A sweet celebration of Yorkshire Day

White rose cupcakes from Thomas the Baker offer the real taste of Yorkshire this August 1st

Every celebration deserves a special cake – and none more so than a day in honour of God’s Own County itself: Yorkshire!

This Yorkshire Day (1st August) Thomas the Baker stores across the region will be rising to the occasion by selling special Yorkshire Day cupcakes. With a light and airy vanilla sponge base, complete with decadent white rose buttercream icing and leaf decorations, it’s the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon cup of Yorkshire Tea.

Retailing at £1.50, for every cupcake sold a 50p donation will be made to the family business’s chosen charity – the Alzheimer’s Society.

First introduced officially 42 years ago, Yorkshire Day celebrates centuries of proud Yorkshire traditions across the ridings.

John Thomas, founder of Thomas the Baker, said: “As a Yorkshire company through and through it seems only right to mark the day with something special. If people want a taste of Yorkshire to celebrate 1st August they can choose a white rose cupcake, or we have plenty of other local treats, such as Yorkshire Brack loaf, parkin or curd tarts. We’ve got so much to be proud of in the region, with food and drink that’s admired all over the world, and it should be something we shout about!”

The Yorkshire Day cupcakes will be on sale in Thomas the Baker stores from 1st – 3rd August.

Thomas the Baker was established in 1981, with the opening of a bakery in Malton, quickly followed by Helmsley a year later, and now standing at 33 shops across Yorkshire.
