March is the official month for the annual Bandaged Bear Appeal.
This year I was very pleased and honoured to be asked to be the exclusive cake supplier for Bandaged Bear Day.
This is such a worthy charity that has touched nearly every one of us in some way. What better way to put a smile on people's faces than with cakes and cookies!
So .... for the day I got busy to whip up some treats.
300+ bear paw print cookies were made (and hand decorated and individually wrapped).
250 vanilla and chocolate cupcakes (all completely nut free) all topped with handmade bear paw print toppers.
All monies raised from the sale of the cakes and cookies went directly to the Bandaged Bear Appeal.
The week of the appeal, our local newspaper the Northern District Times, ran a little story on me! Liam was very proud to see him mummy in the paper and I quickly ran out and got an arm full of copies! Best part of this was that there was even more awareness of this wonderful cause.
The newspaper article. You can read it online here.
Set up in the foyer of Westmead Children's Hospital with beautiful hospital staff selling the treats! The vanilla and chocolate cupcakes The paw print cookies.
What a wonderful day and one that will stay with me for a while to come.
Happy Bandaged Bear Day to everyone! :o)
