Braw an hertie cakes frae Main Street!

29th February 2012


Ayrshire Housing’s team has risen to the heat of a highly competitive lunch-time bake-off.  Event organiser Caroline Donald said “I’m stunned at how seriously my colleagues have taken this! It’s also raised a very welcome £80 for the British Heart Foundation”. Hence the “red” theme for all the entrants – from red onions to strawberries!

The ten entries – nine sweet and one savoury – were tested blind by an unbiased judging panel selected from our maintenance team – Carol and Murray.

The unanimous winner was Michelle Reid with her splendidly generous vanilla sponge cake.

The event is one of a series of regular culinary events in Ayrshire Housing’s offices. To date, these have included healthy breakfasts and lunches as part of our participation in the “Healthy Working Lives” initiative as well as for charity. Further events are scheduled over the next couple of months in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care and Cats Protection.
