This week at work we’ve been participating in the McMillan coffee morning. Each day this week someone has baked some cakes and brought them in to share. Each cake has cost between 50p to £1 and whoever wants a cake has had to donate into the fund. It’s been organised by one of the girls in the office and I said I’d donate but probably wouldn’t do any baking – mainly because I’m currently not allowed to eat the cake mix! But she emailed this morning wanting volunteers to bake for tomorrow. My good sided nature gave in and I volunteered the hubby to bake some cakes! He loves baking and has been wanting to make cakes for a while. I’ve agreed to help with the cake decorating which means trying to make some nice butter icing!

Here’s the result!


We’re going to cut it up into 16 slices and charge 50p per slice. That should make £8 so not bad!

{edit} The cake went down a treat! My workmates complimented the chef (the hubby)! I did have 1/4 of the cake coming home but I think that was because everyone was too stuffed with cake from the rest of the week! {/edit}

      I have no idea how much we made. I wasn’t the organiser but we ate a lot of cake! 🙂
