How to hold a great bake sale

You don’t need to be an expert baker to make your event a success. There are plenty of tasty treats that are quick and easy to make.

Top tips to make your event great:

  • Plan in advance! If you’re looking to get help in the kitchen, set a date early on, so you have plenty of time to source your sous chefs. Remember, the more bakes you make, the more money you raise.
  • If you’re not able to get people to bake with you, it’s ok to buy some sweet treats… it’s not cheating.
  • Get all your friends and family to come and bring someone with them – the more the merrier!
  • Be inclusive! Remember you may have customers with different dietary requirements, so think about adding some vegan, gluten and dairy free options into the mix.
