Cakes, Cakes and More Cakes (#11)

Yes, I’m being serious, 100 cupcakes sold for comic relief and another 50 made and given to our Local Homeless.

Red Velvet with a white chocolate buttercream topped with an aniseed ball, I also made some blue velvet with frame buttercream and raspberry Bon bon for those have a phobia against the reds 😉



These cakes were simply decorated due to the amount and as I only have a normal cooker that will cook 12 at a time, it was a long job 😀

Worth Every second to see that I went over £400 on my sponsor page including the money for My 25 Mile Bike ride, I cannot thank people enough amazing, #TeamHonk are amazing and if you see here you can see how many people have been involved and donated, from Hair Cuts with 25 pairs of Scissors in 25 minutes to wearing a Bakofoil dress 😉


Somewhere in there I also made another cake for a friend and as I type make another not sure if I will blog about the one today as its rather rude 😉 *blushes whilst typing*
