TESTIMONIALS

Hi Joanne,
I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I am with the scooter cake you made me for my hubby's 50th birthday, I almost burst into tears when you opened the box, it is way beyond anything I expected, considering I didn't give you a lot of notice, it's absolutely amazing, you are so talented, thank you so so much he is going to love it. It's going to be all over Instagram and Facebook this time tomorrow.
Again, thank you so much, the day is going to be so much better thanks to your amazing talent. Diane Kalu

Help Harry Help Others - Harry Mosely Cake from Taste of HomeCake for the charity "Help Harry Help Others"

This cake is very special to me, I created it to raise money for the “Help Harry Help Others” campaign. We’ve all heard about Harry Moseley here in Birmingham. Harry was an amazing, strong, courageous and admirable young boy, who sadly had an inoperable brain tumour. Although he was very poorly himself, Harry wanted to help others, so he made bracelets to raise money for those who suffered from cancer, he sadly died last year at the age of 11. Harry was a little boy with a big heart, personality and courage. His story has touched millions of people all around the world and over 11,000 people participated in the “Walk for Harry” earlier this month in Birmingham. The walk raised a whopping £420,000! And the bracelets are still been made and sold today and this is how I met Stella…

Stella DryhurstStella Dryhurst is a 14 year old schoolgirl with huge compassion and a beautiful personality. She contacted me a month ago asking if I could help her raise money for Harry Moseley’s charity, without hesitation I accepted. We kept in regular contact during the following weeks and I realised each day more and more how wonderful Stella is, she really put everything into raising money for Harry, working weekends and evenings making bracelets and contacting businesses like mine asking for prize donations for a raffle that was to be held at her school “ Bishop Walsh Catholic School” in Sutton Coldfield, Walsall. She managed to get together an amazing list of prizes, Stella truly is an inspiration. She has raised an amazing £700 so far by selling bracelets and raffle tickets, her goal is to raise £1000. If you want to buy bracelets from Stella and help her raise more money for Harry, please send me an email and I’ll put you in touch with Stella.

I got in contact with Georgina, Harry’s Mum, who is absolutely amazing. She gave me a lovely photo of Harry which I printed onto edible paper for my cake creation, she also gave me lots of interesting details about Harry, his favourite colour was Hot Pink and his signature quote was “Make it Happen.” So armed with this information I set about creating the cake. The bottom tier representing Harry’s logo, the middle tier in Hot Pink, including Harry’s famous quote and the top tier with his photo. It was a very special cake to make and I was very honoured to be able to help Stella and the Charity.

Cherry Blossom Cake - Taste of Home sponsors Cakes for Japan Event Birmigham

£70 raised by Taste of Home for Cakes for Japan

I raised £70 for Cakes for Japan at a Pop-Up Cake Shop at the Custard Factory in Gibb Street, Birmigham on Saturday 9th April 2011.

I chose to make a cake decorated with Cherry Blossom as it's an important symbol in Japanese life.

With its short flowering season and delicate flowers it is often associated with the fragility of life, but also hope and stength.

I wanted to create a cake that was both beautiful and meaningful.

Taste of Home Birmingham raised over £1000 for Cakes for Japan at the Custard Factory Birmingham West Midlands
