Cath Webb plans to put her culinary skills to the test by cooking up a storm over the 12 months and giving each cake away to someone needy- simply to put a smile on their face.
The 46-year-old was reportedly inspired to start the baking adventure after she made a cake for a friend who had been diagnosed with cancer, and saw the overwhelming reaction.
Ever since, she has put the power of doing good deeds to force and made an array of Victoria cakes with a variety of jam fillings for a plethora of local people including her own family, hospital staff and the homeless.
Despite the time-consuming challenge of washing up, cooking and cooling, the mother-of-three has recorded a diary of every single entry. But the domestic goddess admits that her husband was sceptical at first, and was moaning how much it would cost in ingredients.
She is due to complete the challenge on her birthday on 6th April in which she would have baked 366 cakes.
And the total amount of recipes used included;
- 1098 eggs
- 160lb of flour
- 292 packs of butter
- 160lb of sugar
- 183 pots of jam
- 74 bottles of vanilla essence
- 12 pints of milk
- Two packets of icing/ vanilla bean sugar
Let’s hope the woman protected her clothing from all that baking with Ulster weavers.com delightful ranges of aprons!
We have a cute homeware range called Victoria which is one of Ulster Weavers designs and it would be perfect to cook Victoria sponge cakes in. The collection includes matching co-ordinates of oven glove, apron, pot mitt, gauntlet, cake tins, tea and kitchen cosies and more.
And after all that hard work, we think Mrs Webb definitely deserves her hubby to put the kettle on and give her a nice cup of tea in one of our gorgeous Ulster weavers china mugs!
