Great Cake Day

I got to work early on the CRY Great Cake Day. I carefully opened two big cake tins, one full of coconut macaroons, each topped with a glace cherry and resting on a square of CRY rice paper, the other full of Deliciously Ella almond-and-sea-salt brownies. This was only my second week at this new job, so I was a bit apprehensive about how enthusiastic people would be, and whether my semi-vegan brownies would be a source of contention!

Once I’d arranged the collection box and some CRY information leaflets around the cake tins, I went back to my desk and sent round a group email, explaining what the cake in the kitchen was for and my experience of being diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.

Five minutes later, I realised I needn’t have worried about my brownies! I received so many wonderful supportive emails, thanking me for the cake and for raising awareness about the charity. By the time I went back to make a cup of tea mid-morning, all the cakes had gone!

I’m very grateful to my new colleagues for helping to raise £59.02 for Cardiac Risk in the Young. And now I know I’ll have to bake double quantities next year to keep the cake supply going till the afternoon!
