Just over a year ago I joined an organisation called "Free Cakes for Kids" where volunteer bakers make birthday cakes etc for children, and sometimes adults, who might otherwise not have a cake on their birthday. Since then I've baked quite a few cakes and it is always a delight to see the smiles on faces and how much they are apppreciated. Baking a cake seems like such a small gesture but it can make a difference when life is hard.
This month a big cake was needed for a Christmas party at a children's centre in Cambridge, so I put my hand up and volunteered.
And this is what I came up with... well I still had lots of that navy icing to use up!
