Charity bake off - what to bake?

I'm entering a charity Bake Off at work and can't decide what to bake. There aren't any categories, so it could be anything which is baked. There is only 1 round (of 4) where 2 winners are chosen before going forward to a final with 8 entries.

The judging will be done first thing in the morning and the winner will be the one which raises most money (people have to pay to taste them).

Any ideas? I was initially thinking raspberry and blueberry danish pastries, but now wonder if that would be showy enough.

Lemon layer cake -everyone loves lemon cake and this one is delicious and looks beautiful.

Or a Kitkat chocolate cake - looks impressive, tastes delicious and not that difficult!

Or raspberry and blueberry lime drizzle cake - simple but lovely!

Wow, these all look gorgeous!

I'm going to make the Danish pastries anyway as I've already done the dough, but I'm thinking the KitKat cake might be a winner. It's difficult as they are going to be cut up before anyone gets to see them, so the overall look will be lost. That's why I was thinking of something individual which they won't need to hack to pieces.

Decisions, decisions...

I'd definitely do something that comes as individual portions. A cake wouldn't be nearly as inviting after you've started to cut into it.

Rocky road cupcakes. Easy to make, but sold like hot cakes at a sale we did recently because they look great.
