The Great Coodes Christmas Cake Off

There are many fantastic bakers in Cornwall who are happily making Macmillan an extra delicious Christmas Cake in addition to their family bakes this year. The focal point of the stall will be a Nutcracker cake generously baked for Cornwall Macmillan by Jenny at Wadebridge Cakes. In return for a donation, visitors will be able to guess the weight of the cake, with the winner taking home this glorious creation.
