Today is Purple Cake Day, a wonderful event held annually on 1 March to celebrate the children in our lives while empowering those in need around the world. I love purple , I love cake and I love children - this is the perfect event for someone like me!
We organised an afternoon tea for our team at work and arranged for a few of us bakers to get cooking. I got busy making vanilla cupcakes with purple frosting. We purpled up the office and invited staff to bring a cuppa and a donation to join us. A very creative staff member and her nine-year-old son made some beautiful handmade cards which were 'sold' for a minimum donation. Here is our purple spread:
