Top tips for having a Bake for Bliss sale

Depending on where you are in the UK, there will different ways you can raise some dough for Bliss this year. Make sure that you are aware of the guidelines to be followed in your local area.

Here are some different ways of doing your Bake for Bliss fundraiser if you can't have a traditional bake sale event indoors:

  • Deliver cakes to your friends' doorsteps.
  • Have an outdoor bake sale in your garden (if you have one) with time slots for friends or family.
  • Host a virtual coffee and cake by video call.
  • Teach your friends how to bake via Facebook or Instagram live.
  • Follow this step by step guide on how you can livestream a video to your JustGiving page.

Our bakers often share their top tips for hosting a great Bake for Bliss sale. These are our favourites:

  • Ask your work place for a contribution - mine were very generous
  • Ask for help. So many people baked I didn't need to bake anything myself
  • Have a variety of cakes, including dairy-free and gluten-free options
  • Take wrap and packaging for cakes
  • You can never have enough chocolate
  • Local businesses may donate cakes
  • Host a competition - a raffle, guess the number of sweets in a jar etc
