out on Twitter and our blog for the latest news on the contest.
