The Bake District - celebrating our 70th birthday

Help support our anniversary year and see your creation featured in ParkLife magazine!

It's our 70th Anniversary in 2021, and nothing says Happy Birthday like cake...

Although we may not be able to get together right now for a slice and a brew, we know everyone has been busy in lockdown honing their baking skills.

That’s why we'd love to see your Peak District take on a bake! Tiers are optional...

The Mass Trespass cake!

Could you be our top birthday baker?

Between now and the end of February 2021, we'd like to see your culinary creations on our social media; whether it's a coffee and walnut Win Hill, a marzipan Mam Tor, or a tasty Tideswell well-dressing. Just tag us at #BakeDistrict70

From all of your wonderful bakes, we'll be choosing our favourite which we hope will be baked again on our official birthday of the 17th April as part of a live celebration online (Covid restrictions permitting).

We'll also be in touch to get your recipe, so it can be featured in our spring edition of ParkLife magazine.

Not on social media? You can email photos of your bakes to us at

Ready, Set, #BakeDistrict70 !

Millie the Sheep cake!
