Bake for a good cause..

 Help For Heroes – as many of you know – is a charity organisation put together to help injured servicemen and women of Britain. One off-shoot to this cause is the annual Colossal Cake Sale in which participants from all over the country set up their own events and stalls where they can sell cakes they've made to raise money for the charity.



Last Last year alone around 700 eager bakers from all walks of life helped to raise over £160,000 in total, so it's easy to see why it's such a popular event. It's delicious, fun and best of all it's really helping the community. 

Share your secrets

 So if you want to get in on the act you can sign up the web site where you will receive a fundrasier pack to help you get started. Once you've done that all you need is a venue and some rallied up support to really make your event a success. 

By taking part in the Colossal Cake Sale this year you can even showcase your own baking skills. Between 20th April and 5th May you have the opportunity to not only raise money for a worthy cause but to show off some of your famous or family cake recipes. Whether you're an amateur baker or a little bit more professional this is a wonderful chance to tell people about your skills.

There's also nothing to stop you from passing your recipes onto other baking enthusiasts. Many people are interested in trying to make things themselves that they are interested in. If you have a laptop or tablet PC simply load up your recipes on-screen (you could just type it out in a word processor) so people buying your cakes can see for themselves how to make them. This is a great way to get people interested in both your cakes and in helping others.
