Cakes galore

Selling cakes for a good cause

Selling cupcakes for a good cause

On my way to Rococo chocolates at the weekend I was stopped in Motcomb Street [map]by some friendly people trying to sell me cupcakes. I did explain to them I was about to take a chocolate masterclass, so they understood cake wasn’t exactly what I needed right then! But I took a photo of them with their cakes, none the less.

They were selling their luscious looking cakes for a good cause – ‘Cake a difference‘ was raising money for Bliss, the special baby care charity. They were only there for the one day, but they were pretty sure there would be other cupcake events for Bliss later on in the year, so I hope to catch up with them again some time.
