Yum yum, cake scrum

Long shot

Storm before the storm: great waves of sugar-hungry kids washed up against the cake stall but the rain held off.

“Is it always like this?” gasped one astounded parent, viewing the three-deep queues of children around the Delphinus & Columba cakesale table after school today.  Well, it did seem like a bumper one: it had been a long time since the last sale and the parents and teachers of both classes put on a stunning display of baked and iced plenty for the punters. The total take was £112.00, representing £56.00 per class – and 224 cakes sold… in half an hour. Thank you, hardworking volunteers!
