They raised a total of £254.
Greenock had a fantastic day as well, with a huge variety of cakes. They also held a ‘bake off’ style competition which was won by Laurissa Tonner, who created a chocolate Kinder Bueno cake that looked absolutely beautiful. Other entries included Kylie Townsend’s pistachio cakes and lamingtons, Fiona Smith’s two delicious cakes which were gingerbread and carrot cake, Karen Bisset’s yummy red velvet cake and finally Eileen’s Catterson’s Hummingbird Cake which tasted like pure heaven.
