Back in February I met Todd & Rebecca Talbot when I took them (& their two adorbs kids!) cupcakes to the Empress Hotel.
Any Love It Or List It Vancouver fans out there? I started following Todd & the hilarious Jillian Harris as a result of their entertaining repartee on LIOLIV. As I told Todd, their Insta stories have given me life in the entertainment department as I ploughed through many-a-late-night-wedding-cake-session.
(Side note – Todd is AS lovely as he appears on TV, and his wife Rebecca is delightful!!!)
Buuuuuuut back to my post – I also brought this cake with me, which featured the logo for the upcoming B.C. Children’s Hospital Shine Fundrasier/Afternoon Tea/Fashion Show that Todd & Rebecca were M.C.’ing. I have more than one friend who has benefitted from the amazing work done at the BCCF so the hope was that maybe, somehow, someone would benefit from this cake. Even if it was just to feed volunteers, helpers, hosts of the event.
Fortunately the Talbots were able to include this cake in the Live Auction held at The Empress and this cake raised $300 for the BCCF! AWESOME!
The cake itself was a simple fondant covered one tiered cake with a gumpaste replica of the gorgeous drawing created for this special event.
Do you volunteer for a local or international charity? I just personally want to say thank you. I have seen firsthand how both local and international organizations benefit from the countless people who simply ‘show up’. Whether it’s centre stage M.C.’ing a special event, or on the ground in the dirt meeting with people who seem to lack all hope. You are the reason so many important organizations manage to keep going. Thank you for serving.
