I am Dreaming Of Cakes----Making Them,Serving Them and Happily Eating Them !!!
For those that came to the bring and buy plant sale and cream tea fest you will know what I mean!! What a fabulous afternoon we had –the weather was kind to us after an unpromising start and we were able to be outside after all. Everything went ahead as planned and we had a brilliant turnout of people.
Every event we have held has been just perfect and special and this was no different with tea served so elegantly using Diana’s beautiful bone china tea service, cakes on lovely stands – so beautifully presented it was difficult not to over indulge. She and Alan had wanted it to be special and it surely was.
The afternoon raised a wonderful sum that will help toward the operation costs of Huia –little pussy cat, pictured above, after being
shot and both legs broken, has been successfully operated on and is currently with a foster home and will be adopted soon.
Brilliant result! Huge thank you to Diana and Allan for their hard work, planning and generosity and to all those who contributed with plants, cakes, scones, books etc and helped on the day to make it such a great success and of course to everyone who came,spent so generously,and for all the donations of money and plants from those who could not be there .
