This Saturday 9th April I’ll donate a cake to ” Cakes for Japan” .
Some local Cake makers will be giving their time and skill by donating cakes, they’ll be sold to the public on Saturday 9th April from 10:00am. All the money will go to the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami appeal.
The event will be held in a pop up shop at The Zellig building Urban Village, Custard factory Gibb street B9 4AA.
This is the cake I’ll be donating
This 3 Tier Cherry Blossom tree Cake is a vanilla sponge filled with a red fruit conserve and a Vanilla Bourbon Buttercream.
I chose to make a Cherry Blossom cake, as Cherry Blossom is an important symbol in Japanese life, and with its short flowering season and delicate flowers is often associated with the fragility of life, but also hope and strength.
I hope the event will have a lot of succes and will raise a maximum of money
