The fifth CRY Great Cake Bake took place on Friday 25th November 2016, as part of Raising Awareness Week. We would like to thank everybody who took part in the CRY Great Cake Bake and for helping to make the event such a success.
Money is still coming in but we are delighted to say that we have raised over £27,000! We had over 110 people sign up for Great Cake Bake information packs and we are really pleased that the event has grown and for the continued support since the introduction of the event.
We have received some great stories about people’s events and seen some lovely photos of all the hard work that went into making them a success – see below. If you would like to add your Cake Bake photos or story to this page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The competition has now closed and the winners have been decided!
Top fundraiser for the Great Cake Bake 2016
We had so many wonderful totals this year, that any of the top 3 totals would have taken 1st prize last year! Thank you for all your generosity. However, the winners are…..
1st place – Adrian & Amanda Topp again take first prize this year, raising a fantastic £3,251.95 from their cake sale that was held in memory of their niece, Bethany Mycroft.
2nd place – Deirdre & Nicky Harris raised a wonderful £2,324.36 from their cake sale that was held in memory of Alan Lumley.
3rd place – Hilary Wagstaff raised a wonderful £2,004.48 from her cake sale in memory of Ethan Jones.
Best cake design for the Great Cake Bake 2016
The cake designs were again extremely impressive in the write-ups this year. It was a hard decision, but a panel of CRY employees debated over their favourites and the order went as follows…..
1st place – The impressive towering Christmas Tree cake from the Cake Bake that Theresa Owen held!
2nd place – The red heart themed cake from the Cake Bake that Deirdre & Nicky Harris held.
3rd place – The butterfly cake from the Cake Bake that Adrian & Amanda Topp held.
4th place – The indulgent chocolate cake from the Cake Bake that Graham & Jenny Loncaster held
We were impressed with the ingenuity of a couple of our supporters this year so we also awarded books to:
• Angharad Evans and her team of bakers for attempting the mannequin challenge as part of their Cake Bake! (Social media award)
• Narinder Mann who didn’t trust her baking skills and so held a CRY Curry Sale instead!
Great ideas and we look forward to hearing the innovative ways our Cake Bakers will be getting involved in next year’s event! The books are on their way to the winners now!
