On today's show we're counting down to Children In Need.
X Factor Stacey Solomon is baking a difference for our appeal. I help
out at a local bake centre in Manchester. Hello, today's show is
all about Children In Need, and our Bake A Difference appeal. Over the
last few weeks we have been asking you to hold bake sales up and down
the country. Children In Need is happening November 18. If you're
watching there's still time to organise a bake sale. Drop us an e-
mail. Drop us an e-mail now we might mention you on the TV.
have been so impressed by our appeal over the weeks. Chocolate
Brownies, banana buns, gingerbread, and orange crunch biscuits.
Blueberry muffins. To name a few. We know loads of you have been busy.
We appreciate your hard work. We could only invite one group. In
they have no idea. We'll be turning our cameras as in the ones you're

Children In Need are funding a charity called the Butterfly Trust.
They provide Joy with a befriender and it takes her mind off her
illness. Your bake sales are funding all
kinds of projects like these helping children all over the UK
who're living with a life limiting illness.
Some illnesses don't always show on Still be painful. Arthritis is
something that usually makes us think of old people, but Molly
began feel pg stiff in her joints when she was just eight years old.
There are parts of my body that really hurt, they're my fingers, my
ankles, my toes, my wrists. Although writing and typing can be
painful, she's now able to be in touch with children with the same
condition. That's all thanks to an activity
weekend organised by the children's chronic arthritis association, a
charity funded by Children In Need. You two are good mates now aren't
you, you met through this event? Yes, we e-mail each other every
week to say how are you doing. I was going to have joint
injections, Molly had them before so she knew what it was like.
some children, their illness means having treatment in hospital to
help them get better again. Sapphire is 12 and was diagnosed
with cancer just under a year ago. She's had several courses of
chemotherapy, a treatment designed to kill cancer cells or stop them
dividing. Chemotherapy is designed to make you get better but you have
to get worse first don't you. Do You don't like getting sick and
don't feel like doing it sometimes. Eight-year-old Charlie has been
having treatment for cancer too. He was diagnosed with a large tumour.
It took nine hours to remove it. They do the chemotherapy that goes
in there, and tries to clear it all up. And if not they have to do an
operation. To make time on the ward better for children, Children In
Need are funding a charity to get creative on a ward. It gives the
children a chance to learn how to make a ring tune, or even learn how
to make a song! It's one of my most favourite things to do whether I'm
bored. If you decide to run a bake sale, the money you raise will go
towards lots of projects like these, that help children, like Luke, Joy,
Molly, Saphifre and Charlie. Hasn't he got the best smile in the world.
Never mind smiling, his boxing was better than Luke. Fastest
wheelchair in the West. We invited a group along to have a look from
the BBC - from the BBC in Salford Quays. To say thank you for a bake
sale. This is them arriving. What they don't know, we're actually
going to surprise them by inviting them on to Blue Peter live in the
show. They'll go into an office and watch Blue Peter on the screen, and
we'll spin the cameras on them?! don't know why we're doing it... It
will - it could go horribly wrong... There's plenty of time for you to
get involved and raise money for Children In Need. 18th November
that's the deadline. If you need help. Gary Lineker has shown you
how to make carrot cake, and Alesha has shown you biscuits. And Stacey
Solomon will show you how to make cup cakes. I'm Stacey Solomon and
today I'll show you how to make today I'll show you how to make
something really really easy. I'll be making cup cakes! There's so
many ways to create different styles. Today I'll show you three
different ways to decorate them using butter cream. It's so easy to
make, you just need butter, Caster sugar, two eggs, flour and milk.
All the measurements will be on the Blue Peter website. Once you have
stirred it for a couple of minutes, you should have something looking
like this. You spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases. This is my
favourite bit. Once you have filled all the cases, get an adult to help
you put it in the oven. While the cakes are in the oven it's the
perfect time to make the butter cream. All you need is icing sugar
and butter. Once you have creamed the butter, add the icing sugar bit
by bit. It will be very messy! I've decided to add colour. I'm going
for pink. You can add any colour or flavour. After 20 minutes your
cakes should look like this. Make sure you leave them time to cool.
I'll show you my three favourite decoration ideas. Get some of the
pink butter cream, put it into a piping bag, and make a lovely swirl
all around. Then, add a few spinkles, and a little Cher cherry
on top. A piece of cake. Second is one of the favourites -
get a nice lump of icing, put it on the top and smooth it around.
Doesn't have to be neat or perfect or anything. Cover the whole cake.
Here's the fun bit - whack it into sprinkles. That's my favourite one!
Lastly, find an adult helper to help you cut out a circle. Pull it
out. Fill the whole with a very generous A icing. The more the
merrier. And then cut the little piece you took out in half. And
there you have a butterfly cake. there you have a butterfly cake.
These are easy and simple to make. All the constructions are on the
Blue Peter website. Gook luck to you and hope you raise loads of
money! That's my kind of baking, when she got the bun and dunked
into the sprinkles. Whack it in the sprinkles, a technical term. I
don't like the baking, I like the decorating. I like the eating.
Loads you of have been holding bake sales. Isobel got in touch - a
Hallowe'en bake sale - six pink star muffins, and ten green mini
Muffins, and they'll like to thank their neighbours. And 11-year-old
Sophie held a back sale with Molly and Lucy near Oxford. They baked a
total of 95 cakes and biscuits, and managed to raise a total of �38.46.
The cakes were delicious. They like the eating! Six-year-old Katie held
a cake sale and raised �227. Look at that pile of cakes! Lots of
people joined in baking, and together they baked and sold 418
items. Her granddad made six loafs of bread! And Annie Jessica and
Rose had a wonderful time. They made �69 - �69. And had some left
over and gave it to the old people's home nearby. I helped some
children in Manchester. These children in Manchester are getting
ready to hold a bake sale by decorating Pudsey biscuits to sell.
I'm here to help them. They don't I'm here to help them. They don't
know that. Hello everyone. We have got all our biscuits decorated.

Pudsey is broken into lots of pieces. Still �1 for a box. You get
There you go. It's that easy to hold your own bake sale. If this

an argument. I'm going to eat it! an argument. I'm going to eat it!
We sold every last one. All those cakes in 20 minutes. Good fun.
Loved it. Jackie Katie and Tom told us they put up loads of posters,
and they made �81. And they recommend selling chocolate
brownies. Look for your name on the bottom of the screen. Somebody who
had their sale... They raised over �100. Thank you very much. After
seeing our appeal six-year-old Benedict baked 36 fairy cakes, and
sold them and raised money. Thank you so much everyone for getting
involved. We mentioned earlier about a special group from Stafford.
They got in touch and said they would bake 52. They're sat in our
production office. You're live on Blue Peter. Thank you so much. We
were nervous about how they would react. That's what we wanted.

of fun? Yeah. Are you shocked to be here. Yeah. You're shaking. You'll

any idea we would get you on to the set? No! Are you glad you game in

raised? Do you know? You can say a lot! It was �138. That's
incredible! Dave, come on in, mate. A round of applause for Dave. Can

and one of the parents was involved in getting them doing it. You made
cakes last week and did more yesterday. They have been doing the
fundraising, and getting stuck in. Sending them after church on a
Sunday, and the congregation has been involved. Barney and I say
it's fun, fun, you have a few days left to get involved. Would you
guys recommend holding a bake sale? Yeah! Everybody who has got
involved, you have made a massive difference, �58,395 is an
incredible number. To think we only started a few weeks ago. Do you
want to sing a song before you go? No! Thank you so much. Pudsey,
