“Think palmier, think lattice, think pin-wheel. But mainly, think massive horn.”
Summer diets were put on hold for a few hours on Friday June 26th in Belfast as a bakery bonanza took over at the Micro Focus office. Staff from sales, support and maintenance renewals brought in a selection of moreish home-made cakes, buns, biscuits and desserts with the sole aim of raising some much needed money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Host Connectivity Sales Manager Jamie Shilliday was the week’s Star Baker with two scrumptious sponges he whipped up from scratch without any assistance from his girlfriend. Both of his delectable creations were cleared within minutes!
There wasn’t a soggy bottom in sight (well… on the cake front…) as everyone donated generously to help others while stuffing their faces with delicious cupcakes and home baked delights.
“Where’s my custard? Oh no!”
My own batches of lemon, chocolate chip and almond biscuits went down a treat. Most of the office graciously decided that they prefer them a bit more well-done than normal.
The bake sale was a spectacular success and we are already making excuses to have another as part of our ongoing commitment to raise charity funds. Thanks to everyone who helped us raise a splendid £138 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Money that will go a long way to help improve the lives of people living with cancer in the UK.
“On this occasion style and substance may come into play again.”
