Bake up a storm during Big Cake Bake this August and you can raise funds for Australian Red Cross and make a difference to those who need help the most.

It's a piece of cake to take part. On Monday 27 August, and also right across the month, anyone who wants to make a difference can become a Big Cake Bake host. Hosts will be cooking, sharing and enjoying delicious homemade cakes in their workplaces, schools, social groups and at home while raising money for a great cause.

Australian Red Cross Big Cake Bake ambassadors Chris Bath, Marion Grasby, Adrian Richardson and Kate Ritchie are also getting ready to bake the world a better place, too. Each celebrity has provided a recipe for Big Cake Bake, which is available online at

"Big Cake Bake is a good reason to look forward to August. There is enough time to practise all your favourite recipes (and some new ones, too) and be ready to get all your family and friends together, eat cake and raise funds for Red Cross. We all want to see change, so please join me in the kitchen this August and support Big Cake Bake, too," says Australian Red Cross Big Cake Bake ambassador Kate Ritchie.

The icing on the cake is that every dollar raised can make a big difference to those who are experiencing everyday difficulties. Raising $150 will help Red Cross give vulnerable young families around Australia vital support and skills so the parents can provide their children with the best start in life.

There is no minimum or maximum amount you must raise. Just bake your favourite recipes, host an event and have some fun - or support someone else's event by making a donation.
