An East Lincolnshire bake off is to turn top attractions including Skegness Pier, Butlin's and Fantasy Island into cake for a huge edible map The cake event is looking to find 100 teams or individuals to put their baking skills to the test. Favourite attractions, places, historical landmarks will be made to create a cake-sized map. The map will be a 100sq display and will include the areas market towns and it will all be eaten! It is part of this year's so festival, an outdoor visual and performing arts extravaganza taking place across East Lindsey this summer. If you want to be involved, enter here and put Sunday, July 2 in your diaries to invite your family and friends to grab a slice of the action. Simon Preston of Grace Food Innovation, is the man behind this project, he created a similar cake fest of Edinburgh in 2015 and in Stirling last year. Community group County Care has been working with SO Festival organisers to provide ideas of edible attractions. So far this has included a giant wheel at Botton's Pleasure Beach, the pyramid at Fantasy Island, Skegness clock tower, the Jolly Fisherman, Skegness Pier, the RNLI lifeboat station, Fairy Dell Paddling Pool, Natureland Seal Santuary, The Embassy Theatre and Butlin's. They are looking for people to create donkeys, caravans and sticks of rock represented on the map. County Care will be baking wind turbines for the map.
