Birmingham History Cake Challenge for Museum Cake Day
Culture Themes’ museum cake day #MusCake is back again on June 25th. So it’s time to celebrate with a new cake challenge! This year we are challenging you to bake a Birmingham History inspired cake (or biscuits) and to post a picture of your creation on our Facebook page or tweet us. The best entry will receive a prize and feature on the Facebook page.
If you would like to enter the competition you have until 4pm on June 24th. Only one entry per person! The competition will be judged by curators at Birmingham Museums. We will announce the winner via twitter and Facebook on June 25th. We will also tweet all your cake competition entry images using the #MusCake hashtag on the same day. See the competition rules.
If you are looking for inspiration here are a few objects from our Birmingham history collection:

Or if you are feel really adventurous, how about a Birmingham building inspired cake?

Good luck everyone – we can’t wait to see your Birmingham inspired cakes and biscuits!
