Guy Salmon Jaguar Maidstone Bakes Then Eats Cake For Comic Relief

Guy Salmon Jaguar Maidstone and its intrepid bakers created a magnificent selection of treats, causing sheer delight and wonder to all. To name but a few, a scrumptious coffee and walnut Cake, a "moist" banana cake, a three tier fresh cream Victoria sandwich, some delicious lemon cupcakes, a decadent chocolate iced sponge cake with mini egg garnish, a marvelous selection of double chocolate and walnut brownies, some fruity raspberry blows and of course the obligatory chocky rice crispy cakes!

Our fundraising activities didn't reach the heights of a bake off alone, we also took to wearing a red item of clothing and there was also the chance to win a coveted hour early finish time should the correct amount of balloons stuffed into one of our showroom F-Types be guessed, which was promptly won by Babs with the correct guess of 69.

The coveted prize for best in show went to a certain Deborah Hacker, for both her fine Coffee and Walnut cake and the "moist" banana cake, both sold out.

I'm sure we can all agree, they were divine.
I don't think ive met anybody who doesn't look forward to Friday, but when there's a buffet table full of cake involved, the day seemed to pass in the blink of an eye. The collection tin was ringing with the plinks and plonks of change all day, after all, who doesn't like cake?
We raised £53.62, a great achievement on all parts. Our colleges over the road at Land Rover also joined in the fundraising and together we generated £202.34. That is £202.34 that will go on to help people who were born without the chance to live a different life, give people a voice so they can speak out about domestic violence, and help provide companionship to those who helped us become what we are today.

All it took was some cake.
And our reward?
