It’s Children in Need Day here in the UK. A day when the BBC and much of the British public throw themselves into raising money for children in need.
Last night, I came home to these.
I had quite a lump in my throat; I was so proud.
My daughter had made the cakes on Sunday and frozen them in the freezer. She made the icing on Wednesday after school and had almost finished with the piping bag when I got home yesterday.
Sold at school for 50p a cake, she’ll raise just short of £50! She is one of four who is organising an impromptu cake stall. I’m sure they won’t be standing around for long.
By the way, I’ve been baking too.
It’s my Birthday!
These are for the office; traditionally cakes are bought for your work colleagues on your birthday.
And our department is coincidentally hitting Leeds tonight.
So I might as well start on that cake.
Love, Lucie x
