Budding bakers are being encouraged to rustle up home-made cakes as part of a baking competition in honour of Her Majesty’s forthcoming 90th birthday, taking place at the annual Michael Sobell Hospice (MSH) Vintage Affair event on Sunday 10th July, at the Michael Sobell Centre, Mount Vernon Hospital, Northwood, 10.00am-5.00pm.

 The culinary competition entitled ‘Cake fit for a Queen’ will be judged on the day by local chef Denise Phillips, with the winning cake going on sale to help raise funds for Michael Sobell Hospice, which needs over £1.6 million pounds of funding each year.

 Commenting on the cake-making competition, MSH PR & Marketing Manager, Sam Heggie said: “Dust off your rolling pins, get baking, and show off your inner Masterchef in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday, and in turn help raise vital funds for Michael Sobell Hospice. The competition is open to anyone who enjoys baking and wants to have a go. If you would like to put your cake creation forward, simply email our fundraising team for an entry form at”

 As well as the ‘Cake fit for a Queen’ competition, guests will be treated to a selection of classic cars on show,  live music, a variety of stalls selling vintage clothing, china,  jewellery, a raffle and tombola, plus afternoon tea will be served all day.

 “This event is not just for adults,” added Sam. “Jimmy Jam Tots Bear will also be making a special guest appearance for children on the day.”

 Entry for the event costs £2 for adults, children go FREE. Parking is available on site. All money raised goes towards the vital work of Michael Sobell Hospice in providing specialist palliative care to local patients facing life-limiting illness across Herts, Bucks and Middlesex.

 A special cake kindly donated by Wenzel’s bakery, went on display in the Charity’s Northwood shop last week in promotion of the competition and in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
