Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea

For this year's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, we hosted a delicious morning tea in our Sydney office to raise funds for the Cancer Council. With one in two Australian men and women diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, it was a cause that we were more than happy to support and we were thrilled to raise more than $1600.

As with all our company bake-offs, Tempsters did not hesitate in pulling out all the stops with their culinary creations, and there was an impressive smorgasbord of treats from flans to friands. After much deliberation (and ample tasting), our judges Editor Selma, Warehouse Manager Craig and Customer Care Consultant Chloe declared the entries that stole the show:

Divisional Merchandise Manager Roger's 'compost cookies' loosely based on Christina Tosi's Momofuku Milk Bar version, but made extra chunkier with coconut flakes, dried fruit and leftover muesli. Roger likes to make them in extra-large batches so he can just roll them into balls, freeze them and then have them ready to bake whenever the cravings set in. Yes, please.
