Get baking with The Big Big Blue Bake Off

With the news that the Great British Bake Off is likely returning to our screens later this year we are encouraging you to get creative in the kitchen and start practising for the MPS Society Big Blue Bake Off fundraising campaign.

We know you can’t host a bake sale right now but there are other ways to raise. We’ve put our heads together and come up with some different ideas but we can’t wait to hear yours too!


Bake an awesome cake and get friends and family to bid for it online. It can be a silent auction or an online page but make sure you share some mouth watering pictures to get your bidders interested.


If you’ve got a recipe you’re brilliant at turn it into an online tutorial and get your friends, family and colleagues to bake along with you. Ask them to donate a set amount before you share the link.


Combine baking and exercise - challenge yourself to run off the calories of a cake you’ve baked and ask for donations in return. Make it a really big cake and ask for £1 per calorie!


Have an online bake off. Set an entry fee and challenge your chums to bake some amazing dishes. You’ll have to be your own judge or decide the winner based on the best looking creation then donate half the winnings.

Whatever you choose to do let us know and to get you started here’s a video from Sophie‘s girls who made some delicious rainbow cupcakes.

Visit our Big Blue Bake Off page to download resources to help your virtual bake off and get in touch to let us know what you’re planning.

We are the only registered charity providing professional support to individuals and families affected by MPS, Fabry or a related disease in the UK.
