I am proud to support Bake-a-Wish Ireland, a heart warming charity which aims to help children with life threatening and life shortening conditions, and their siblings, to celebrate a birthday or special day in style, with a stunning cake! This small gesture, often decorated with a favourite character, always brings a welcome smile to children's faces and we are very happy to be a part of that. I have made three cakes for Bake A Wish and love being involved in this wonderful inniative.

Supergirl - 2017
I made my third Bake-a-Wish Cake recently for Isabella, a little girl who was celebrating turning 6. Isabella's mum always referred to her as 'our princess' but she was has a super hero streak and got a Supergirl cake. It was a two tier Chocolate Biscuit Cake with an edible figure on top.
Iron Man and Captain America - 2016My second Bake-a-Wish cake is a double sided Iron Man and Captain America cake, which I made in 2016. Brandon's only request was for a super hero birthday cake that said 'no more chemo'. I wanted of course, to fulfil his request but also to give him a cake that didn't mention his treatment - and for him to have a cake like any other little boy.
I decided it was the perfect opportunity to do a double sided cake. One half with the 'No More Chemo' Message and the other half with good ole Happy Birthday. He loved it and his Mum loved it so it was worth all the effort. It took ages to make but I was delighted to help make his party all the more memorable.
Doc McStuffins - 2015
I made my first Bake-a-Wish Cake in 2015 for Ruby, a little girl who was celebrating turning 2. Ruby is a huge Doc McStuffins fan, as is my daughter, so I had no shortage of inspiration.
