My Fun Homemade Cupcakes for Charity

I organised a fund raising 'BAKING DAY' for charity at work yesterday to raise money for 'Children In Need'.
It was a brilliant day, so many people brought in home-baked goodies, cakes, muffins, cookies, biscuits, brownies, fudge etc and we sold them ALL. We raised quite a lot of money and had a fun day :o)

This is a chocolate cake I baked. The following pictures are of things I and other colleagus made... please take a look :o)

Who We Are Helping:
Children In Need is an annual event that raises money and gives it to charities and projects that work to improve the lives of children and young people throughout the UK.

The donated money goes towards many things including helping children with severe physical disabilities, helping underprivileged children while their mother receives treatment for a life-threatening medical condition,
looking after children with cancer, paying for therapy sessions for sexually-abused children, paying for counselling sessions for children affected by violence at home etc
