Hello!
I have to supply cakes at my work very soon as it's my birthday and it's tradition to do so, but due to various time constraints and so on i don't have time to bake stuff myself so i'm gonna have to buy things- my only thought so far is jam doughnuts from the co-op. i refuse to shop at tesco though, so with this in mind, does anyone know what my options are? i'm not opposed to shopping in other supermarkets if i have to, however i only really have access to sainsbury's, asda or morrisons and i don't want to spend a fortune either. help please!

Rhubard or cherry pie from Co-op, if that counts. Also the custard doughnuts from the Co-op!

Mrs Crimbles Stem Ginger Cake, Dutch Apple Cake and Dutch Fruit Loaf. They are all loaf shaped, not round and are a little 'healthy' tasting, but I like the stem ginger cake. Can't remember how widely available they are. Also most other Mrs Crimble stuff is not vegan.

There are those Lazy Day things- they do a chocolate orange slice which is a bit cake like, and delicious, but is very expensive! They do have at least three Lazy Day products in my big Sainsburys.

You could bring biscuits as well to make the selection look better- bourbon creams or whatever.

Eurgh, can't stand Mrs Crimbles cakes. They always taste stale. Don't get those!
I'd second the notion of custard or jam doughnuts from co-op - they always go down well! Either that, or ask someone like 8th Day to bake one for you?

i can just about tolerate the mrs crimbles ones every so often, so i don't think they'd go down well with my (mostly omni with one or two veggie) work colleagues... i'm not gonna go buy mad expensive stuff so i reckon if anything, they're just gonna get loads of co-op doughnuts (2 packs for a quid is fine!)
i just wasn't sure whether there was anything else obvious that i didn't know about.
sadly i don't have time to get 8th day to bake anything, nor do i want to pay them the 20-odd quid i've heard they charge for a full cake!

nah, it's fine. i wouldn't expect you to make cakes for my work colleagues! george brought loads in today and about half were uneaten so they can just have those along with a couple of bags of doughnuts from me...

£20 for a cake? That's crazy talk! Have a brilliant birthday, by the way- what a shame you're at work for it!




I really want some doughnuts now.
