Hi, Well, only I could choose the hottest day of the year to hold an afternoon tea/bake sale! Oh for the gift of clairvoyance! 🌞 🌞 🌞
So there I am, with most of my cakes containing buttercream or ganache, desperately trying to keep them cool (I ended up putting them in the garage) red faced and swapping out tea cups for tumblers of soft drinks! I don’t cope well with heat at the best of times, but thankfully all went well. We opened all the windows and the door in the conservatory, dug out the fan, and spilled out into the garden.
I was so busy that I totally forgot to take pictures of the cakes before we started, so you’ll just have to imagine what they looked like before they were cut into 😋
All in all, we raised £150! I am so pleased to support this charity. My grandma had breast cancer, and recently someone very close to me had a bit of a ‘scare’, a lump which was thankfully benign, and has now been removed. It just highlights how much has improved in the intervening years. Early detection and treatment is so much better now, and our support of charities like Breast Cancer Care plays an important part of that.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated on the day.
