Pawsome Baking Challenge

28 March 2021
Pawsome Baking Challenge
Bake a difference this April!

Our Pawsome Baking Challenge is back and registration is open now!

We’re asking cat lovers everywhere to rise to the occasion and show some love for our furry friends.

Join us this April and put your skills to the test to be in with a chance to win a pawsome prize! Just send us a photo of your best bake and donate some dough to help cats in need.

How to take part

The fun starts on 1 April when we will announce the four categories you can choose from. Entries can be made throughout the month and you can enter as many times as you wish.

New for this year, there will be junior prizes in each category and one overall junior winner. We’ve even got a Baking Fail prize, so it really doesn’t matter if you nail it or fail it!

To enter, all you need to do is make a donation* and send us a photo of your cat-themed bake. You can do this in a number of ways:

  • on social media using #PawsomeBaking
  • posting in our Pawsome Facebook group
  • by emailing Pawsome HQ at events@cats.org.uk

It must be your own baking and will be judged on three criteria: appearance, creativity and effort. (While we’d love to channel our inner Mary Berry and sample every bake, this sadly isn’t possible!)

The top three bakes in each category will receive a special wooden spoon and at the end of April, the overall winners (one adult and one junior) will be chosen by The Great British Bake Off’s Kim-Joy!

Pawsome prizes
Adults: In each category, one adult winner and two adult runners up will receive a Pawsome Baker wooden spoon. One overall adult winner will receive a signed copy of one of Kim-Joy’s books.

Junior: 
In each category, one junior winner and two junior runners up will receive a Pawsome Baker wooden spoon. One overall junior winner will receive a signed copy of one of Kim-Joy’s books. 
Thank you and best of baking luck!

*Donations are voluntary. If you’re able to make a donation, you'll be helping us continue to care for thousands of unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens each year.
