I'm going camping on Friday, and want to take enough cakes to feed 80 plus people a couple of times. Any suggestions for cake sthat will stay moist for severak days gratefully accepted. I was thinking banana loaf, lemon drizzle, tiffin, any other suggestions?
Mil always took Parkin to the holiday cottage on Scilly. Survived being bounced about in a ruck sack on helicopters and boats. It was yummy. Proper Yorkshire Parkin, my grand mother used to make it too.
yes, I've not made fruit cake I have ot admit because of the length of time it takes to bake, and the cost of ingredients.
the actual baking took me about 4 hours on and off last night, plus about 3 this morning, it is the washing up in between and waiting for the cakes ot cook that takes the time.
re quantities - I've made approx 60 tiffin squares, similar amount of flapjack and approx 100 biscuits - they took ages to spoon out on the trays! I think it should be enough!
I've double wrappe dthe loaf cakes in clingfilm then foil, then they are all in a BOden delivery box, was just the right size!
No I'm not feeding cubs (though would usually send a cake or 2 to scout camp as requested!). We are going to New Wine, a kind of Christian festival, and are hel;ping with the kids' work. The cakes are for all the leaders leading one of the kids work groups - and for our family and church friends that we will be camping with.
