Children In Need

As most of you will know, it was CiN last Friday. For those abroad, Children in Need is a huge UK charity and has an annual major fundraising day which involves schools and workplaces doing fun things to raise money. This is all then followed by an evening of television with sketches, live performances, charity films etc. It's a great cause so check out their website BBC - Children in Need - Changing Children's Lives and take a moment to donate if you can. Thanks :)

Anyway, my school had a mufti day and had to wear spots and stripes. There were crazy hat competitions, dress up the teacher, coin races, tuck sales and face painting. Best of all, our Deputy Head wore a dress and some impressive heels. He's a man, just so you know ;) There was also a Pudsey cake competition by the food technology department. Pudsey is the CIN mascot, a yellow teddy with a spotty head bandana. Of course I entered! I wanted to do a sponge cake but the entry requirements stated that they had to be six fairy  cakes. I won, but Mr Goldsmith (judge and food tech teacher) still hasn't given me my prize! Gosh(!)


  1. I am in love with your cake decorations! :) you have great skills!

  2. Tash, I'm pretty much a devoted reader of your blog. But my one criticism is that you don't post the recipes for your designs! Or do you, and I just haven't found them yet? o.O Anyway, that aside your cakes are fabulous - congratulations!

  3. Ahaha, thank you very much :) The reason I don't post recipes is because I always use my grandmother's which are held under lock and key. I might get a smack if I leak the secret documents. However, when I use other recipes, I will be very happy to post them. I'm also planning to do a post on basic techniques for decorating. Thanks for the lovely comment :)
