LETTER: Be a baking star

Readers, it’s time to dig out your pinny and dust off your rolling pin.

Bowel Cancer UK’s fundraiser Be a Star, Bake a Cake is back for a second year.

Join me in supporting this baking campaign to raise awareness and funds to help stop bowel cancer. More than 44 people die from bowel cancer every day in the UK, however that shouldn’t be the case. It’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.

Whether you’re a whiz in the kitchen or if baking sends you into a tiz, the campaign has a recipe or an idea for you.

Test your piping skills with my lemon meringue cupcakes, or if you’re after indulgence, Tom Aikens chocolate cake will satisfy your sweet tooth.

There’s a host of inspiration from other celebrity chefs on Bowel Cancer UK’s website.

It’s easy and everyone can get involved whether you love to bake, get creative in the kitchen or prefer to buy something delicious from your local supermarket.

Hold a cake stall, coffee morning or afternoon tea and invite your friends, family and colleagues to sample the delicious treats.

Your bake will make a real difference – sign-up here: bowelcanceruk.org.uk/be-a-star,-bake-a-cake
