Bake Up 4 Make-Up

The week that we have been waiting for is soon to be upon us – Bake Up 4 Make-Up it’s the most delicious week of the year and it starts 12th February!

We have always been a nation that has enjoyed baking, but we are now a nation of obsessed bakers! Our wooden spoons started twitching the moment Mary Berry’s silver locks graced our screens.  With her tantalising, novel recipe ideas, and her twists on modern day classics, people all around the country were left drooling on their sofas.

Take part in  Bake Up 4 Make-Up and help us support people with cancer by holding your own baking themed fundraiser. Whether its fairy cakes, coffee cakes, sausage rolls or you make your own ‘showstopper’, we’d love for you to get involved.

Don those aprons, whip your inspired minds into action and bake to impress! Here are a few suggestions that we cooked up:

Star Baker
Get competitive and find your Star Baker. Hold a Valentine’s baking competition amongst your colleagues, friends or family. Create various categories; ‘best decorated’ or ‘tastiest Valentine treat’. Charge a small fee to enter and request donations for tasters to enjoy the award-winning deliciousness!

Cake Bake Sale
Ask colleagues to make and donate their signature cake and sweet treats for a lunchtime cake bake sale. Sell the yummy treats in the lead up to Valentine’s Day.

Bountiful Biscuit Baking
Why not use the free cookie cutters that come in your fundraising pack and get cookie creating with your children over half term? You could sell them to your neighbours or take then to school for an after school bake sale.

Sweep Stake
If baking and sweet things aren’t your thing you can still take part and raise vital funds for LGFB. Using the baking themed sweepstake poster in our Bake Up 4 Make-Up fundraising pack, hold a sweepstake amongst colleagues at work or friends and family. The proceeds raised are divided between the winner and LGFB.

Whatever you decide to do, we would love to hear from you.  Order your fundraising pack now – inside is all you need to plan the perfect baking event.
