We had a break after finishing half part of the cakes, multinational dishes from Iran and Pakistan were in the table along with e5 delicious soup and toasties.

The second part we made the financiers with berries and finished the day by boxing and labelling all the cakes boxes for our amazing supporters to be delivered.

All ready for delivery
