Cakes, cakes and more cakes

After baking all day I’ve finally finished making cakes for the Wear Blue for Charlie Day cake sale at work tomorrow. And I think I may have gone slightly overboard.

The only one of these I didn’t make myself is the large one with the photo of Charlie and the Charlie Cookson Foundation logo. And although I’m absolutely exhausted I’m quite pleased with the results.   I’m particularly proud of the mini pineapple upside down cakes which I’ve never tried to do before.

Over 150 different cakes

Over 150 different cakes – hopefully something for everyone

So if I don’t lose any weight when I get weighed in the morning it’ll be down to the amount of cake mix and decorations I’ve tasted today – well I couldn’t sell something without trying it first could I?

Wear Blue for Charlie Day

I’ve already said I’ll be wearing blue for Charlie every day in April but that won’t raise a huge amount of money for the Charlie Cookson Foundation.  So I’ve organised a Wear Blue for Charlie Day at work.

It’s going to be on Monday 18 April and I hope that lots of people will join in.  And to raise more money we’re going to have a cake sale and book sale on the same day.

And to promote the event I’ll be putting a poster up around the building and asking friends and colleagues to do the same in their workplaces.

Blue for Charlie for website

It’s not the best poster in the world (I’m clearly never going to be a graphic designer or artist) but it’s bright and has a lovely picture of Charlie on it so hopefully will attract plenty of attention.

If you’re planning something similar in your workplace feel free to use or adapt my poster to promote your event.
