There is the chance to showcase your baking skills and win prizes over the Bank holiday weekend when Exmouth RNLI holds a great cake bake competition.

The May 26 event, at the Queen’s Drive boathouse, is to raise funds for the launch and recovery vehicle for the Shannon-class lifeboat, due in 2014.

Entries can be left at the lifeboat station between 9am and 11am on the day of the competition, ready for judging which takes place between 11am and 2pm.

The crew hope bakers, young and old, male and female, will take part.

The prize giving will follow the judging, plus from 3pm there will be a tea and cake sale, open to all.

The categories are: Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle cake, fruit cake, plain scones, fruit scones and savoury scones.

There will also be a prize for the best decorated cake.

Beryl Cole, fundraising team secretary and organiser, said: “This is a great opportunity for cake bakers of all ages and genders to get involved.

“We hope people will come along not only to enter their cakes, but also to see the wonderful cake display and enjoy eating some cake with a cup of tea or coffee with us.”

Entry is £3 for first cake and £2 for further entries.

Entry forms are available from the RNLI shop.
