Baking competition for RHCP's Simmonds launch

Random House Children's Publishers (RHCP) is launching a bakery competition to celebrate today's publication (5th June) of Ellie's Magical Bakery: Best Cake for a Best Friend by paralympian athlete Ellie Simmonds.

The competition calls for schools to bake a cake for Simmonds then post pictures on Twitter with the hashtag #EllieSimmondsBakeOff. Simmonds will pick the best cake and will visit the winning school. The school will also win a set of books from RHCP and cakes from London bakery Bea's of Bloomsbury.

RHCP announced it was publishing Ellie Simmonds after signing a four-book deal in January with The Blair Partnership.

The series is aimed at readers aged six and over and is illustrated by Kimberley Scott. The second book, Perfect Pie for a Perfect Pet, will hit the shelves in September.
