A CAKE fit for a queen is to be created in Harrogate and youngsters in the town can help design it.

Professional confectioners at Bettys Craft Bakery have received the Queen’s consent to create a cake to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.

Budding bakers from primary and junior schools across the county are invited to send in their creative ideas to turn into a four tier, hexagonal cake.

Those whose designs most inspire the cake decorating experts will be invited to the bakery to see their ideas brought to life.

Claire Gallagher, on behalf of Bettys Bakery, said: “It isn’t every day that there’s the chance to make a cake for the Queen and we can’t wait to share this exciting opportunity with local children.”

It’s not the first time Bettys has made a commemorative cake to take to Buckingham Palace. In the past they have created special cakes for both the Queen’s Silver and Golden Jubilees.
