Charity Cake Bake Category: General, Other Foodiness

Rolo Cupcakes

My mum kindly offered my services a few weeks back to bake some cakes for the cake stall at the Zoes Place Summer Fete.

It seemed like a great idea at the time, come Saturday evening post-baking it seemed altogether exhausting.  We arrived to set up our stall very last minute, but despite the rush, it was nothing less than a huge success.


Every year Zoe’s have a cake stall & the local Greggs bakers supply them with numerous freebies to sell so we had a front stall of homemade cakes and a side stall of Greggs baked goodies.  I am pleased to say that the homemade cakes sold out quickly & we were left with lots of Greggs muffins and cookies but by the end of the day everything had been eaten.

Between us, we made:

  • 3 sandwich cakes
  • tray of rocky road
  • tray of mars bar rice crispy bake
  • 24 sponge cakes with icing
  • 24 rolo cupcakes
  • chocolate muffins
  • blueberry muffins
  • chocolate cornflake cakes

Cake Stall

We’re not sure of the final figure but it looks like we made just over £200 which will be doubled by my mum’s work, so it was certainly worth an exhausting days baking.

The Weather Lottery Category: General

A bit more exciting than all this rain.

Mr C signed up in aid of Zoe’s Place – it only costs £1 a week (25p per day x 4 days a week) – I think he’s been playing for two or three weeks and already he’s won 2 prizes. Now I wont be going on any holidays with a grand total of £4 but I think the odds are better than the normal lottery & you know where your % of charity money goes. Top prize is £10,000 too so whilst it may not be millions it’s a nice sum to win if your so lucky.
