Bake off a hit for Maxine McKew’s campaign to retain Bennalong

Cakes in the bake off during Maxine McKew's election campaign in Bennelong

It wasn’t quite Masterchef but the bake off in Eastwood Mall today was a winner. There were cakes a-plenty arriving all morning at the Eastwood Mall for the 1pm judging where Maxine’s helpers almost outnumbered the shoppers.

The winning cake for this supporter was the coconut and rhubbard cake. Sales of that recipe alone could fund several campaigns into the future!

The multitude of pink and purple balloons were the big hit with the children. It’s quite a carnival atmosphere at Eastwood with seemingly hundreds of Maxine’s supporters group in their striking purple t-shirts handing out balloons up and down the mall.

Balloons galore for Maxine's campaign

Maxine holds the seat of Bennelong – won from then Prime Minister John Howard in 2007 – by the smallest of margins. It’s great to see her working so hard in her electorate and getting fantastic support from so many people – not just the purple army working for her – but so many people in the electorate who obviously love her work and commitment to the community.

Still, I have to say many of the cakes were to die for. The macadamia and prune cake – another sensation – and it’s got to be good for us.
