What is Caketober?

A CELEBRATION OF CAKES AND FANCY DRESS ALL IN AID OF CHARITY!

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!

I am a coffee shop / restaurant / bar / eaterie / cake purveyor and I want to help!

That’s great…find out more about how you can get involved here.

What does Caketober raise money for?

Forever Manchester is a charity that raises money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester. They help local people do extraordinary things together. They fund and support a huge range of activities that help young people, older people and disabled people, as well as homelessness, sports, environmental, education, and cancer support projects, plus everything in between. Forever Manchester works with our local communities to inspire and encourage projects that they want to see, to make their neighbourhoods happier, healthier and safer places to be. This is charity… The Mancunian Way.
