Baking for a Cake Stall

On Saturday it was Ham Fair, a delightful annual event held on Ham Common.  My local church ran a Cake Stall, so last Friday I rolled up my sleeves and baked...and baked...and baked.

I  bought the disposable cake tins and trays  from Lakeland, and they proved to be  wonderful.  Using one batch of each recipe,  I baked three small  Banana Breads, and two lovely Lemon Drizzle Cakes.

Additionally I baked some Lunch Box Cookies, some with cocoa to make them even more chocolatey!

I also decided tray bakes might work well, so I made a chocolate sponge and a vanilla sponge and decorated them.  Then I  melted marshmallows and chocolate to make two Rice Krispie Fridge cakes.

The Chocolate Cake,
Oops! I forgot to take it, so we had to eat it ourselves!

I think I'm going to take a break from baking for a few days!

And I really think I need a new camera and to go on a course, the photos don't really do justice to the cakes, they did look lovely, and Oh! how I wish we could have smell on a food blog, wouldn't it be super?


  1. Wow! You must be baked out! They all look delicious. I really like the stars on the chocolate tray bake.

  2. What a bake-a-thon! I'm sure they were a big hit. And I love the idea of a smell-o-blog!

  3. All of those look amazing :)

  4. Thank you Miss Cake Baker, Kate and Nic, sometimes a day baking can be so satisfying! And then giving them away prevents me eating them...perfect!
