Simnel cake help celebrate Mothering Sunday

1 min read

SimmelCakeMOTHERING Sunday was made extra special for visitors to a Finchampstead church, thanks to a great British bake off.


Carolyn Fox, a member of St James Church in Finchampstead, has a tradition of baking Simnel cakes for the church for its Mothering Sunday services.

After the service, visitors were given a slice of the spicy, marzipan-ed, fuit cake to enjoy with their refreshments.

Mums were also given a special floral tribute to enjoy.

Simnel cakes have been eaten for centuries in England but, more recently, they have become a Mothering Sunday tradition, with different towns having their own special recipe and design or shape.

Carolyn has baked Simnel cakes for families at St James’ Church following its Mothering Sunday Services for many years.

She is pictured here in the Church Centre handing out slices to everybody.
