Our October Meeting - Baking Star Suzy Pelta

This month we're back into the swing of things and for our October meeting we have a very exciting speaker. Suzy Pelta, TV competition winner, will be talking cakes, baking and how to turn it into a successful business.

Date: Wednesday 9th October
Time: 8.00pm-10.00pm
Venue: Finchley Golf Club, Frith Lane, London NW7 1PU
Members: Free
Visitors: £5.00

We are lucky enough to have baker Suzy Pelta coming to speak to us.  Last year, Suzy won the ITV  Cake Club Competition on the ‘Lorraine’ Show.  Her winning cake was a rather delicious sounding original recipe of a chocolate and banana cake with peanut butter frosting!

Since winning, Suzy has started her own cake based business and now has a range of 'Bake with Suzy' tins.  Her baking kits come in stylish retro tins or 'Keep Calm and Carry on' baking tubes.  Some of you may have seen her interviewed in this month’s 'Making Cakes and Bakes' magazine.

On Wednesday 9th she’ll be talking to us about what it’s like winning a TV baking show as well as how she’s started her own successful cake based business.  She’ll also be bringing along some of her kits to buy (at a special discount).  Some of her retro tins can be seen here:

We will also see the return of our monthly meeting raffle which had taken an extended summer break!

Cake Stall: 

On the subject of cake baking, we have an opportunity to have a pop-up stand in North Finchley on Saturday 26 October to sell cakes and raise money for our WI.  

This all part of the regeneration of the high street in North Finchley. More will be revealed on Wednesday!

We need volunteers to bake cakes but also to work on the stall.  We’ll be covered so even if the weather is against us, it should be fun!  Even if you can only spare an hour on Saturday, we’d be very grateful. This is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of our WI and raise some money for us! Please let us know by email or on Wednesday if you can bake some goodies and if you can help on the stand.

Frost Fair

We need to start our leaflet drop to raise awareness of our annual Frost Fair which is just 6 weeks away!  Please have a think about any local shops you could go into and any roads you would be willing to deliver leaflets too. 

Once again we will be running our cake stall so we will be looking for volunteers and bakers for that too!

On Wednesday please let us know which roads/schools/businesses you can leaflet. 

A big WI thank you in advance for helping to bake cakes and leafleting.

Look who has been talking about us!

If you live in East Finchley and get the Archer you will have seen the article "WI isn't all ja
