Farmer’s Market Cake Stall – Thanks

A big thank you to everyone who donated ingredients, baked and came along to help out at our cake stall on Saturday. Special thanks too go to all of those wonderful people who braved the mud and early morning cold to help set up and to those students who helped write extra labels and who handled the money for most of the morning. We had a great day in the kitchen on Friday and were rewarded with a lovely sunny morning and a very busy market day with some famous faces coming by our stall. Some of the cakes and slices donated were quickly snapped up by families who came along to work and there were one or two that had to be kept under guard they were so good! With the help of some young hawkers (thank you grade 2!) going out into the fray with baskets loaded with Smarty cupcakes, raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes, Anzacs, gingerbread and lemon slice, we sold out before the market closed.

It was fabulous to work alongside our students using their maths and developing their public speaking skills at the same time as raising money for their school!

It was all good experience in the lead up to Spring Fair and we came away with lots of enthusiasm and ideas for our next cake stall.

If you have recipes for delicious cakes, biscuits or slices that aren’t too complicated to make, please send them to me at (there are some of us who would especially like to hear from the bakers who donated something for Saturday!) We’re aiming to put together a folder of recipes to help the classes who are organising the cake stall for Spring Fair – and our final Collingwood Children’s Farm Farmer’s Market stall for the year on Saturday 9th December!

Thanks again for a great day.
