EVENT – ‘The Cakestalker’ in aid of It’s Good 2 Give

Edinburgh Bakers

“The Cakestalker” – Charity Fundraising Event
Wednesday 19th February – 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Café Musa, The Mound

Join us for another cake filled evening to support the fantastic Itsgood2give along with Rachael McWilliams who has challenged herself to the ‘Mighty Deerstalker‘ event to raise funds.  Rachael will encounter 5k of mud filled trenches, scree slopes, rivers and off-road terrain. In keeping with the country lifestyle she will be wearing some sort of tweed or tartan.

You may use this tweed/tartan theme as your inspiration for your bake or maybe even just your attire on the evening.

We are also looking for a few bakers to pledge a savoury bake, we need something to balance that sugar rush.


The venue for this event will be Café Musa, situated on The Mound, with fabulous views over Princes Street:

Clay Pot Wind Chimes

Wind Chimes

These wind chimes add a whimsical touch to your garden or patio. This is an enjoyable project that could turn into an afternoon of family fun. Just buy a clay pot for each member of the family and allow them to decorate it to represent themselves. If you have more than four in your family, make two wind chimes.


  • 4 clay pots in graduated sizes
  • Jute
  • (4) 1-inch wooden beads

  4. Pull one end of it through a wooden bead and tie a knot.
  5. Tie a knot an inch or so…

Piping is not one of my greatest skills, but i do believe in challenging myself when ever given the opportunity. I had myself so stressed out (for months) as time crept closer to the due date of this cake. Cake decorating, as an expensive hobby, isn’t something you can just sit there and practice, unless you have an excess of time or money, or have someone who would want to buy your “lab rat” cakes. I had no idea how I was going to construct this cake until I was physically there, in my step mothers kitchen, cake filled and covered, piping bag in hand. “Where do I start?” I kept saying “I have to do this before that, but I have to do that before this!” A little bit overwhelming. Just stop and think. Pick something and get going. Always know what your next move is going to be.
