2014 begins...Valentine Bake Sale and a giveaway!
With the festive season over and the decorations all put away it's time to start thinking about the year ahead. For me January is about returning to a normal routine and enjoying birthday celebrations. Both my 'big sister' and I will be another year older in the next few weeks. Some retail shops seem to be geared up for the next season before the New Year even arrives, who else has spotted the Easter eggs?? Although it seems early, it has reminded me that it's time to get prepared. Before I started as a business I held charity bake sales for Valentines Day and I've continued to do so, raising money for a different charity each year. This year I will be carrying on the tradition and selling special boxes of 4 cupcakes (vanilla, chocolate or red velvet) with handmade decorations which will be presented in a gift box. This price includes delivery in Cardiff, Cwmbran or anywhere in between on Thursday 13th, Friday 14th or Saturday 15th February. Each box will be £7 with at least £5 being donated to charity. To give one lucky recipient an extra special surprise one of the boxes will also have a hidden voucher for 12 cupcakes in a flavour of their choice! My charity for this year is Velindre Cancer Centre. I'm not really sure what to say about Velindre to do it justice but the work that is done there really does change peoples lives. The people who work at the centre are just amazing and South Wales is lucky to have such a fantastic facility for people who are dealing with this terrible illness.
