Summer Get Cakey

Now the Sun is starting to shine and we are easing our way out of Covid restrictions we want to encourage our lovely supporters to host a Summer Get Cakey event. We have everything you need to organise your cake sale, apart from the cakes!

Last year we worked with Semi Finalist from the Great British Bake Off, Beca Lyne-Pirkis, to find out her best tips and she shared a lovely chocolate brownie recipe. These resources can be found on our website along with an organiser pack, bunting, menu page and poster. For the first 50 events organised we have an additional Get Cakey pack to give away. The special pack includes cupcake toppers, stickers, badges and chefs hats to decorate.

Louise, founder of the charity said, “I love baking and wanted to create a simple event that can help us raise vital funds for our work. A cake sale is a great way to bring your friends together and after the last 18 months a good catch up is long overdue.”

Every single penny of money raised goes directly back into ensuring the support we provide to military children can continue. It funds vital projects, resources and initiatives such as Little Troopers Treasures, X-ray of Feelings and Little Troopers at School that are fundamental for the children of our British Armed Forces.  We also help empower parents of little troopers to learn how to deal with the emotions that are often faced, including how best to overcome the unique challenges and how to remain connected to a parent even though separated by miles.

To inspire you to organise a Get Cakey event, Great British Bake Off’s Beca, whose husband serves with the Royal Army Medical Corps, will be hosting her third ‘Bake along with Beca’ over the Summer, keep an eye on our social media for the date.
