You can host an event anytime that suits you! Many people choose to host a Bake A Wish in February or March to make the most of delicious summer baking recipes, but if that doesn’t suit you, you can do it at any other time during the year.

What shall I do about food allergies and food handling?

It's handy to know what ingredients have gone into your baking as some people may have allergies. Mark anything containing nuts, dairy, eggs and gluten and ensure food is prepared, handled and stored in a hygienic way. For more information, we recommend checking out www.foodstandards.gov.au.

Make-A-Wish Australia accepts no responsibility for any issues arising from the selling of foods prepared for Bake A Wish events, including food allergies, food poisoning, anaphylaxis and any other illnesses or sickness caused by food products and/or their preparation, storage, handling, presentation or consumption.
