The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning!!! This is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. People from all over the UK are encouraged to show their support and throw their own ‘Coffee Morning’. Any sales from teas, coffees and delicious cakes on the day are donated to this incredible cause. Last year they raised a staggering £29.5 million and this year (2017) they hope to smash this out of the ball park.
How did Bubble Design help?
We concocted a master plan!! A good friend of ours who goes by the name of Billy Bridgen is a dab hand at cooking and baking, in-fact, back in the day he was a cracking designer too – this said, his baking skills far exceed his design skills. We asked Billy if he could rattle us up a few cakes that we could sell in the studio, what ever was left over we would take to local Retford Businesses and sell, whatever we raised from the cake sales, we (Bubble) had agreed to double and donate to Macmillan.
I called Billy and he agreed, we left it to him to choose what he thought would sell, to say I was blown away when I went to collected them was an understatement, he worked his magic and made us 3 absolute stunners. First up he rattled us up a toasted marshmallow chocolate fudge brownie. Second up was Edd Kimbers most decadent brownie recipe ever, a salted cocoa brownie with burnt swiss meringue. Last but not least…. a Lemon and Poppy seed drizzle tray bake. Our very own Jess Gillatt lovingly twisted her Grandma’s arm to make us a beautiful Victoria sponge to throw in the mix.
Needless to say none of the above made it out of the studio… we sold every piece!!! At just £1 per slice (an absolute steal) we made just shy of 50 quid in cake sales which we will double and hand over to Macmillan.
