The eighth annual CRY Great Cake Bake took place on Friday 22nd November 2019, as part of Raising Awareness Week. We would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who took part and for helping to make the event so successful.
We are delighted to say that we have raised over £38,000 so far which is a new record-breaking total! Over 100 people signed up for Great Cake Bake packs and we are really pleased with how the event has continued to grow since its introduction in 2012.
We are also thrilled with the response to the brand new games and competition sheets that were introduced to the packs in 2019. It is fantastic to see these being used amongst your magnificent bakes in the lovely photographs and write-ups we have received so far.
Please see stories and photographs of your efforts below, as well as all our fabulous competition winners – if you would like to add your cake bake photos or story to this page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you once again for taking part in the CRY Great Cake Bake and for your support of CRY’s campaign. We hope to have you join us for the 2020 event which will be part of our 25th anniversary celebrations!
We would also like to thank the wonderful chefs and companies who have so generously supported us this year, the event would not be as successful without their support.
Rainbow Dust kindly donated edible red glitter and red metallic paint for the packs, and it has been great to see these items used to decorate your fantastic cakes!
The Family Building society provided sponsorship for the cake bake once again this year and we are so grateful for their continued support of the event.
We would also like to say a special thanks to Hamper.com for donating the lovely hamper which is being sent to the winner of the ‘best cake design’ for 2019!
