Olympic Farewell with a celebration Orange Cake
Olympic Orange Celebration Cake
From the start of the London 2012 Olympics with Bradley Wiggins ringing the bell for the magnificent Opening Ceremony to the fabulous cacophony of music and dancing at the Closing Ceremony, we’ve witnessed everything from sheer determination, dedication and most of all fun!
My Gamesmaker workplace
And I’ve got many of my own memorable moments working as one of the 70,000 volunteer Gamesmakers in the Aquatics Centre. It was a real privilege to be part of this wonderful experience and work with a team of brilliant people to ‘make it happen’.
Made short work of the cake
As a thank you for our final shift, I created an Olympic Celebration Cake. It was based on Grandma’s wonderful Orange Cake and I decorated it with Orange butter cream filling. Made with real oranges so you can't beat the healthy kick to it. It certainly gave us a boost to complete our final shift.
We made it happen
Here’s a toast to the Olympic legacy! Let the spirit live on to inspire a new generation! Guess what we are doing .............. the swimmers needn’t worry about any competition from us in the next Olympics!
