QualitySolicitors firms across the country will today (31 October) take part in a national Halloween-themed bake off in aid of the children’s charity Barnardo’s.

All partner firms across the UK have been invited to participate in the Halloween Big Bake for Barnardo’s. Each firm will pitch its own star bakers’ menacing madeira cakes, possessed pastries and freakish fairy cakes against those from around the national QualitySolicitors network.

Gemma Bacon, Head of Brand at QualitySolicitors says:

“Our aim with these ghostly goings-on is to raise money for children’s charity Barnardo’s. Barnardo’s improves the lives of thousands of vulnerable children. By bringing their creepy creations to work, where customers and visitors may be able to taste-test their efforts, our colleagues will be raising the profile of this good cause. We’ve combined the best bits of Halloween and the Great British Bake off. After all, what could be more scary, more sinister, more spine chilling, than the dreaded soggy bottom?”

Taking a leaf out of Mary Berry’s book, the most bewitching baker will go through to a national final to win the title of national ‘QualitySolicitors Star Baker’. The winner with the spookiest sponge, the freakiest filo or the most menacing muffins will be announced as the ‘QualitySolicitors Star Baker’ on 12 November.

Dylan Carroll of Barnardo’s said:

“Our founder, Thomas Barnardo, pledged that no child should be turned away. We endeavour to continue our work with this belief. On behalf of Barnardo’s I want to reiterate our thanks to all at QualitySolicitors, staff and customers who will bake, eat and donate for creepy cupcakes and devilish desserts. Together I’m sure we will create a fun and successful day for an unrivalled good cause.” 

As QualitySolicitors prepare to ‘On your marks, get set, Bake!’, winners’ pictures, stories, recipes, comments and votes will all be shared on QualitySolicitors’ Big Bake website – which includes a link to the Barnardo’s donation page.
