Cake Fest celebrations begin - with help from Dyslexia Scotland's baker Celia

Public events taking place across Scotland from August-October are set to benefit from £233,000 from EventScotland’s National Funding Programme, it has today been revealed.

A total of 21 events will receive grants from EventScotland, part of VisitScotland’s Events Directorate. One of these events is Cake Fest Scotland, a sweet celebration of Scotland’s top 100 architectural masterpieces and part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design’s Festival of Architecture.

To celebrate funds granted to Cake Fest Scotland, Dyslexia Scotland’s Celia Richardson specially created a ‘£233k’ cake and presented it at Cowane’s Hospital in Stirling. Cake Fest will take place in Stirling on September 11, when 100 teams of amateur bakers will gather to set-down their representations of our most famous landmarks in cake on an entirely edible map of Scotland.

Celia will again be donning her whites to ‘bake’ Dumbarton Castle in honour of Dyslexia Scotland’s President and three-time F1 World Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart, who was born in West Dunbartonshire.
