X-ray time

X-ray cake for hospitalOur local hospital, the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, is raising funds for a new digital x-ray machine. Each year the good people who fund raise for this institution, hold a Jubilee Dinner and for the past few years, have added a cake auction.
This year it was easy to pick a theme — x-ray! So in addition to the patient getting an x-ray, (I actually had to look at an image of a skeleton to get it right!), the cake is surrounded on four sides with edible x-ray images.
I heard the cake got really big bucks and the hospital is that much closer to its goal. Good news indeed.

Get well soon

hospital-bedI did this cake for an annual fundraising dinner and auction for our local hospital. Everything on it is edible — a combination of gumpaste, fondant, royal icing, buttercream and of course, cake! A bit of everything went into the details of this cake.
My favourite has to be the little dinner tray, complete with sliced turkey, peas and carrots, mashed potatoes with butter, a cup of coffee, a teeny muffin with icing and a banana. All from fondant.
I hear it garnered a $500 winning bid at auction, with the funds going to the hospital. I’m tickled pink!

Operation cake

OperationLast night, this cake I made was auctioned off as part of a huge fundraiser for our local hospital. I thought a cake based on the classic board game Operation would go along with the theme of a hospital fundraiser. The cake was huge! A carrot cake that could feed 40 people.
I heard it got a good price at auction and was purchased by a doctor who took it back with her to the hospital the next day and shared it with hospital staff. Win win!
