The Feathers Hotel launches competition for budding bakers!

The Feathers Hotel in Ludlow has the perfect competition for all budding bakers to do during the school holidays with the launch of its ‘Create a Cake’ competition.

Calling all Mary Berry wannabe’s, this competition is open to all children between 7 and 12 years old across xxxx to celebrate the opening of the brand new tea room at the Feathers Hotel.

Group Executive Chef, Wayne Nell said: “We know people are often stuck for ideas for fun things to do with the children in school holidays so what better way than to spend time with your children or grandchildren than by baking!  We are simply asking each child to channel their inner baker and invent a cake recipe that they would like to see on our brand new children’s menu, launching later this summer.

“We want children to either get creative or keep it simple and invent a cake that would tickle their own taste buds!  There are no restrictions, just let their imagination create their favourite recipe for a cake, traybake or cupcake!”

To enter children need to decide on a creative name and recipe, listing the key ingredients used. Drawings or pictures of the cake can also be included to bring the creation to life.

Recipes need to be sent to the Feathers Hotel in Ludlow or handed in at the tea room before 23rd August to be in with a chance of going through to the next round, which is the bake off itself.  They can also be emailed to

Wayne added: “Once we receive all the entries our tea room team will choose five finalists who will then be invited to actually bake their cake creation and bring it to the tea room for the all-important taste test judging!  We really look forward to seeing the creativity that I know young people have when it comes to cakes!”The shortlisted entries will have their cakes judged and will need to bring it to the tea room on Saturday 7th September. A winner will be officially announced on Monday 9th September and presented with a VIP gift and a voucher for four people to enjoy afternoon tea.  The winning cake recipe will also be re-created by head chef and sold in the tea room, as part of the new children’s menu.
