I know it is very difficult to face up to silly people who say bought cakes only, but it is only a rather cruel rule made up by bossy people.
There is no legislation which forbids home-made jams, pickles or cakes for one-off events.
I know from personal knowledge of a daughter who was forbidden to take a birthday cake into a care home for her mother.
But, since 13 December 2014 you have to be sure that every cooked item is labelled with allergy information.
From experience with our local WI people will not buy bought cakes.
