Cake is brilliant, charities are ace, so it only seems reasonable that together they’ll make a damn fine match. Coupling the two is Borne2Bake, who are inviting people to enter a charity cake baking competition to raise money for a Birmingham-based charity. And for those that like to taste test, there’s the option to help pick the winners.
The competition takes place on Saturday 12 July with bakers dropping in the goods at 11am and the taste test starting at midday. It’s taking place at the New Inn in Harborne, so you’ll be able to get yourself a nice drink to go with all the charity cake (I recommend a nice Tom Collins cocktail). Categories up for judging include best cupcake, best decorated cake and best tasting cake. Prizes so far include a meal for two & bottle of wine at Zizzis, meal for two and drink each at The Plough, a £15 coffee voucher for Urban Coffee Co and a tray of Cupcakes from Fallen Angel Bakery.
Borne2Bake are raising money for Red Boots who are based in Moseley and are part of the Foundation for Conductive Education. They seek to work with children and families of children with neurological motor disorders, such as cerebral palsy. The organisers have seen the amazing work they do helping children unable to sit upright, walk, hold things or feed themselves progress to walk with braces, hold objects and some even feeding themselves.
