At the moment, the children at my school are involved in many activities to raise money for the flood victims in Pakistan.
Naturally, the teachers are in on the fundraising as well.
Today was our school’s Welcome Back BBQ.
Parents bring dishes to share, the PTA buys the sausages and beer, and the teachers usually just show up and eat.
This year, we decided to hold a cake sale. We sold cake raffle tickets and the winners were able to take home the cake.
I donated two of my favorite cakes.
I was up early this morning and baked the cakes for the afternoon BBQ.
Here’s a walk through of the process.
Visit the links for the full recipes.
Made 1 double-layered cake and 12 cup cakes
I was worried that the carrot cake wouldn’t sell due to it’s runny appearance, but amazingly, both cakes were gone within 5 minutes of hitting the table. One of the assistants offered so much money, she was allowed to bypass the raffle altogether.
My two cakes helped to send and extra €50 to Pakistan.
You see, this assistant is a new Grandmother and tomorrow she’ll be serving these cakes to her extended family as they welcome the new baby into the family.
I hope the cakes satisfy the needs of her family and the money helps to feed other hungry families in Pakistan.
