Every day in the UK, 32 women will die from breast cancer – that means 1,000 women will die from the disease every month; 12,000 every year. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK during their lifetimes.
Breakthrough Breast Cancer is the Uk's leading breast cancer charity dedicated to not only increasing awareness and improving early diagnosis but also developing life saving treatments.
Breakthrough Breast Cancer is recruiting bakers to raise money to fund their research by simply doing something we all love - baking. You can organise a Great Pink Bake Off at work, at school or just among friends any time during October which is Cancer Awareness Month.
For my very small part, I will donate £1 for every comment left on this post (up to £100). I would encourage everyone who leaves a comment to do the same - any donations are welcome and you can do so here.
I baked a very pink cake for occasion. It can be a very simple or very showy cake depending on the occasion. It keeps very well at room temperature and can be made in advance - what more can you ask for?
