Cakes for Japan

Cakes for a great cause

It’s funny how things snowball. A chance RT from @EdinburghCake (Alison Lesley), that had my name written all over it, was a tweet about Cakes for Japan put out by Dee McGrory aka @DeeItsy.

Spurred on by the event that was being organised in London, Dee tweeted for anyone who would be willing to make cakes or help out at a similar event to be held in Edinburgh. And, well you know me … anything to do with cake, I’m first in the queue along with Alison – me baking, she eating!

There’s a cornucopia of cakeyness being prepared for this Saturday, 27th March; not only do we have a natural, gluten free cake by Love Pure Cakes, designer cupcakes from Cakes by Lyndsay, cupcakes by Cuckoo’s Bakery and cake from Mimi’s Bakehouse, but also celebrity chef Jacqueline O’Donnell from The Sisters in Glasgow and new boy, Mark Greenaway from Restaurant Mark Greenaway will be with us to open the event.

Tower of Sin Cake

This is my contribution, a cake recipe I tested for Vanessa Kimbell’s book Prepped!
This beauty and other cakes made by some very generous people will include these wonders. I, for one, will sampling as many as I possibly can!

Momji & Geisha Cookies; Green Tea Cupcakes (Vegan & Non); Sushi style pops; Cherry Blossom Cake; Rising Sun Fairy Cakes; Red Velvet Cupcakes; BakersBunny’s, ‘Tower of Sin’;  Peanut Butter Fudge cups; Hello Kitty Cookies; Nintendo Character Cakes;  Ginger and Orange Cake; Banana Bread (Vegan); Japanese-style Cheesecake (Vegan & Non); Chocolate & Chilli Brownies; Chocolate Fudge Brownies (Vegan); Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes; Cherry Blossom cookies; Chocolate & Cherry Cupcakes; Orange and Almond Cake (Vegan); Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (Vegan); Sushi inspired cake bites; Cherry Pie (Vegan).

So dig deep into your pockets, dig out elasticated waist banded trousers and join us at The Quaker Meeting House, 7 Victoria Terrace from 11am till 3pm.

If you want to bake a cake or help out,  please contact Dee either on Twitter, @DeeItsy or email her: dee@itsy.org.uk
