Levy Restaurants UK, Compass Group UK & Ireland’s sport, leisure and hospitality division, championed National Cake Week, 5 – 11 October, across its leisure venues in the UK.

National Cake Week brought out the very best in cake bakers and, during the six day national event, over 12,000 cake portions were sold at Leith’s heritage venues alone, all of which were freshly baked on site.

The Savill Garden at Windsor Great Park toasted the week with a trademark carrot, orange and ginger vegan cake, whilst the National Rail Museum’s opulent carriage, the Countess of York, marked the week’s baking celebrations with a choice between their garden and rainbow cake.

Led by head baker, Penny Antoniou, the team at Hatfield House produced 500 freshly baked goods every day during the week, with scones proving the most popular sweet treat, all served with clotted cream and jam.

To celebrate National Cake Week, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu stayed true to their motoring style with their traffic light cake. Head baker, Carol Clarke, who’s been at the venue for 30 years, led the team at Beaulieu as they made up to 150 cakes per day.

Anna Fenten, Head of Marketing at Levy Restaurants UK, says: “It’s great fun to be taking part in National Cake Week and showcasing our wonderful bakeries at our leisure venues throughout the UK.

“Levy Restaurants UK is committed to creating legendary experiences through strong partnerships with our clients and suppliers with a big focus on quality, British ingredients.  National Cake Week gave us the opportunity to celebrate our talented bakers who help enhance our visitors’ experiences with delicious cakes.”
