'More Cake, Vicar?' Campaign to Support Anglican Mission Abroad

'More Cake, Vicar?' One mission group certainly hopes so, as it encourages churches to bake and sell cakes to raise funds for Anglican mission abroad.

From carrot cake to Lincolnshire plum bread with marmite, bishops throughout the UK and the Anglican Communion have named their favourite cakes to help launch the 'More Cake, Vicar?' campaign - which is being run by the USPG: Anglicans in World Mission.

It was chocolate all the way for the Rt Rev Graham James, Bishop of Norwich, who said his favourite flavour was "chocolate cake, with chocolate filling and chocolate on top".

Lemon was the most popular type of cake among the bishops, while the quirkiest response came from the Rt Rev Richard Chartres, Bishop of London, who said his favourite cake was fishcake.
