Cakes for Apes 2021 is here! We have made some significant changes to the event this year so that you can get involved from the safety and comfort of your own home.

Sign up now to ‘bake a difference’ to the lives of Critically Endangered orangutans!

Cakes for Apes 2020 saw people all around the world get baking despite an extremely difficult year due to the coronavirus outbreak. It was absolutely heart-warming to see all the photos of our supporters working hard to spread the word and raise vital funds for our Orangutan Rescue project in West Borneo.

This year, we are more prepared than ever for social distancing, virtual involvement and staying safe – whilst saving the orangutans! You can get involved in ‘The Great Ape Bake Off’, a Live Stream baking class and a recipe submission event. Sign up to Cakes for Apes 2021 to join the fun.

The money you raise will help our life-saving work rescuing orangutans from suffering, giving them all the care they need, and then releasing them back to the wild.

BAKE ALONG WITH CHETNA MAKAN!

To kick off the start of Cakes for Apes 2021 and the month of Ape-ril, we hosted an interactive livestream baking class with The Great British Bake Off star Chetna Makan!

The event is now available to watch online at your own leisure, where you can follow Chetna in making a delicious vegan chocolate ginger nut cake. Please do make a donation if you can!
