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
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.
