Badger cake, Bake for nature

How to take part

Join hundreds of other bakers across the UK in raising money to protect the nature we love. To help you create tasty nature-themed bakes and get the most out of your baking, here's our step-by-step guide to taking part in Bake for Nature...

Plan

You've decided you're Baking for Nature - that's the first step! But now you need to think about when you're going to hold your event and also what you're going to bake.

Try to get as many people involved as possible, so pick a date when your friends and family can get involved too. Involving others means you don't have to do all the baking yourself and you can make lots more lovely sweet treats too.

But whether you go for a cosy evening with a few friends or family, a bake sale in a busy office, or an incredible celebration of baking, it's time to let your imagination run wild and have some fun.

The free pack contains an inspiration guide to give you some ideas, or why not try one of Great British Bake Off-winner Frances Quinn's tasty treats?

Tell the world

To make your Bake for Nature a success, now is the time to tell people about it.

Helpfully, your free pack contains posters for this very reason! Simply pop in the details about your event and start spreading the word.

Tell all your friends, family and colleagues. The more of you that spread the word, the better your sale will be and the more cash you'll raise for nature. See the Promoting your Bake for Nature page for some extras to help your promote your event.
