Australian Red Cross Big Cake Bake August 2012

Want to bake the world a better place? It’s something I try to do. That’s what the Australian Red Cross is asking this August. The Big Cake Bake is aiming to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross to help those in need locally and overseas. Just sign up, bake a cake or two and share them with your friends, family or co-workers. Your Big Cake Bake host kit will include a donation box so everyone who samples your delicious baked goods can give generously to the cause. The official date of the Big Cake Bake is August 27, 2012 however you can hold your event at anytime in August.

Go to the Big Cake Bake site to get more information. Register now to receive your host kit and get planning your event.

Here are some of my favourite cakes to help you get baking!

Can you help bake the world a better place? $150 will help give vulnerable young families around Australia basic support and skills so that they can provide their kids with the best start in life.

Wish List – Cookbooks

After our recent move I may have declared I’d never go shopping again because we have too much “stuff”. Yeah, I didn’t believe me either. I’d love any of these books, I’m putting them all on my Christmas list now.

1 Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream – This book looks beautiful, with amazing photographs and a recipe for carrot cake ice cream – yes please!

2 Cake Pops Holidays – Due out in October by the original cake pops queen Bakerella.

3 Cupcakes and Cashmere – This looks like a cute book by the hugely popular blogger Emily Schuman. Emily gave me tips on places to go in San Francisco and recently wore the most beautiful wedding dress. I’m sure there a few recipes in there, Emily is quite the baker.

4 Baked Elements – I adore the first two Baked books, I’m sure this one won’t disappoint when it’s released. If you like American baking get these books on your shelf yesterday.

5 Miette – Hubby and I visited Miette bakery in San Francisco last month and ate delicious cupcakes and chocolate cookies.

6 Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones – Ok, I want this one because love the cover so much. And hubby likes to make ice cream so perhaps we need it. And it’d look good on our coffee table. That we don’t have yet.
