27th Sep 9am to 11.30am Macmillan Coffee Morning and Bake Off by Newmarketeer
Date: 31/08/2014 Time: 09:03:47
To raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support we are joining The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning (usually held on 26th) a day later on SATURDAY 27th SEPTEMBER at the pub, THE GEORGE at NEWMARKET during the morning 9am to 11.30am.

For a bit of fun, we are also making the event a 'Great Nailsworth Bake Off' competition as well.

How you can help:=

Turn up, eat cake, chat with friends, drink coffee (or tea), donate money !

Enter the ‘Bake Off’ competition, which involves making six identical bakes (cup cake sized)

two will be used for judging and four will be donated to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

More about the ‘Great Nailsworth Bake Off’.....

The ‘bakes’ can be cakes, miniature desserts, or even savouries, as long as they are ‘cupcake’ sized.

Bring to the pub on the morning of 27th, or to Jo’s house (2 The Grove, Newmarket) on the Friday evening.

Don’t bring crockery as we’ll display on cake stands. Helpful if you use disposable plates/containers.

We will need to list your name and a brief description of the bake along with your contact details.

All cakes will be sold on a ‘donations’ basis to raise money for Macmillan.

There are two age categories - 12 years and under and over 12’s.

A small winners prize will be awarded, but it’s really just for fun and to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The judge is yet to be confirmed but it will be someone who knows a thing or two about baking!!

Judging will take into account style and taste with bonus points for originality.

Many thanks, Nailsworth, we hope to see as many as possible on the 27th.

Thank you so much, it should be here in plenty of time.

Much appreciated.

I will try and upload some pics, it should be a pretty event as Newmarket Ladies do a 'take over' of the pub with cake stands, coffee pots, table cloths and bone china!!

All for such a good cause.

Excellent idea & let's hope it is well supported.

Savoury cupcakes may go down well with anyone who doesn't eat cake? I will see if Nigel Slater has any in his book. See you there!

Why not, thanks Debbie, can you drop them off?, or do you want me to collect?

Also

Cupcake refers to a rough sizing guide - it can be any kind of bake - pork pies included!! We hope to sample some lovely scones, pastries, puddings and tarts.

Don't forget to spread the word to the young bakers as we will have a prize for under 12's winner too!

A quick definition of 'cup cake sized' - I keep being asked and answer is 'any size you like, any shape you like!'

We want to display the cake entries on cake stands to help the judging and didn't want to be comparing a titchy brownie square with a family sized apple pie!

So it's ...

Little bakes - 6 identical individual smallish things!

It is for fun and for charity - no rule book will appear and no checking for soggy bottoms!!

Good for you, thank you.

What we really need are plenty of people to just turn up, drink coffee and eat cake as it's all to support Macmillan.

I have had some people say they don't mind baking a cake but are worried about it being a 'competition', really its just for fun and if you want to just bring a cake but not compete then that's fine!!

Just coming along is also really fine!!!
