The Victoria Sponge Bake Month – June 2016

2016 marks the third annual Victoria Sponge Bake Month! In the last year of Victoria’s life she grew to love baking, the joy it brought her and the people she shared her treats with. With this June coinciding with the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, we could not think of a more fitting way to get the country into the spirit of summer, than a nationwide bake of the cake of her namesake- Victoria Sponge. The baking will raise vital funds for young women with cancer. Taking part is simple:

  • Hold a Tea Party inviting each of your friends that enjoy a slice of cake to make a £3 donation
  • Take a cake into work and ask for a donation for each piece shared with a colleague
  • Make Victoria’s Promise the appointed beneficiary at local village Tea Parties
  • Hold an Afternoon Tea Party on the 12th June to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday
  • Own a shop or cafe? Donate a £ per slice to Victoria’s Promise during Bake Week
  • Or simply bake a cake, share it with friends and each make a contribution

And together, we can bake a difference in the battle against cancer.
