Bake the World Great
There is a very significant milestone coming up, and that is the Australian Red Cross's 100th birthday in August.

A special event is taking place to mark the occasion, a nationwide BigCakeBake. People and businesses are encouraged to bake a cake and raise funds for the Red Cross. Bake your favourite cake, slice, pie, cupcake, cookie or dessert to support a good cause. Events can include a morning or afternoon tea, cake sale or baking competition – the opportunities are endless. The official event date is Monday, 25th August 2014, however, to make sure nobody misses out, events can be held any time, anywhere throughout August.
