Cakes for Japan, Edinburgh - Saturday 26 March

It's impossible not to be moved by the recent events in Japan.  The news has been harrowing and the images nightmarish.  There are a number of ways in which people can help and donate, and fundraising events taking place, such as Authors for Japan.  In Edinburgh, Cakes for Japan will be taking place on Saturday 26 March from 11am at Quaker House, 7 Victoria Terrace.  Bakers from Edinburgh and beyond will be donating their baked goods, with all the profits going to the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.  Those taking part include Cuckoos Bakery and Cakes By Lyndsey, vegan treats will be available and Edinburgh University's Japanese Choir will be showing support in song.  I will be doing some Japanese inspired baking - chocolate wasabi fudge cake, cherry blossom cakes and perhaps some anime cupcakes. 

If you'd like to donate or help out, please email Donna McGrory on dee (@) or contact her on twitter @DeeItsy - it's an amazing thing to organise and I'm really pleased this is happening in Edinburgh along with other places in the UK.
