Market Place, Bolton is excited to announce that they have been featured on Channel 4’s popular show ‘Extreme Cake Makers’.

The episode, which was aired at 5:30pm on Tuesday 2nd April 2019, was filmed during last year’s Bolton Food and Drink Festival and featured the spectacular cake that was designed to look like a mummy emerging from a gold sarcophagus - in keeping with the centre’s Egyptian theme.

The theme for the four-day event, which runs annually across the August bank holiday weekend, was inspired by Bolton Museum’s temporary relocation to Market Place, while their permanent premises were under redevelopment.

The baker of this spectacular cake was multi award-winning Cake Artist, Rosie Dummer, AKA Rosie Cake Diva, who is currently starring in the Channel 4 show. Rosie is no stranger to baking big cakes, having taken on the challenge to bake a full sized member of The Grenadier Guards as well as a replica of Big Ben and the more locally renowned landmark, The Steel Man.

Celebrity Chef Michael Caines was in attendance at the food festival to witness the unveiling of the incredible cake and cut the first slice.
