For our October Cake Club we also had a little book sale! All money taken for books was donated directly into the charity pot. If there is interest in these book sales then we could look to hold more! If you have any books you wish to sell for charity please feel free to bring them along.
Now... onto the cakes!
This month was Halloween-themed and we had a very distinctly orange coloured table! The cakes were simply incredible this month with everybody pulling out the stops. In honour of Great British Bake Off Jordan Cox brought along a Frasier Cake! Very impressive and delicious!
Liana's son Finley joined in the action too and was really chuffed to see his marshmallow pops flying off the table along with mum's cupcakes - he can't wait to come along to his next cake club in November now!
We had THREE favourite cakes this month, as voted for by you! Laura Brown's Chocolate and Orange Sponge Cake, Helen's Chocolate and Orange Sponge Cake and Liana's Cupcakes. Laura received a little token prize in congratulations. :-)
We held a little raffle and prizes flew off the table. If you would like to donate anything towards the raffles we hold please feel free to bring anything along. If you are a business then we will happily display your business cards next to the raffle prizes you have donated by way of thanks.
Do you know what else we did this month? BROKE OUR £3000 fundraising total! In just over 12 months we have raised over £3000 for charitable causes, how amazing is that?! £3000 worth of cake, how delicious!
Our November Cake Club will be held on Sunday 25th November at 2:30pm at the Malt Cross. We will be back at Fothergills in the new year, but for now they have Christmas orders to fulfill and so we're having a little tour around Nottingham. When you arrive at the Malt Cross head directly up the stairs on your left as you walk in, and we'll have the event signposted too!
Our November event will be CHRISTMAS THEMED as it is our last event of 2012! Where has the year gone?! So many sprinkles, so little time!
Note: For November's cake club please remember to bring your own serving plate, cut your cake into a suitable number of pieces/bring your own knife and most importantly... get ready for a cake-poc-alypse!
