Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is a great opportunity for the Cancer Council to raise money for cancer research, prevention, education and support services. My workplace got involved last week and we were encouraged to not only contribute a plate of morning tea, but a competition was initiated with prizes for the best team and individual baking efforts.
This threw my team into lengthy discussion. We wanted to win, but what would we make? I convinced my team to make a Tim Tam cake, riding on the success of my Mother’s Day dessert. So in true team-work spirit, the tasks were split into manageable steps – my manager baked the cake, I made the icing, and my other workmate assembled it all together beautifully.
I wasn’t really involved in the cooking process for the Tim Tam cake, so in the name of cancer research I decided to also make a short crust pastry tart, topped with fresh strawberries and oozed crème anglaise.
