Pretty Pink for Yasmine!



A cake collaboration to remember and celebrate the life of Yasmine, a very special little girl. Aged 5, Yasmine developed a brain tumour and battled against all odds for five months, embracing each day and never complaining. Sadly it wasn't a battle she could win. Ten years after her passing, we remember her. Today, March 2nd, 2015, marks Yasmine's 15th birthday and we'd like to invite you to celebrate with us! Pink was Yasmine's favourite colour and she loved all things girly, including princesses and fairytales and her favourite place was Disneyland.

33 cake artists have come together, along with Yasmine's mum, to throw a pink party in her memory and we would love you to get involved!
"UK based charity CLIC Sargent supported Yasmine's family throughout her illness. Every day, 10 children and young people in the UK alone, hear the shocking news they have cancer. We'd like to invite you to visit clicsargent.org.uk to read more about the work of this wonderful charity and if you're able visit our Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/prettypinkforyasmine/ and make a donation, no matter how small, in Yasmine's memory. As a thank you we will send you a tutorial for making wafer paper leaves, be sure to leave your email address in the Just Giving comments if you'd like to receive it. "

For a beautiful video done by Yasmine's big brother of all the gorgeous and stunning sugar creations that have been created as part of this lovely collaboration, please visit the following link:

MEMORIES.......
Remember Me with a smiling face,
Remember Me during the happy times,
Remember Me learning to ride a bike,
Remember Me being kissed by you when I fell,
Remember Me skipping a rope in the garden,
Remember Me twirling about being a Ballerina,
Remember Me listening to a fairytale with wonderment on my face,
Remember Me sewing a beautiful piece with you and being so proud,
Remember Me running around with joy just because I felt like it,
Remember Me visiting all the places I loved and my glowing face,
Remember Me in pink 'cos that's the colour I loved,
Remember Me being your little Princess,
Remember my face lighting up when I saw you,
Remember the laughter we shared,
Remember Me being painless in a place full of Angels watching over YOU..............

A piece to commemorate Yasmine - Grace with some of the things she loved. A Pink gravity defying Tree House with few of the things she loved to do lying around....Bicycle, skipping rope, ballet shoes created with sugar.
 Thank you so much for inviting me to be part of such a meaningful and close to your heart collaboration Bobbie-Anne, and for giving me the opportunity to work alongside such wonderful and warm hearted talented Souls.
