Sept. 29 – Great Ferndale Cake Off by Friends of Ferndale Library

FERNDALE, MI  – The Friends of the Ferndale Library are putting out a call for bakers to be contestants in the 2nd annual “Great Ferndale Cake Off” on Sunday, September 29. Last year more than 30 library lovers baked cakes to compete for prizes and bragging rights in the Friends of the Ferndale Library’s “Great Ferndale Cake Off.” The deadline for baking contestants’ submissions is September 15.

This family friendly event will be hosted in the Ferndale Library’s courtyard, providing a fun outlet for local bakers who are fans of reality TV shows like The Great British Bake Off and Cupcake Wars to prove their pastry prowess. And, folks with a sweet tooth will have a chance to sample some deliciously flaky and decoratively frosted desserts.

The Friends are a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting their library’s mission to serve all who live and work in Ferndale by building community connections, sponsoring special programs and raising funds to enrich library resources and featured events. Anyone can join this community for lovers of books, music, arts, and culture online, or by signing up at the library.  The Great Ferndale Cake Off is a Member Appreciation event that will double as a drive to sign up prospective new members. Admission is open to all current Friends of the Ferndale Library members, but anyone who is not a current member can sign up now at, or join on the day.

Any local bakers who join the Friends by competing in the Great Cake Off automatically receive a one year membership and an invitation to the Cake Off for your entire household. There is no cost to enter, and cakes don’t have to be fancy to win–contestants and families may see their own favorite recipe taking home top prize!

Contestants will present their very best cakes to be judged by a panel of local celebrity judges and compete for the coveted Judges’ Choice prize. Attendees will have a chance to taste and rate all the contestants’ creations and help select the top prize winner as well!
