Ness Neighbours, a group of local volunteers, are aiming to have coffee mornings on the first Tuesday of every month. £2.50 for cake and unlimited tea and coffee.
Our next event is planned for Tuesday 3rd October 2017 when we will be hosting the event in aid of The World's Biggest Coffee Morning for McMillan Cancer Support. We will be asking for a minimum donation of £2.50 for unlimited tea or coffee and cake. This event will start at 10am and finish at 12 noon. We are also be inviting any budding bakers to enter our 'Autumn Themed Cake Competition'. The cake needs to be 'healthy' (containing a vegetable). It is £2 per entry and will be judged by Jennifer of Jennifer's Cakes on the day.
1. Autumn Themed Cake
This can be any size, shape or flavour, but should be decorated and should have an 'Autumn' theme.
Think of warm autumn flavours - toffee apple, ginger parkin/pears/plums, cinamon etc - or autumn leaf colours. It should look fantastic and taste superb!
2. Healthy Cake
This should be based on a fruit or vegetable (e.g., banana, carrot, courgette, beetroot, apple, parsnip) and doesn't need to be iced. The judge will look for great flavour and texture.
It costs £2 to enter a cake in THE GREAT MACMILLAN NESS CAKE OFF and there will be rosettes for first, second and third place in each category.
Jennifer of Jennifer O'Neill's Cakes has kindly agreed to judge the cakes and we're hoping to have a masterclass from Jennifer at one of our future coffee mornings.
