Updates at Thomas the Baker: Halloween, Fundraising & Facebook
Phew, we just keep getting busier and busier over here at Thomas the Baker! Well, it’s to be expected in the run up to Halloween and Christmas – did you know that by the time you’re just starting to think about Christmas around now, we’ve already got your Christmas puddings and cakes in production?

The four ghoulish designs are a mummified monster, spooky skull, petrifying pumpkin and a Munster.

In other news, we like to do our bit for charities, both local and nationwide. So last week, the team at Bronco decided to take part in Wear It Pink day, a day in which, you guessed it, the nation was asked to dress in pink in order to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. We did our part by donating a few yummy treats as well as a beautifully pink themed hamper for a raffle to drum up the funds. With the help of our Bat Biscuits, Ghostly Cupcakes, Ginger Snap Biscuits, Yorkshire Brack and Lemon Drizzle Cake, we managed to help Team Bronco push the total funds up for Breast Cancer Now to….(drum roll, please)….
