In December 2005 we got a phonecall from “Let’s Fix it” (A program on E-TV which makes dreams come true for people who can’t afford to make their own dreams come true) to ask us if we would like to sponsor a christmas party for 30 pensioners in Athlone- our response “ABSOLUTELY!”
So we called up a friend who owns a decor company (Nadine from Theme Creations 0828550918) to ask if she would like to come onboard and do the decor for the party- her response “ABSOLUTELY!”
And so it happened- we did a selection of chocolate cupcakes with each pensioners name piped on each cupcake, a selection of bright red vanilla petit fours with gold stars and christmas trees piped on each one, Wicked chocolate cake “Flower Pots” each planted with a red rose and touched with our edible gold paint, christmas tree shaped cookies, homemade sweeti-pies painted with gold edible paint and wicked chocolate cake covered in white icing with red roses in the centre. Nadine and her team did an unbelievable job with the decor using red roses, gold base plates, gold organza saches at the back of each chair, christmas crackers and LOADSSSS more.
The party was an unbelievable hit, but it didn’t end there…
Next up was a christmas party for 500 underprivlidged children in Belville. We did 5 cakes each served 100 kids- we did a range of chocolate and vanilla cakes covered in white buttericing with christmas trees, stars and candy canes piped in bright colours on each cake. The kids went CRAZY- they had an AMAZING time and we had enough cake to feed every child twice.
The show was aired on Christmas day 2005- where they showed an interview with me (Alex) and my sister Dani setting up each party and discussing what we had done- FAME AT LAST!
I have attached a photo of the pensioners christmas party for everyone to see.
Have a FABULOUS day and watch this space for lots more blogging.
