O-Very Cake Bake

In case you didn’t know, March is ovarian cancer awareness month. With ovarian cancer being dubbed the silent killer, it’s essential that you’re body concious, make sure that you are aware of symptoms, and if you have any concerns make sure you get checked out. Piece of mind and early detection are critical.

To raise funds and awareness the super folks at NWCR (North West Cancer Research) are fronting a bake off, which is to be held at Leaf on Bold Street on 22nd March.

There are 8 categories: Victoria sponge, cupcakes, French macaron, scones, biscuits & cookies, cheesecake, occasion cake, and loaf cake. Entries are £5 and all monies go to NWCR. Judges are Cherry Healey and Masterchef: The Professional’s winner Claire Lara. Pop along, bake cake, help NWCR and eat cake, sounds like a winner of a day to me.

I was telephoned by a lovely lady named Alison asking if I’d like to take part in a bake off article to be featured in the Liverpool Echo. Having fought cervical cancer, and kicked its ass I was delighted to be involved in something that highlights gynaecological cancers. I was featured alongside Stephen Maddock from The Little Macaroon Shop, Nina Halliwell from The Albion BakeHouse and Ceri Newton from Gorge’us. You can veiw the article here. Why not have a bash at all the recipes yourselves.
