Red Nose Day 2013
Today it is Red Nose Day in the UK. This is a fundraising event organised by Comic Relief. Anyone who has children in the UK will know about this day as nearly all schools do their part in raising money for this charity. I have 3 children at different schools and they are all taking part in different activities. My Son, the eldest is just donating money and they can buy red noses for the charity. My eldest daughter donates money and goes to school wearing something red. My youngest is donating money, going to school in something red and also having a fun afternoon. The afternoon involves a party where the children can buy cakes. have face painting etc. for small donations.
This year I actually made some homemade cakes for my youngest to take into school - normally I buy shop bought ones! But seen as I now have some recipes for cakes that I can cook, I made them this year! I really need to have more practising with cake decoration. The Top photograph is the cakes that I made. The photograph below is of some cakes that my 10 year old daughter made and designed herself to take to her school.
The recipe we followed for these cakes was my madeira cake recipe - here is the link: http://www.karimascrafts.com/2013/03/madeira-cake-recipe.html
