Oak Bay Kiwanian Janet Morningstar with this year’s Christmas cake.

Christmas is coming and Oak Bay Kiwanis has the cake for your holiday table.

Sales begin tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 12) at the Willows Tea Room  from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Additionally, Kiwanis will have a table at Artisans Show and Sale at Monterey Recreation Centre Saturday, Nov. 19 from  10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The annual cake sales add to the club’s ability to support its local initiatives, raising another $2,300 from the 400 cakes sold last year, says Kiwanian Janet Morningstar. All money raised goes directly to the community.

Made by Weston Bakery, “there are lots of pecans – my favourite,” Morningstar says. “There are lots of stories about fruit cakes … however I must admit Kiwanis cakes are good. I believe the secret is lots of fruit and nuts and the knowing that the money spent goes to an excellent cause – Oak Bay Kiwanis supporting Oak Bay community and Greater Victoria.”

The cake sales follow the Pumpkin Art fundraiser, which raised money for Threshold Housing, and the bonfire. The Kiwanis winter breakfast  returns Jan. 8 to mid-April. They also open for Christmas Cakes sales Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
