The Big Birmingham Bake – NEW Commonwealth Games inspired baking theme for July revealed!

To celebrate the amazing summer of sport ahead of Birmingham this year, The Big Birmingham Bake, which offers fun, immersive baking experiences for all, has announced a new baking theme for the month of July – Summer Sports Cake! 

The Big Birmingham Bake, located on Floodgate street in Digbeth, is the perfect day or night out for all, from date nights, to groups of friends, to hen dos and team away-days, everyone gets a chance to compete in their own bake off. 

The 90 minute sessions are hosted in a fully kitted out marquee, with 12 baking stations, recipe and ingredients pre prepared, a treasure trove of customisable decorations and is led by a team of professional bakers. From gingerbread grottos to shimmery crown cakes, every month sees a new baking theme. Bakers work together in pairs and at the end a winning team is named. 

This July, the theme is inspired by the amazing sporting events coming to Birmingham and bakers will be getting creative with sponges, buttercream and fondant to make an edible sporting arena. From Sandwell Aquatics Centre, to Edgbaston Stadium, there’s plenty to take inspiration from. Will you be the MVB (Most Valuable Baker)?

What’s more, for those who fancy and pre or post drink, or just fancy dropping by for a cocktail, the adjoining Garden Bar is a cosy beer garden open to all, serving bar favourites as well as delicious new cake-themed cocktails such as: Lemon Meringue, Bakewell-tini and Pix ‘n’ Mix Punch.
