Time to party! Chitty’s Cakes turns 1 year old!

Posted by Chris Pettitt on January 08, 2018

Here’s some SWEET news for you – Chitty’s Cakes Shop celebrates its first birthday at the end of this month and there’s a fairly big celebration planned! That’s right, on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th January, the Custard Factory’s joyfully-creative resident cake store is hosting a fun-filled shindig in which you’ll find freebies, special offers and general merriment plus a fancy-dress competition to end all fancy dress competitions!

Across the two-day celebration, the festivities will include:

🍰 FREE cupcake for everyone who likes, follows or tags Chitty’s Cakes on social media during the two days 🍰

🍰 A huge collaborative cake that you can join in the decorating of by piping some colourful icing, graffiti style! 🍰

🍰 Pass the Parcel – every customer who makes a purchase gets to unwrap a layer and may win a small (or big!) prize 🍰

🍰 Voting for your favourite NEW flavour to go onto the Chitty’s cake menu in February 🍰

🍰 For younger ones (or the young at heart), there’s colouring-in of paper chefs hats and wordsearches (with prizes!) 🍰

🍰 Best of all is a fancy dress competition… come dressed as a cake or dessert (creative wordplay and tenuous links to culinary delights are actively encouraged – for example ‘Fairy Cake’ lends itself nicely to a fairy costume. We’re sure you can be even more imaginative than that and can’t wait to see your ideas. Even if you can’t make the competition yourself, you can get involved by following Chitty’s on Instagram (@chittyscakes) and voting for your favourite outfit.🍰

The Chitty’s Cakes birthday celebrations are a great excuse to come down to the Custard Factory and enjoy some of the other amazing things going on too. Watch a film at The Mockingbird Cinema and have lunch at Kanteen or The Old Crown, do a spot of shopping at Sara Preisler and the AH Contemporary Glass studio, and perhaps even embark on a round of crazy golf at Ghetto Golf!

Come and join the celebrations this January with Chitty’s Cakes and the rest of Digbeth’s fabulous community!
