As we all know, Friday 18th March is this year’s Comic Relief – so I thought I’d lend a helping hand by using my baking skills to raise money for charity.
Last week, Staffordshire University’s Cheerleading Squad arranged a bake sale to raise money for the charity and for themselves. My housemate, Lindsay, is a member of the Scarlettes and was baking cookies when I come home from lectures one day. So naturally, being the cook-a-holic I am, I was desperate to get involved and show off my baking skills!
After being told what delicious cakes the girls were making, I decided I had to make something different.
I cooked a batch of twelve strawberry cupcakes, and another batch of vanilla and cookie cakes. After making them I still had loads of mixture left and decided to make mini tasters for passers by so they’d be attracted to the cake stalls – and pay more for the cakes!
After selling the cakes in two different places for three hours, the cheerleaders managed to sell the majority of them, and raised a whopping £160!
Massive well done to the Scarlettes ❤
