Let there be cake!

The Cake Committee is back to organise yet another Cakefest to bring even more smiles to tired agents after battling hard for the control of a city.

We’ve made plans for another awesome spread of goodies, but once again, we would like to call upon your help!

1. Help with the crowdfunding.  Please donate here: https://irfn.org/index.php?a=fund&op=53 as some of us are paying out of our own pocket for all these treats that we’re giving away freely to those who are attending the Anomaly.

2. Make some cakes/brownies/cupcakes and bring it along!  Please let us know if you can cater for Diabetics, Coeliacs or Vegans, as that would be greatly appreciated and means more can enjoy the treats!

If you’re looking for any ideas, have a look at the Resistance Bakery Community:https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/114727697619397462003

We have new cupcake pin badges to give away to those who help us with the cake, so:
•    If you contribute to the crowdfunding
•    Bring a contribution on the day
Then you qualify for an Edinburgh Abaddon Painted Cupcake Badge!

If you have any queries, please comment below or contact myself via hangouts.
Thank you very much!
