What is Caketober?


How does Caketober work?

Caketober is a month long celebration combining the perfect pairing of cakes and fancy dress. We are inviting companies, organizations and groups of friends to put on a bake sale and don their finest fancy dress day in their office, building or home.

Gather together your colleagues and friends and pick a day in October when you’d like to host your Caketober event. It just takes a couple of minutes to sign up and don’t forget to take a look at some of our recipes if you need a little inspiration…

Want to eat more good-cause cake?

A number of Manchester’s finest eateries will be joining the Caketober cause for 2016. Check back soon to find out which coffee shops and eateries across the city will be making a donation to Forever Manchester every time they sell one of their ‘Caketober’ cakes during October. Now there are even more ways you can eat your way to that feel-good factor!

What does Caketober raise money for?

Forever Manchester funds and supports thousands of community projects across Greater Manchester. Over the last 25 years Forever Manchester have delivered over £35million into local communities benefiting 1.1million people. You can help them reach this target by signing up today!
