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.

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.
