Charity Garden Party cupcakes

Here are pictures of around 75 cupcakes that I donated to a garden party, which was being held today to raise money for The Aurora Centre. This is a charity that runs beauty salons based in both Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Mexborough Montagu hospital, with a new premises due to open up in Bassetlaw - their clients are people who are undergoing treatment for cancer, along with their relatives.

Their aim is to improve the lives of those affected by cancer by offering free of charge expert techniques, including beauty therapy to improve body image for patients suffering from the effects of cancer and the side effects of treatment. They offer: pamper days, advice on hair loss, therapeutic massage, make-up advice, eyelash and eyebrow enhancement, skin care and they have recently introduced therapies for male clients too.

The garden party was a great success, raising £700 for this very worthy cause and I am proud to have been a part of it.

100 and something cupcakes...

I was asked to provide 100 cupcakes to a school in Leeds for their end of term staff presentation. I ended up making a few more than the 100 ordered. Moist vanilla sponge with butter cream swirl, topped with juicy fresh berries, sweets, biscuits, sprinkles, glitter and more! Enjoy!

Seacroft Gala 2nd July 2011

My first ever cupcake stall! Went really well - every last cupcake sold!

There were vanilla and chocolate flavoured sponge cakes with vanilla, chocolate, orange, strawberry and blueberry toppings with pretty decorations to suit all tastes. A fantastic day, which resulted in a subsequent order for wedding cupcakes from someone who had bought cakes from the stall! :)
