Two tables were needed to balance this super sponge which was a sweet replica of the Downham town sign. Gemma Cole once again baked a fantastic cake as part of the Downham Festival. Traders in the town clubbed together to pay for the ingredients for the cake, which was cut by the mayor, John Doyle, during a coffee morning on Wednesday.
Festival Committee chairmanthe Rev Alan Davies said: “We have had some impressive cakes over the years but this tops that for sheer size.”
