A to Z of Cake – Who doesn’t like cake?

posted in: Events, News | 0

Every June, Independent Phoenix Traders across the country raise money for the fabulous charity Together for Short lives, formerly Children’s Hospices. Many traders host Butterfly Tea Parties – my own party is at my Ely house on Friday 19th June from 11am to 9pm. Phoenix Trading releases a set of products especially designed for the BTPs and a donation is made to the charity for every one of these products ordered during June.

This year, inspired by a brand new giftwrap, A to Z of Cakes, designed for Phoenix Trading by the talented illustrator Amanda Loverseed, I thought I’d do something else as well as my BTP. Eighteen amateur bakers from across Cambridgeshire have volunteered to bake the cakes illustrated on the giftwrap, but re-created in their own individual styles. Cakes include Princess Cake, Chocolate Cake, Red Velvet Cake, Naughty Cakes and a Victoria Sponge. A Facebook event has been created for the cake auction and bidding closes on a different cake each weekday in June. The bakers will take photos of their finished cakes so we will be able to see how their efforts compare with the original illustrations! All money raised from the auction will go directly to Together for Short Lives.
