Cookies for Movember


What is Movember? Where have you been? Every November, Movember is why you may see lots of men in the UK and all over the world, sprouting hair on their upper lip. It’s all in the name of charity and is to raise funds for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancers.



Now, as much as I would love to grow a moustache for the month, I cannot. I already have a full beard you see. And I wanted to show my support for this good cause in some way. And why not the Cakeyboi way I thought?

I looked online and got myself some nifty moustache cookie cutters and decided to make some cookies to sell and raise funds for the cause.



I used a recipe for chocolate cookies from All Recipes and whipped up a few batches. I took them into work and my hungry co-workers wanted to dive in, until I told them they would have to have their photograph taken (as well as pay, of course). But they were more than happy to oblige.

So, I have made a little collage of some of my colleagues displaying their support (and insanity in some cases) for Movember.

To find out more about how to get involved or to donate go to Movember.
