It’s Easy! Making a load of cupcakes is the simplest thing in the world, but everyone loves them, particularly if they know their extra calorie intake is all in a good cause.

Charge £1 for every slice sold at work, or 50p for every cupcake! You can have your own one-off sale, or sell tasty treats during a big event, such as a school fete, coffee morning or charity night

Bake Off! Why not hold a pay-to-enter baking competition for your friends or colleagues? Pick a judge – perhaps a local dignitary or your boss – to vote on which is the best. You can set categories, eg ‘best decorated’ or ‘most tasty’!



Read what Helen did! Our fundraiser, Helen, has been Baking for Brake now for the past few years and has raised just under £2,500 for us. Helen says “I became aware of Brake after losing my brother to a road crash almost 10 years ago. I decided I wanted to help raise funds for Brake, so I began baking and asking for donations for cakes/quiches at work. The idea was successful and soon, along with homemade cakes I started buying snacks (chocolate bars, crisps and drinks etc) and asking for donations towards the charity. I have a poster next to the Snack Table which shows how much money has been raised. It's a worthwhile cause and for very little input there’s a great outcome for Brake.”

Not sure what to make? Here are two easy road safety themed recipes to follow:

Traffic-Light Biscuits
