Marden Edwards Macmillan Cake Sale 2021
Post date: 13 October 2021
We all know the Marden Edwards staff aren’t averse to a little homemade cake, and when that cake results in a financial donation to Macmillan Cancer Support, then things can’t be bad.
Slaving over a hot stove!
Late into the night on September 29th our talented bakers were mixing, baking, icing, decorating and adding the finishing touches to a fabulous selection of home-baked cakes and other delicious delights all in preparation for the Marden Edwards Cake Sale for Macmillan on September 30th!
Even those who lack baking skills wanted to participate to ensure the success of our Macmillan cake sale, opting for a variety of pre-baked cakes, cookies and other sweet delights from local vendors.
Marden Edwards favourite cakes
Our bakers provided an astonishing selection of cakes, cookies and other sweet and tasty naughtiness, including:
- traditional Victoria Sponge cake
- rich and decadent Chocolate cake
- sticky Gingerbread cake
- delicious Lemon cake with lemon curd and double cream
- Chocolate cornflake treats
- a variety of chocolate bars
- Peanut cookies
- Chocolate meringues
- Chocolate cup cakes
- Belgian chocolate cookies
- Lemon drizzle cake
From that list it certainly looks like Chocolate is high on the list of priorities when it comes to the flavour experts at Marden Edwards!
The Marden Edwards cake selection:
Marden Edwards Accounts Administrator, Wendy Gain, said of the event, “We are really chuffed…. there have been some very generous donations… it has to be noted that the majority of cakes were home baked, which makes it special…. who doesn’t enjoy a home baked cake”?
