Third bake sale raises £32.60

Thanks to colleagues at Racepoint for raising £17.60, and to Hal for another generous donation of £10 (and for cleaning up after me once again!). These two lonely cakes were left over, so I'll be trying to sell them to my mum and dad later today!

Update: sold the last two cakes to mam and dad for a generous £5, bringing the total to £32.60.

Third Cakes for Life Bake Sale

It's December, so the third bake sale definitely had to have a festive feel, but I decided not to go OTT with decorations. The black forest cupcakes look nice and wintry because of the snow. The others don't look very festive, but they're made with ginger and cinnamon so should taste just like Christmas!

Credit goes to Amy Lane for her black forest recipe (although I did improvise a bit too) and to Hummingbird Bakery for the ginger cupcake recipe.

Second bake sale raises £43.59

It's taken me a little while to update this, but I'd like to thank all my colleagues at Racepoint for showing their support once again and helping me raise £33.59 for Cancer Research UK. A special shout out to Hal for cleaning up the mess I made in the kitchen and for a very generous donation of £10, taking the grand total up to £43.59 for my second bake sale. After just two bake sales and some generous donations from friends and family who haven't even tried the cakes yet, I've reached 26% of my target for the year. Maybe I should up the ante! Watch this space for a festive bake sale coming very soon....
