Macmillan Coffee Morning – Fri 30th Sept
Macmillan Cancer is in it’s 26th year hosting it’s flagship fundraiser World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 30th September. Coffee morning is a fabulous opportunity to get together, eat cake and raise money for a fantastic and worthy cause.
Whether it’s an office bake off, afternoon tea with friends or selling your baked goods door to door Macmillan continues to make sure no-one suffers from cancer alone. I attended a Macmillan baking masterclass taught by burlesque baker Charlotte White.
M&S are an official partner of the Coffee Mornings and provided the baking ingredients at the event.
We kicked off the night making salted caramel and milk chocolate thumbprint cookies. Whisking, rolling and a bit of praying that they come out the oven edible. The moto of the night was “Bake it or fake it” learning to ice and decorate a pre brought Victoria sponge. I have to say I was very proud of my piping skills before the heat got to the buttercream.
Note to self sprinkles and glitter makes any baking disaster worthy of star baker.
