Wexford stores join the Great Irish Bake for Temple Street

Published 14/04/2015 | 00:00

THe people of Wexford are being encouraged to support the Great Irish Bake in their local Tesco store in New Ross and Wexford town on Friday, April 17, and help raise much needed dough for Temple Street Children's Hospital.

It has never been easier to master the art of baking with a flurry of glossy cookery shows, books and online recipes available at the click of a button, and yet it seems that a good old baking mix is still a firm favourite in Irish kitchens across the country.

According to Tesco Ireland's analysis of its cake mix sales over the last ten weeks, Devil's Food, a rich chocolate layer cake takes the top spot as the nation's favourite, followed closely by Red Velvet in second and Classic Vanilla in third place. Chocolate cake comes out as the culinary challenge most tackled by home bakers with different variations making up four of the 10 most popular cake mixes.

Tesco is now calling on customers across Wexford to put these skills to good use and raise some dough for Temple Street by holding their own bake sale in work or school. Alternatively, Tesco stores in New Ross and Wexford Town will be hosting bake sales in aid of the Temple Street Great Irish Bake on Friday, April 17, between noon and 6 p.m.

The Great Irish Bake, supported by Tesco, aims to raise funds as Temple Street embarks on one of its most ambitious projects yet - the construction of a new neurology and renal outpatients unit.
