14/08/2020 - Baking Competition

Bath Cats & Dogs Home bring you a bank holiday weekend online fête! Replete with activities for you, your family and your pet. This weekend should have been our annual Fun Day, but instead hang up your own bunting and join us to raise funds for cats and dogs in need – we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome over 1200 animals every year and rely on your support to continue to be open for them – even when the country is closed! For more details on our Fun Weekend, please click here

Baking Competition

Put your creative hats and pinnies on, because we want to see your best cat or dog-themed bakes for our very first Baking Competition!

We have Adults and Children (under 16s) groups, and you can bake cakes, biscuits or cupcakes but it must be a cat or dog theme.

Our judge!

We are very excited to announce that Ping Coombes, local chef and Masterchef Champion, will be judging the entries! 

"I am delighted to be supporting Bath Cats and Dogs Home Baking Competition. My family adopted our gorgeous cat Roxy from the home and she has brought so much fun and joy into our lives. So pop on your pinnies, grab your spoons and get baking to raise much needed cash for pusses and pooches in need."



The winner of the Children's category will receive an animal-themed baking set.

The winner of the Adult's category will win a ticket to one of Ping's virtual cookery lessons! Ping specialises in incredible Malaysian food - upcoming classes are for Satay and Laksa. More details here.

How to Enter

•    Donate at least £4 (or more if you are able to)  
•    Then send us a photo of your canine/feline baking creation to Mandy at, with your name and whether you are entering our Adult or Children’s category. 
•    Once we have your photo we’ll upload it to our online gallery for all our supporters to see.
•    Once we have closed for entries, Ping Coombes, Masterchef Champion, will choose a winner from each category.

Bath Cats and Dogs Home Baking Competition will be open for entries for 2 weeks, starting on Friday 14th August 2020 and closing at the end of the Bank Holiday Weekend, Monday 31st August at 5pm. The winners will be announced the following week. Good luck!
