Better late than never but last week I decided to use my baking skills and put them towards a good cause. With Red Nose Day just over a week away I decided to try and organise an office cake sale. Restricted to baking after I get home from work, often a one and a half hour commute, I didn’t think I could put on much of a sale on my own so I roped in a colleague or two (and a few wives, husbands and daughters of work colleagues), set a time and plastered Mary Berry’s face around the office building.
Then came the tricky decision of what to bake…..two evenings of baking and I had ginger cake, a lemon Swiss roll, peanut butter cookies, blueberry, almond and orange cake, chocolate and cranberry brownies, chocolate chilli cake, and oatmeal and raisin cookies.
My only concern was would that be enough?? I knew a few people at work were baking but never expected all the contributions we got!! THANK YOU GUYS!!!! The total raised so far is……(drumroll please) £230.20!
