Baking for Street Children


February 9th was a special day for me. I held my first ever cake sale at my offices to raise funds for StreetInvest. For those of you who don’t know, StreetInvest is the charity I work for in Twickenham. StreetInvest supports street children worldwide through training street workers to be ‘there’ with and for street children, on the streets where they are.

We have a small office in a huge building of offices. We got a leaflet saying they were holding a coffee morning on February 9th for all offices on our floor. So, I took this as an opportunity to ask if I could do a bake sale! It turned out fab and I raised £80.44 to be exact (that’s profit – ALL is already in StreetInvest’s bank account)!

Please visit the StreetInvest website to find out more about what we do


I made lots of yummy treats for the bake sale! I will post all recipes separately.


I made some that are already on here like my good old carrot cake and oatmeal and raisin cookies.

I hope you enjoy the recipes to come from the cake sale and go check out StreetInvest!!!
