Cake stall SOS

Do you think the best part of election day is the food? Of course I would, what with me being both a pig and a glutton – nothing thrills me more than a display of home-made baked things or a sizzling BBQ with the waft of bacon.

If you’re lucky enough to be voting in a church hall, then you might just get a home-made jar of jam or lemon butter along with your piece of democracy. Most of us will trundle along to our local primary school where nabbing a bacon & egg roll or sausage in a bread will mean our hands are full enough that we can happily refuse the ‘how to vote’ pamphlets. Then after casting your vote, come out and buy up big at the cake stall. For the school, it’s one of the best fundraisers of the year.

No doubt if you have school-aged kids then have had the note home requesting that you whip something up for sale. Life being the busy thing it is though, you probably don’t have time to help out… or do you? YOU DO! I’ve got your back sisters – these cake stall donations are all simple, quick AND delicious.

    Election day has fallen on the same day as our school festival. My oven is currently running to provide muffins, anzac biscuits and cakes for our cake stall. You are right, this is the very best part of our democracy.

      oh no! What a crazy day! We were scared of that happening at our school, but we got our event in last Saturday. The BBQs are back out this weekend though – plus a very tired group of parents who seem to be the only ones who volunteer for everything!

      good luck with your fair!

    Great roundup of ideas! Maybe cake will make the whole voting process less traumatic – I think I’ll drive around till I find the best cake stall 😀

    Lots of yummy and clever suggestions. I made an orange cake and some brownies for my contribution to the election process. I wish I’d read your post first tho’.

    This post couldn’t have come at a better time, thank you! We have our Primary School’s sports carnival tomorrow and on Saturday it doubles as our local Polling Place. A quick cupcake whip-up looks on the cards. And how delish do those Pineapple Cakes look…? Mmm mmmmm… 🙂
