Bettys Craft Bakery in Harrogate has received consent to create a celebration cake for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Confectioners at the bakery are enlisting the help of local schoolchildren to inspire its design.

Budding bakers and creatives from primary and junior schools across Yorkshire are being invited to send in their ideas to Bettys, which may be used in the creation of a four-tier, hexagonal cake.

Those whose designs are used in some way will be invited to the bakery to see them brought to life when the cake is created.

Bettys has previously made cakes for the Queen’s Silver and Golden Jubilees.
