Chiltern Relocation and friends have been baking for a good cause. Comic Relief hold their fundraising extravaganza every two years and to mark the occasion we like to roll up our baking sleeves and run a cake stall in Beaconsfield.
This year Chiltern Relocation were keen to top the total from two years ago so needed to ‘think outside the cake stall’. In order to maximise cake sales Sharon visited some of the major businesses and estate agents in Beaconsfield to secure pre-orders.
If you thought you were seeing visions of red on Friday morning that would have been Sharon and friends in red noses, Comic Relief deely boppers and red tutus delivering the cake orders to offices in time for elevenses.
The Cake Stall was opened with great fanfare at 2pm by Town Crier Dick Smith and the Mayor of Beaconsfield Councillor Patrick Hogan – also wearing his red nose. The stall was located on the pavement outside the Chiltern Relocation office ready to attract passers-by and importantly the school run footfall.
We were blessed with sunshine and very generous customers who bought lots of cake and we were also very touched by the generosity of some who chose to just donate.
The cakes ranged from carrot to stem ginger, the obligatory chocolate, apple, victoria sponge, marble, lemon drizzle, fruit cake, chocolate banana and chocolate orange. There were plenty of cupcakes and brownies too. And the most popular cake was…the carrot cake!
