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?

We’re delighted to say that this year, some of Manchester’s finest eateries are joining the Caketober cause. You’ll find a number of coffee shops across the city who will be making a donation to Forever Manchester every time they sell one of their Caketober cakes throughout the whole month of 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!
