The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning with Macmillan Cancer Support

Full of sweet treats and enough sugar to fuel the week, we took part in the Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. We had so many delicious homemade cakes for such a worthy cause, we thought they were too good not to share…

The macaroon cake with edible gold leaves won the prize for ‘best looking’. Close on it’s leaves was the delicious floral sticky toffee cake. The brownie and victoria sponge slider burgers let us enjoy dinner and dessert all in one. We then finished with a slice of homemade raspberry and elderflower cake which was worthy of a Paul Hollywood handshake.

The BBQ Blondie took top spot for taste, with some close competition from the mouth-watering honey and walnut cake. The chocolate cake and the banana/chocolate chip cake with fudge icing left everybody saying ‘just a slither’ and then going back for thirds. Alongside brownies, millionaire shortbread, white chocolate cakes and more, it was a great success with lots of star bakers.

Thank you to all who helped towards the judging of the top spots. It was a hard job, but somebody had to do it…

Finally, thank you to all who spent a lot of time baking,  and all the donations received on the day. We are incredibly proud to have supported such a worthy charity with a fantastic coffee morning.
