Happy 17th birthday

1 March 2016 was Trade Me's 17th Birthday and we thought what better way to celebrate than to have a massive cake for the Trade Me team?

Two highly skilled bakers at Trade Me HQ (Sean and Chris) took on the challenge of feeding 300+ people and created a customised chocolate cake covered in all things Trade Me and Aotearoa. 

This big beast consisted of 50 eggs, 25 cups of flour, 14 cups of cocoa, 1.5kg of yoghurt and 10kg of icing. 

After 12 hours of oven time in total and 6 hours of icing it was ready to roll. 

It's fair to say the cake was pretty well enjoyed by the team here and there wasn't a lot in the way of leftovers to be had.

Thanks also to all our members for your support over the last 17 years - it's been a wild ride.
