Summer is almost behind us and what better way to break into Autumn than eating cake for charity! Join us for another cake filled evening to support the fantastic Its Good 2 Give. This time we will be hosting the event in the Aga Shop, where we will be treated to a baking demonstration and have plenty of opportunity to chat and enjoy cake while raising money for a great local charity


There are 25 places available for this event, which is smaller than our usual sell out events, so don’t delay in booking your place.

As this is a charity event, we would like to ask for lovely volunteers to pledge a cake for the evening. Please let us know at the earliest what type of cake you’d like to pledge (minimum size = 8 slices). We need 10 cakes to make this evening a success.

There will be two types of tickets available for the event, an eater and a baker/eater. Each ticket will entitle you to 3 slices of cake to eat (or takeaway) from our cake menu, plus tea or filter coffee.

Baker / Eater Ticket – £10 includes entry into our raffle
Eater Ticket –  £10

Every penny goes to It’s Good 2 Give and to help out families affected by cancer.


  • Opportunity to purchase cake – all remaining cake will be on sale near to the end of the evening. Why not buy some for your family, or treat your office colleagues the next morning? Bring a box with you to carry your cake purchases home…or in the unlikely event that you cannot eat all your three slices of cake!
  • Some great raffle prizes will be up for grabs on the evening!


Tickets are on sale now with ladies, gentlemen and well-behaved children welcome. Remember places are limited to 25. If the number of people requesting a place exceeds 25, a waiting list will be created.

CAKE PLEDGERS: For those who wish to pledge a cake. Email us now at – edinburghbakers (at) gmail (dot) com with the name of the cake you wish to pledge. We will then send you details on how to make payment for your ticket. Tickets must be paid for within 4 working days, otherwise we may not continue with your ticket request.

EATERS: Email us now at – edinburghbakers (at) gmail (dot) com with your full name and the number of tickets you would like. We will then send you details on how to make payment for your £10 ticket. Tickets must be paid for within 4 working days, otherwise we will let your space go.


The hashtag on twitter for this event will be #agacake

Its Good to Eat Cake!

Its Good to Eat Cake!


If you attend our event, it is your responsibility to ensure you read the label of the cake and ensure that you’re not allergic to any ingredients i.e. nuts etc. If in any doubt, please choose another cake. We have had no incidents of illness in the hundreds of cakes we’ve eaten so far.

It’s always good to eat cake, but even better when it’s for charity.

Last Thursday we held our latest charity event for Its Good 2 Give at the wonderful Camera Obscura and World of Illusions on the Royal Mile.  If you haven’t been to this fantastic attraction we urge you to go, we had a great time exploring all 6 floors.

We would like to give a huge thanks to Andrew and his team at Camera Obscura who gifted us the venue and also helped us on the evening.

Thank you to everyone who came along, we hope that you had a great evening and enjoyed all the wonderful cakes on offer (there were plenty). We are pleased to say we raised £1700 for It’s Good 2 Give, through ticket sales and the prize draw – so thank you!

Thanks also to everyone who helped organise the event, those who baked amazing cakes and donated raffle prizes. Thanks to Don Munro for photographing the evening, to Alana at Fredricks Coffee House for supplying the cups and Stuart and Ingrid at Bon Papillon who donated cakes.


Finally, we also made an appearance on The Fountainbridge Show on STV Edinburgh, our lovely Rachael was interviewed by Zara from STV. We hope to be able to load up a clip from that interview shortly, if you missed it. Thank you Rachael for being our spokeswoman.
