Sticky Ginger Cake
The Great York Cake Off had over 40 entries this year, and the standard was so high we had to choose 4 winners!
The overall winning cake is now available to purchase in outlets across campus, with 25p of each sale being donated to the Mentally Fit York fund.
Thank you to everyone who entered and baked some incredible cakes, cupcakes and traybakes. The judges had a very hard time choosing the winners but enjoyed every second of the tasting! After the judging was completed, the cakes were displayed for staff and students to come try and make donations. During this we managed to raise an incredible £142.40! This is three times more than last year.
"In the last 14 years mental ill-health has risen by around 50%. These statistics need to change." Mentally Fit York are raising funds for two areas they hope will help prevent mental ill-health, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships and Mental Health First Aid courses.
Once the winning cake has been decided, our bakery team will work with the winner to recreate their recipe and this will be available to purchase across campus. 25p from each sale will be donated directly to Mentally Fit York. Our target is to beat our previous amount raised, which was £324.82.
