All you have to do is buy one (or more) tickets in the categories you want to enter before midnight on Wednesday 19th August, then deliver your entries to The Animal Sanctuary, Newgate, Wilmslow SK9 5LN between 10am-1pm on Saturday 22nd August for judging and feedback from professional bakers Kate and Sarah, owners of the award-winning Silver Apples Bakery in Stockport.

There will be prizes for first, second and third place in each category. Judging will take place from 3pm on Saturday 22nd August.
