An Awfully Big Adventure

Yes this is me at the real No 10 Downing Street!
If you are not sure what this is it is where the UK Prime Minister lives and works, a bit like the White House, but smaller!
Why was I there, you bring cake to the corridors of power of course!
Myself and Miss Cakehead were creating a special gruesome afternoon tea for The Ministry of Stories, a charity which uses story-telling to inspire young people, teaching them confidence, self-respect and communication. The Ministry took over the state rooms to host a special cabinet meeting to celebrate their second year of providing volunteer led programmes aimed at boosting creativity and literacy.

To compliment the meeting, we laid out a deliciously monstrous tea party, which the children and the adults tucked into with relish!

There were golden dragon''s teeth (they really do make your hair curly!)

A variety of severed ears, pixie, human child and goblin.

Trolls toes.

Pots of mud and worms.

Witches toes.

And arm pit hair..delicious!

I have to say I was a bit nervous (well, alot nervous!), I didn't see any politicians but it was one of the most surreal experiences of my life! And I'm not sure where I could go from there, maybe my caking career has peaked and now it's all down hill! But at least I got a picture.


  1. How fabulous and what an honour to get to go inside No. 10 :)

  2. Congratulations on making it to that famous door! your cakes are so special I hope it's the White House next! Betty x
