National AIDS Trust and the Cambridge Cake'n'Bake Club Bake Sale!

Happy Wednesday, folks! Whilst this isn't strictly a recipe from my Cake'n;Bake Club antics, I do think it's important and so wanted to share this post on my persoanl blog too...

We at the Cambridge Cake’n’Bake Club were recently contacted by the National AIDS Trust to ask for our help in raising funds and awareness through their Bake Aware initiative – a very exciting, and very tasty, initiative to encourage people to talk about the Birds and the Bees, and HIV awareness.

There are 100,000 people living with HIV in the UK, and 1 in 4 people don’t know they have it. Those who do have it still face discrimination in school and in the workplace, and this is what NAT are trying to stop.

On Sunday 19th May, Cake’n’Bake Club will be holding a Birds Vs Bees bake sale at the Cambridge Nursing Centre, 5 High Street , Chesterton , from 10am – 2pm. We’d love it if you could come along, treat yourself to some of our baked goods (and they are good!) and help us to raise funds for this very worthy cause. We’ve split into two teams, Teams Birds and Team Bees, and each team will be competing to raise the maximum funds for the charity. We’re going to put in all the hard work in our kitchens – for you; it’s going to be a piece of cake :-)

I'm part of Team Birds, and I'm planning to make some little birdy cake pops, some bird themed jam tarts, and some chicken "sausage" rolls :-) If you're in or around Cambridge on Sunday, feel free to pop along and say hello, and get yourself a little treat!

Happy Thoughts
