KIDLINGTON bakery donated profits from the sale of over 100 macaroons to support the world’s largest Macmillan morning coffee
Cakey More was set up by Siobhan Tumetly for lockdown after her family persuaded her to start selling her ‘famous’ Italian macaroons for profit
This weekend, however, all of Ms Tumetly’s proceeds from her baked goods went to the cancer support charity.
More than 20 boxes of macarons have been sold to neighbors and the pair have raised an additional £ 600 by selling other baked goods
For the past eight years, Ms Tumetly’s neighbor Louisa Heywood has hosted events on their street as part of Macmillan’s Coffee MatineeHowever, this year the events had to be canceled due to covid restrictions
Ms Heywood approached the baker to see if she could help raise money for the charity
Ms Heywood said: “I thought people might be more comfortable buying from a local business in today’s climate, so it seemed like a good idea to ask Siobhan if she wanted to help out. do something different this year »
The new baker immediately ‘jumped at the chance’ and has since spent hours in her kitchen cooking
Ms Tumetly said: « I have seen with my own eyes the incredible work of nurses at Macmillan and cannot think of a better charity for my new business. »
The couple sold more than 20 boxes of macarons to their neighbors which were delivered on Sunday
They also raised an additional £ 600 and said it was’ a really successful morning! »
The owner of Cakey More added: « I started cooking during the lockdown, like everyone else, but got a little crazy
« A couple of friends and family told me I should go pro, so I did
« I started baking birthday cakes for people whose birthdays were over and of course macaroons
« We had planned this year to do it away from home, but the rule of six came into effect and we knew that could not go forward
« Louisa knew I had just started my business and knew I had a high health and safety rating so we ran a few messages around the neighborhood.
« It went haywire Friday, I have already prepared three lots and donated eighteen boxes in the neighborhood
« All the profits went to Macmillan and we made our deliveries on Sunday morning »
Ms Tumetly first started selling her macrons and cakes by mail, with shoppers contacting her through her Facebook page and Instagram
But since coronavirus restrictions were relaxed, the new baker has been able to host other events
She said: « I started going to the North Parade market in Jericho I would have been there this weekend, but I was too busy with the charity bake sale
“I will also be available to deliver macarons around Kidlington once a week and help bake cakes for small celebrations, which can be ordered on my Facebook or Instagram page.
« At the moment I still cook at home, but we are a registry company »
