The Big Bake 2021

Let's get ready to crumble...

The Big Bake is back, and we knead you! Butter up your nearest and dearest by taking part in The Big Bake, our annual excuse for bakers and fakers alike to spread the love and raise oodles of dough - all to help beat brain tumours.

I'm ready - sign me up!

We know times are challenging, but we won’t let lockdown stop us baking up a storm. There are tons of fun and simple ways to connect with loved ones online over cake. And this year, there’s an extra special ingredient: thanks to our scrumptious partner, Bakedin, you’ll enjoy not one, but two discount codes to use on their website when you sign up!

However you get involved, the dough you raise will help us fund vital research into brain tumours and help support all those affected.

How to take part

  1. Sign up and set a date for your bake - You’ll get a free fundraising guide with all the tips and inspiration you need. In the meantime, check out some of our favourite ideas below!
  2. Create your JustGiving fundraising page - Pages with a target raise 46% more, and did you know adding a photo can boost your total?
  3. Invite your guests and share your fundraising page - It won’t be long before the dough rolls in!

Unique virtual bake ideas

Here’s a sprinkling of suggestions to get you started - you’ll find more inspiration in your fundraising guide.

  • Hold a cake-making or cake-decorating class and charge budding bakers for entry.
  • Get competitive – host a technical challenge or a bake-off with prizes.
  • Hold an online bake sale with IOUs, delivering guests’ treats once it’s safe to do so.
  • Why not whip up a baking-themed quiz? You could charge each team a fee for entry.
  • Connect with friends and use your Bakedin discount codes to bake along together.
  • Fill your event with fun activities – hold a sweepstake or ask guests to guess the weight of the cake.

Ready, steady - bake! Thanks to our amazing partner, Bakedin, it’s super easy to get stuck into The Big Bake. What’s more, we’ll provide you with a double helping of Bakedin discount codes.

Discount codes

With your first discount code, sign up for a monthly subscription to Bakedin’s Bread Baking Club or Baking Club by 31 March 2021, and you’ll get your first baking kit for just £2.99, instead of £10.99 - giving you all the Big Bake inspiration you need to get your fundraising off to a flying start!

To add an extra cherry on the Bakewell, when you sign up to a monthly subscription to The Bread Baking Club or Baking Club by 31 March 2021, the lovely people at Bakedin will also make a donation of £5 to The Brain Tumour Charity. What’s not to love?

Remember - you can cancel your subscription at any time!

The Baking Club is a baking subscription box with a brand new recipe every month. Each month, Baking Club members receive a monthly baking box with step-by-step recipe card with all the dry ingredients perfectly weighed out plus a few handy extras too.

And if anything else tickles your taste buds, use Bakedin’s second discount code, giving you 15% off all the non-subscription goodies that catch your eye on the website.

Why not share the love and pass your discount code to friends and family? But to avoid disappointment, make sure you or your loved ones only use each code once - throughout January, February and March 2021. Remember to use ‘em - or lose ‘em! You won’t want to miss out on all of Bakedin’s delicious delights delivered direct to your door!
