Cake Stall

We are holding a cake stall at the Potato Fair and would love some help from our school community by baking some yummy treats to be sold. Cake stall donation packs (plate, label, bag, tie and drop off instructions) are getting ready to be sent home with your child this week.

Please remember to use the label enclosed to write the name of the product and list the ingredients – anything without an ingredient label unfortunately cannot be sold.

Please note we do not have access to a fridge to keep things cold, therefore please avoid using fresh cream or anything which can spoil without refrigeration.

Baked goods MUST be dropped off on the day of the Potato Fair (Friday the 22nd of March) in the Haven from 8:30-9:15am (opposite the canteen) or at the cake stall from 2:30pm onwards near the Prep Building and get your plate recorded by a Parents and Friends Volunteer.

If your child has misplaced their donation pack or you wish to bake up some extra delicious goodies for our Cake Stall, there are extra plates available in the office.

Thank you for your ongoing support. See you at Potato Fair!
