Secret Bakes places announced and an extra event!

We were overwhelmed with applicants for our Secret Bakes event, but the following people managed to secure a place.

Wendy, Alison, Adele, Rachael Mc, Sarah, Cheryl, Pamela G, Rachel R, Sue, Wilma, Lou, Aileen, Catherine, Lynne and Lucy

Isla and Katherine are first on the waiting list.

You will be emailed before the event with final details. There will be a photographer at the event – Don Munro who will be taking pictures of the wonderful creations. And we don’t mean to add pressure to your secret bake, but The Herald’s cake critic Catherine Lawson will be joining us. Don’t worry, she’s making something herself.

For those of you who didn’t manage to get a place at the Secret Bakes event, there is another one a few days after with many more spaces. Although not run by us, it’s being organised by friends with all the monies raised going to our nominated charity – It’s Good 2 Give.

We will also be providing complementary tea and coffee. Glasses of refreshing Pimms will be on sale for £2 per glass.

Thanks so much in advance for all your help and I am sure it will be a fabulous afternoon…..hope you can support us.


One thought on “Secret Bakes places announced and an extra event!

  1. There’s something weird in the address for the MGA Academy – Google Maps seems to have it wrong. The address is: 207 Balgreen Road, Edinburgh, EH11 2RZ, United Kingdom which is not in Juniper Green – Chesser or Gorgie maybe? Just in case anyone gets lost en route…
