Cakehenge

 

Fancy making a pyramid out of cake or a scarab cup cake?

 

Be inspired by our Ancient Worlds gallery at Manchester Museum and get baking! Take a picture of your masterpiece and tweet @McrMuseum including the hashtag, #cakehenge

 

We will put them up on our Flickr and the best entries will be displayed on the big screen in the Museum on Big Saturday: Dig Now, Sat 13 July. You can also bring your cake along or have a go at shabti cake decorating!

 

If you cant make the Big Saturday, carry on baking till the end of the Festival of Archaeology (13 Jun–28 Jun) and remember to share your creations on Twitter.

Take inspiration from one of many our objects, maybe even our popular pre-dynastic hippo bowl…We can’t wait to see you entries!
