Lady Ga Ga's doing it. N-Dubz are doing it.
Gary Barlow's doing it. And now you can do it too. What are we talking
about? Find out on today's Hello! Today we've got all the
details about this year's Blue Peter appeal. Some of the biggest
stars in the world are queuing up to support our chosen charity and
now you can join them. This year the Blue Peter appeal is
supporting Children In Need! It's a real chance for you to help
change children's lives. We're so excited to be a part of it and hope
you are too. Now there's much more to the Children in Need charity
Children In Need is about raising money for children around the world.
Children In Need give the money to hundreds of charities all over the
country. Since it began a staggering �600 million has been
raised by the public and given to good causes.
He each year, fundraising gears up to a glitzy event in November were
the BBC is taken over by Pudsey Bear and countless celebrities.
Even BBC News readers attempt to get people at home to dig deep and
give generously for good causes. Last year, Helen got stuck in. Not
a bad! Each year, Children In Need money
goes to help thousands of children like these. It is not just
celebrities who get stuck in with fundraising. People up and down the
country raise money in all sorts of ways. And that is where you come in.
But this year's Blue Peter appeal, we want you to raise money for
Children In Need. We want you to help raise more money than it ever!
You really will make a difference. But how are you going to raise
money Blue Peter style? Well thanks to all the post and e-mails you
send us we know you all love baking, so for this year's Blue Peter
appeal we want you to "Bake a Difference".
That is the name of this year's appeal.
Up and down the country we need thousands of you to hold bake sales
to raise money. If enough of you do it, we could raise a whole heap of
cash that will really make a difference to children with
illnesses who will be helped by Children in Need.
Anyone can hold a bake sale and to prove just how easy it is, we've
prepared one, and if we can do it anyone can! It couldn't be easier
to get involved. All you need to do is get baking with your mates or
your family and then sell what you make to some other friends or even
to the whole of your school, scout group or youth club? You could hold
your sale in your living room or maybe take over your school or your
local church hall and make hundreds of things. Every penny you raise
will help children who really need it and you'll be having fun too!
am more concerned that you have a pork pie. It does not just have to
be cakes, it can be pork pies. I am rubbish at icing. Make something
work selling because this is about raising money for Children In Need.
I and 10, I live with my mum, my dad and my dog. I like American
football and I liked doing 360 turns in my wheelchair. Luke is
like any of a ten-year-old, but unlike other children his age he
lives with an illness that affects his life. At 18 months old, he was
diagnosed with a severe muscle weakness. It means the link between
his brain and muscles is breaking down, affecting his ability to move.
His muscles are used less and less, so they keep getting weaker.
I have come to pay him a visit to find out more about him, what life
is like living with this illness and what Children In Need are doing
to help. I had a bedroom like this when I
was younger, I had a football duvet, but I didn't have one of these.
What is that? It is a hoist. How do you use it? My mum, she puts me in
it and then I pressed the button and it takes me up. It is a way of
lifting you out of bed and into the bathroom? How is a different
compared to your friends? I take more time because I have to get in
my wheelchair. It is easy for them. Sometimes I have to be fed through
my tube. When I first got it, my mum came up with the name, Terry.
Why do you have Terry in your tummy? I lost quite a lot of weight
and because I cannot gain it, I had to have it put in my tummy. So it
is a way of getting the vitamins and minerals you need into your
tummy? Everyday activities are difficult for him because of his
illness so he is not always able to have the independence he wants. Do
you think people know what it is like, do they have a clue what you
go through? Probably not, they just think it is fun being in a fast
squealed share. Is it hard for them to understand? They think it is
cool. Sometimes they go up to the hill, so I am here on my own and
they have gone up the hill and I am on my own, which is annoying.
good news is, Children In Need are doing something to help by
supporting a hospice called acorns. It allows him to spend time with
other children like him. I like going to Acorn's because I like
seeing my friends and the big gardens. He can take part in
activities, have fun with his friends or just relax. When he is
there, he is care for by a nurse, giving his mum a chance to have a
rest. What is your favourite thing? I don't have my mum telling me what
to do! Acorns gives him the independence he wants, and there is
a specially built racetrack for him and his mates. I like this the best
because I get to race my mates and it is bigger than my garden.
they get tired of racing there is plenty of them to do inside. This
is your very own games room, can you play any of those? Yes.
wicked is that? This is one-game you have not played, and that is
the last one to the living room is a rotten eggs. When he comes here,
he gets to relax. It gives him more independence but he gets the chance
to meet other children who live with an illness like he does.
We want you to get baking and Ron Baker sales because the money
raised will go towards projects like this that to help support
these children. Get baking, you can make a difference.
We will be telling you how you can help these children. Now you don't
need to be an expert to have a go at baking! To prove it, we asked
some of your favourite CBBC stars to go head-to-head in one of our
fiercest competitions to date - The London, home to some of the best
chefs and restaurants in the world. The perfect location. At this
cookery Academy, two teams will battle it off in the kitchen. In
the red team, Danny and Angeline. They have the finest acting skills
on the set, but can they bake something out of this world?
In the Blue Team, Naomi Wilkinson and Ed Peter Reid. They are known
for touring Britain, but can they go the distance -- distance? They
have to impress this man, a professional chef, tough judge of
master chef. The prize? The golden rolling pin. For the losers, they
kitchen-sink full of washing up. Who will break their way to
victory? Welcome to the Blue Peter a Goth. Your baking skills will be
put to the test. By the end of today, only one team will be going
away with the trophy. It is only the goal Link -- golden rolling pin.
You have to impress John, who will be judge in use. Three things we
will be looking for - taste, presentation and originality. You
would choose what you do and you will have 60 minutes to do it. You
can bake as many as you like. We will give you a recipe folder for
inspiration, take what is in there and make it your own. There are
some good ones in here. Can you cook? A have never bake anything in
my entire life. I think we should go for a cake. That does look good.
Courgette cake. Tomato soup cake. My mum made it once. Cinnamon,
nutmeg. What if we were to create John and Barney in gingerbread men?
Let's do it. Gingerbread men inside. So, Edward and Naomi are hoping to
win originality on their tomato soup cake. The others have gone for
sponged and gingerbread men. They have just �20 to spend on
ingredients. That is more than enough. Wicked. Shall we go for the
raspberry conserve? Whilst the red team are splashing the cash, the
blue team are in search of the cheapest ingredients. Will it taste
OK if it is cheap? I think we will The teams have all the ingredients
they need. Can they turn them into something edible. You have 16mips,
best of luck. Off you go. The red team are off to a controlled start.
The blue team have a slightly more creative approach. Are you serious?
Come on, Ed, focus, all good cakes start with a good cake mix.
smells gorgeous. It smells horrid. Wyles the Blue team concentrate on
getting their cake into the oven the other couple have a different
problem. Is there enough for one? have to do two. I'm sorry. Follow
the recipe! In the Blue team, Ed makes a start on the icing. What
have you done? Too much water will leave you with a sticky mess.
I'm not sure. OK. In the Red team there are problems with the
Gingerbread dough. The heads keep falling off. A Gingerbread massacre
over here. We can always make more, can't we? Yeah. NO! It's good.
have had half an hour. That's 30 minutes. You have the exact same
amount of time left. Even those though their icing isn't perfect,
the blue team are hoping their cake will be cooked properly. It's a
moist cake. Cut it into a square. Leave it like that. It won't be a
house. Oh, no! Everybody, you have They are not red. That is. It your

of us expected, but it's fine. baked a recipe worthy of the Golden
Rolling Pin, is it the Red team or Did they actually put toe Matt owe

will find out how it tasted later. It's not just cakes you can make
anything you like, pizzas, pies and sausage rolls. Chop, chop, you
haven't iced that pork pie. I can't get it out. Use muscle. Whatever
you bake, you have to sell. This is all about raising cash. Britain we

sale we have enlisted... Blue Peter's business guru, Saira Khan.

sale is like a business. It's all about making money. Whether you do
it alone or get together with others, here's what you need to run

their target market. What you need to do is pick the right location to
set up your stall. Marketing is next you need to advertise your

having a bake sale. Send out invitations, e-mail, text, put up
posters. Think about your product, what are you going to sell? You can
bake anything you like, from pizza to cupcakes, it doesn't have to be
complicated. Get creative. You will need to get your recipe,
ingredients and all your baking gear. Once you have all that, start
baking. To set up stall you will need a table and some stuff to
decorate, a tin or small pot to collect money, small change and
kitchen towels. Get creative with your stall, the better it looks the
more customers you will get, that means more money. Include any
dietary notices. How you price your goodies is important. It's best to
price in round numbers. You are now ready to hold your Blue Peter Bake

Now back to the Bake Off Challenge. Two teams are battling out for
Golden Rolling Pin only one can impress the MasterChef judge who is
John Torode. Who is going to win? Previously in the Blue Peter Bake
Off the Red team made a Victoria sponge house and the Blue team did
a toe mattic soup cake. Have you seen anything like that before,
John? First up the Blue team. that's bizarre. The good thing is,
you can't take the tomato soup. I actually think that's really clever.
If you did that, like a bowl of soup, you did a sweet roll with
that andmarzipan fruit you are inventing a dessert. You have two
elements here, Gingerbread and Victoria sponge. I will try me.

flavours. It has real presence, real heart. Is it enough? Both
recipes have been tasted. We must now decide on a winner. Originality
from me is the one they excel on. Bowl of soup, but it's a cake.

door and the heat comes out. They made you into a Gingerbread man and
me the same. I thought it was fun. Gingerbread men didn't taste of
ginger. Would you rather gingery men or a hint of ginger? I would go
with a hint. They did that work and hacked it to bits. They have fallen
down massively. To win would mean anything. I want that trophy.

We did actually come to a decision, didn't we? There can only be one
winner. Our winner of the Blue Peter BakOff is... The Red team.
YES. You don't go away with the rolling pin, you do get these. You
are washing up. No! Just a little bit more, pet.
APPLAUSE I think the applause is for the
winners not necessarily for Naomi and Ed's washing up. It was quite
good washing up. If you want to see the Sarah Jane Adventures gang in
action they will be on your television scenes on Monday at
5.15pm. We want you to go out straightaway and start bake sells
and start raising money. I will now make the Blue Peter appeal, Bake a
