The star of Netflix’s extreme cake makers will be baking a special commemorative cake to celebrate a council’s 50th anniversary.

The organisers have asked more than 2,000 primary school children to design a special commemorative cake to celebrate Hyndburn Borough Council’s 50th anniversary.

Molly will then create the winning design, which will be unveiled to the public at the Food Festival on Saturday, June 1 (10am-4pm) in Accrington town centre. Competition forms will be delivered to Year 2 and Year 3 children from 36 Hyndburn primary schools.
