Cupcakes 4 Good

Tomorrow, Sunday 6th June I'll be at the International Food Festival - Food 4 Good - at Plaz Aretsou in Krini, Kalamaria (from 8-8.30pm) in Thessaloniki with my cupcakes. The festival will have lots and lots of delicious food from all over the world and I'll be joining the IWOG (International Women's Organisation of Greece) table with 100 cupcakes. There are four flavours: choco-banana with chocolate frosting, vanilla cupcakes with vanilla icing, lavender cupcakes with lime cream cheese frosting and carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. All of them will have my handmade decorations made of homemade sugarpaste in different colours :)

The income from the festival will go to various charities, so here is your chance to eat well for a good cause!

Make sure you drop by to taste some delicious food and scrumptious cupcakes!

Here are some beautiful photos of the cupcakes I made for the event. These photos have been taken by my friend Carolyn Carter who is a photographer (among many other creative things!). You can see more photos of the cupcakes she made on her Facebook fan page called Apali Post or her blog also called Apali Post (blog)

It was so great to participate in this event, and despite the sporadic rain 10,000 euros were raised for local charities. Hopefully next year will be an even more successful one!
