Changing the World: One cake at a time

As the title suggests, this is a post about the wonderful cafe that the Guides ran last weekend. I'm so proud of them - anyone who is known to roll their eyes, despairing of the 'youth of today' had better not come within a 10 mile range of me at the moment. Our girls having decided that they would support Help the Hospices (and the North London Hospice in particular) as part of their Changing the World project decided that phase 2 of their project would be to host and run a cafe in their Guide Hut. Which they did, and raised (at the last count, with more monies to come in) nearly £300.
The girls made cakes, decorated terracota plots and then grew nasturtiums, marigolds and herbs to go in said pots, ran a raffle, and put on a performance of songs and dances for the assembled audience. I don't think I need say any more, as save for a small panic the day before as to whether the Guinness in Nigella's chocolate Guinness cake would cook out so it was suitable for children! very little of the work was done by me... all the praise is due to a unit of 10 girls aged between 10 and 14.
As much as I would love to show you pictures of the girls, Child Protection means that I can't, however their cakes and hard work all come below:
