Capital of Cake
...but only one place to do it – the North York Moors & Coast!
Britain’s ‘Capital of Cake’ has an incredible number of places where you can enjoy a slice or two of the nation’s favourite tasty treat. So many, in fact that we've launched a dedicated ‘Capital of Cake’ website, showing you our favourite ‘sweet spots’ and are busy adding even more for 2016!
Teashops in tranquil villages, cottage B&Bs and cookery schools, afternoon tea in stately homes and historic houses, not to mention hotels, pubs, cafés and bakeries – all put cake centre stage in the North York Moors.
Which of our ‘50 Tastes of Cake’ will be your favourite? Whether you’re a walker, cyclist, holidaymaker or foodie, you’re invited to tuck in to delicious confections, local bakes, classic cakes and regional specialities, from ‘Moggy’ to ‘Courting Cakes’.
The winner bakes it all
We’d love you to be part of the action. All you have to do is:
- Find a great place for cake on the website
- Eat as much cake as possible during your visit (we know! tough job!)
- Take a selfie, or a photo of your favourite place and their cake, and share it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #capitalofcake
We’ll share the best of the pictures – find out more at www.capitalofcake.com
We've also got a #CapitalofCake Pinterest board so you can see some of the fantastic cakes that can be enjoyed around the North York Moors and Coast!
