Baking vs Sport - guess which one wins?

Just donning an apron and baking a cake makes everything seem right with the world, doesn't it?

Daughter and I are currently enjoying watching the Sport Relief Bake Off (we recorded it) and howling with laughter at the celebrities' mistakes; how hard is it to make a banana loaf?

Daughter has now decided that she wants to do her own bake sale to raise money for Sport Relief (let's face it, neither of us are particularly sporty, so a bake sale plays more to our strengths) and has been deciding on what she wants to bake: lemon drizzle cake, chocolate rocky road cupcakes, red velvet cake, etc, etc.

We just need to decide on a date and get baking!

If you would like to do the same check out the Great Sport Relief Bake Off website for info and ideas.

Sport Relief is an initiative of Comic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England/Wales); SC039730 (Scotland)

I am relishing the opportunity of getting involved too. Hope you enjoy the baking and make some money in the process. Let's face it your cakes tend to be a winner!

This is so funny - if you could see my current post about cooking you'd know why. As someone for whom every baked thing turns out like a hockey puck, I can't think of anything worse than "donning an apron". I really envy you your enjoyment and your talent.

If I was any good at baking I might be tempted! Good luck with yours.
