How to run a great Cake Break

The recipe for a brilliant Cake Break…

Cake Break is a great excuse to get together for a catch up with friends, family and colleagues. Here are a few tips to help you have a great Cake Break and raise loads of dough to help stop MS.

After you’ve signed up, we will send you a free fundraising pack (plus you can download extra materials you need).

How to

Step 1 – Cake Stands at the ready!

Think about the logistics – for example, will you take your Cake Break at home, work, school or a local venue?

Step 2 – Add a tier…

Spread the word! Get those invites out or set up a Facebook event and invite your guests.

Don’t forget to put posters up too.

Step 3 – Bake it or fake it!

It doesn’t all have to be homemade to make it a great Cake Break.

Step 4 – Build up your showstopper

You can add fun for your guests and raise more with some little extras. How about a cake quiz or a bake off competition?? We’ve got some downloads that will help too! Put your donation box somewhere prominent and ask people to Gift Aid their donations.

Step 5 – The icing on your Cake Break

Hang up your apron, thank you guests for their support and let them know how much you’ve raised! We’d love to see pictures of your Cake Break, and don’t forget to send your fundraising in too!

Gift Aid –  Please note, Gift Aid can only be applied to donations only. Gift Aid should not be applied to money from sweepstakes or raffles, sales of cakes or for entry into your cake break.
