Big Kids Day Cake Stall

Tomorrow is Big Kids Day and our school is having a 'Mufty' (free dress) day. All the children have been asked if they can wear something orange, the colour of Big Kids Day.

The school is also holding a cake stall to raise money for the charity. So I whipped these up this morning while I was on the phone to my Mum in Australia. I have a headset so I can chat and cook at the same time. There will be cakes and biscuits starting at 10p each. Let's hope they sell out.

The icing was supposed to be orange and white swirls but I didn't make the orange a strong enough colour so the colours blended in a little. I didn't want to add too much colouring as I am conscious of the poor teachers and what they will have to cope with in the afternoon with sugar and food colouring fueled pupils!


  1. Thank you for your lovely comments. Your cakes are fabulous. It is so nice when parents make the effort to make something look pretty, something which is sometimes lacking at my daughter's school. Wait and see, yours will sell out in no time at all, I'm sure of it!

  2. One thing I miss is actually making cakes for the school cake stall. I enjoyed the icing bit most!

  3. 10p! For that price (given the favourable exchange rate and all) I'd buy the lot and ship them home to proudly pass off as my own. The blighters here charge a euro. They look great. And I'm bowled over by baking on the phone.
