Canberra bakers – we need you!

PANDSI Cake Off, an annual fundraiser for local charity PANDSI will take place on Sunday 6 May 2018 at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra.

The event is delivered by volunteers so every dollar raised goes directly to PANDSI, who support over 300 Canberra families a year experiencing perinatal depression and anxiety.

This is PANDSI Cake Off’s third year. In 2016 volunteers baked and created every cake from the Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Cookbook. 2017 was all about Canberra, Skywhale, Telstra Tower and Mooseheads were three of the 68 cakes made by volunteers.

PANDSI Cake Off 2018 is all about Australia, and our big things! The Big Pineapple, Big Marino and the Big Ugg Boots are three of the 54 Aussie Big Things that will be made out of cake for the 6 May event. All cakes are sold via live and silent auction at the event and bakers are asked to help fundraise as well.

The Big Pineapple

The cake which raises the most funds for PANDSI will feature on the cover of the PANDSI Cake Off Aussie Big Things 2019 calendar! The calendar will be filled with the other cakes which raise the most for PANDSI, but we’ll also dedicate a page for all of our amazing cakes. This is a great opportunity for local bakers to support a local charity, raise their profile and take part in a fun community event.

Keen to take part?

On Wednesday 14 March at 10am the PANDSI website will go live with the cakes available. View the PANDSI website here for additional information and get ready to #GetYourBakeOn
