How to make your event run smoothly

1. Choose a date and venue

Decide on a date and time that suits you and choose where you want to hold it. Depending on the scale of your event you could hold it at work, home, the village hall or your children’s school.

2. Gather the troops

Whether it’s baking, buying, setting up or the clean up, many hands make light work so get your friends involved.

3. Shout about it

Now you need to get people along to your BakeTime event. Use the posters and invites in this pack to spread the word about your cake sale. Use Facebook and Twitter to remind people of the date. Tweet us @supportkings to share with your fellow King’s College Hospital supporters.

4. Get baking

You can’t have a cake sale without some tasty treats so grab your ingredients and start baking. Recipes for brownies or flapjacks are available for free online, are easy to bake and don't take long to make! 

5. Buy, sell and eat

Display your cakes in their full glory and watch them sell like hot cakes! Once you’re full to the brim and have swept up the last few crumbs, send in your donations to us using the form in this pack. Don’t forget to send us photos of your wonderful creations!

 

Add an extra sprinkle of excitement

If you want to raise even more money for King's, try one of our ideas below:

  • Bake off

Charge friends, family and colleagues to enter your baking competition and vote for your favourite

  • Tea party

Catch up with old friends and organise a tea party. Put on a spread of homemade cakes, a pot of tea, and fundraise over a natter.

  • Cake auction

Are you a baking expert? Make an extra special cake to auction off to the highest bidder.

  • Ready steady decorate

Sometimes putting the icing on the cakes is the best part, so why not hold a cake decorating evening and let your guests get creative?

  • Cake lottery

Mark one of your cakes with a secret gold star. Whoever picks the mystery cake wins a prize!
