Charity fashion show for The Bristol Down Syndrome Trust

Sunday 13th October 2014 Lacia Nolan salon director of Crowning glorie hairdressing put on a fashion show and raffle to raise money for the charity.

Cakesmiths donated the bite size cupcakes to raise money for the charity.
The event was a huge success and raised allot of money for the trust.

The Bristol Down Syndrome Trust provides Speech and Language Therapy for pre-school and primary school aged children who have Down Syndrome.

The therapy is provided in groups of up to five children. The groups are generally arranged according to the age of the children. The children attend every other week in school term time.

The sessions have a theme and the activities are based around the theme. Makaton Signs are used extensively, as they are an invaluable aid to language development for the children.

Children can start the preschool groups from around 15 months. The emphasis is on working on a range of interaction skills that are essential for successful communication to develop. Vocabulary that is relevant to the children is also introduced.

Lambeth wedding cake inspired by Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake.

The announcement of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal engagement, royal family watchers and fans wanted to know all the details of their wedding plans, who was going to design their wedding cake.

The task was given to British designer Fiona Cairns, created an eight-tiered, beautifully delicate cake inspired by the Lambeth style. Created in the 1930s by Joseph Lambeth 

The cake design was based loosely based on the classical lambeth method, royal icing over-piping for cakes. The technique creates dazzling, intricate depth using layers of over-piping.

I have creating the cake below inspired of the Lambeth piping bringing this time consuming and very technical method back into fashion.

Here is a short video of the eight tier royal wedding cake.
