It's the local gala tomorrow and Eleanor's drama group is having a bun stall to raise some much needed funds. Each year, they stage a show over three or four nights at the Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds, however, the money raised from ticket sales alone doesn't come anywhere near to covering the costs so they need to do lots of fundraising to help.
I thought I'd better get my baking gear out, so Eleanor and I set to work. We've made fifty six buns.
Chocolate Cornflake Buns.
Chocolate Frosted Buns.
Mick's auntie has dropped off some baking she's done.
Chocolate Caramel Shortbread.
Fingers crossed that they have better weather for the gala than we've got today, and that the stall raises some much needed funds.
Oh my they all look totally delicious! Flighty xxReplyDelete
I hope they taste delicious too. I didn't try any before they were sent off but I haven't had any complaints before.Delete
Any 'bun'ting on the stall?ReplyDelete
Love from Mum
Ha ha, very clever. I don't know, I'm not sure if I can make the gala yet so I'm afraid I'm shirking my duties somewhat. At least I've sent some goodies to be sold.Delete
Ooh, I think I've put weight on just looking at all those photos! They all look delicious, I'm sure Eleanor will raise lots of money xxReplyDelete
I was very good and didn't even have one. I suppose I should have tested them really, but I'm sure they'll be fine.Delete
All of that looks delicious, Jo! You should be proud of yourself :) Fingers-crossed you sell all of them and make a tidy profit for the theatre group!ReplyDelete

It's not a very nice day today, but there's usually a good turnout whatever the weather so I hope they do well.Delete
They all look scrummy, but here in Oz we call them "cup cakes". Will have to ask K, what he "used" to call them, as he has been out here for well over 40 years now. Just watching an old Escape to the Country and they are visiting Hebden Bridge as I write this. Hope the gala goes well and love Mum's comment about bunting. Take care.ReplyDelete
They're called all different things here, buns, cupcakes, fairy cakes. I've never visited Hebden Bridge even though we can get a train direct from here. It's on my list of places to visit.Delete
They look lovely Jo, its been yonks since I have made small cakes, hope the sale went well!ReplyDelete
It's a while since I've made buns too, it made a nice change. The gala is this afternoon so I hope they raise lots of money on the stall.Delete
Those cakes all look scrummy, bet they will be gone in no time, hope the weather holds for you. Enjoy your day xcxReplyDelete
It's not very nice weather wise at the moment but it's supposed to stay dry this afternoon, I hope it does.Delete
I love cake but hardly ever make buns, I may have to whip up a batch now thy look so inviting.ReplyDelete
I don't often make buns either, yet they're so easy to whip up in no time. I think I may have to make a batch for us.Delete
Everything looks delicious!!!! I hope that it went well and that lots of funds were raised. xxReplyDelete
Eleanor's taken herself off to the gala so I'm sure she'll report back how it went. I hope it's been a roaring success.Delete
They do look scrummy! I think a butterfly cake with a nice pot of Earl Grey may be just what I need before making tea for my hungry bunch! Hope the gala raises enough for the group. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Butterfly buns are one of my favourites. It seems as though the stall did well, just waiting to hear how much they raised now.Delete
A very tasty contribution to the fund raising. I'd be buying the chocolate shortbread slices. Yummy.ReplyDelete
Mick loves chocolate caramel shortbread, it's a bit sickly for me. Give me a butterfly bun instead.Delete
They all look so delicious, Jo. I hope she sold them all.ReplyDelete
They did really well at the gala. The rain held off and plenty of people were parting with their money, so I'm sure they raised a good amount.Delete
Ooh Jo, they look delicious! I havent baked for a while but then again we are trying to cut back on the calories a bit!ReplyDelete
It's a while since I've baked too, and ages since I've baked buns, it's got me in the mood again now.Delete
Mmm, they look great and would go very nicely with a cuppa right now ;)ReplyDelete
I can't believe I didn't keep a couple back for myself, I never thought. I just fancy one now too.Delete
Hope you had good weather for the Gala and you raised lots of money for the Carriageworks Theatre show. I'm sure those yummy cakes were popular anyway!ReplyDelete
The weather brightened up yesterday afternoon, it was a bit cloudy in the morning so I'm glad that it didn't rain. I haven't heard how much they raised yet, but I'm sure they'll have done well.Delete
Hope all went well at the Gala and lots of funds raised. The buns looked fantastic and would go great with a nice cup of tea.
It seems to have gone well. The weather was fine and plenty of people turned up. I'm just waiting to hear how much they raised now.Delete
I hope it all went well, Jo. All of those goodies look fabulous! :o)ReplyDelete
It went very well. The stall raised £200 and the company which one of the volunteers works for is matching this amount, so the funds are raised by £400 in total. A good day's work.Delete
They look lovely Jo!ReplyDelete
Thank you. They sold well by all accounts.Delete
