A shop that specialises in supplying cake decorating equipment is marking its 30th anniversary by holding a cake competition.

A Piece of Cake opened on May 7 1985 and still goes strong today in the same location in Thame in the Upper High Street.

To celebrate co-founders Jenny Walker and Norma Laver are inviting you to get creative and design any cake of any shape and any size.

Mrs Laver said: “Some cake making competitions have very strict rules but we want people to have fun with it so if people submit their cakes then the judges can decide where they fit in.”

Mrs Walker and Mrs Laver were introduced to each other by Tombi Peck in 1979, when they both went to classes taught by her at the Thame Adult Education Centre.

They first worked together on a cake for a street party to celebrate the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana.

Mrs Laver added: “We hoped for success but didn’t think we would get to thirty years.

“We both have very supportive families.”

Judging for the cake competition takes place at Christchurch in the Upper High Street on Saturday, May 9 from 10.30am to 5pm.
