|I was so inspired and could not imagine the pride of a mother when Meg, one of my customers in London, mentioned that her daughter, Georgie, had a dream ~ Now I have a 10 year old, and have some idea of what most kids about that age dream of, want, "need"...|
When I hopped over to her mum's site (the best cupcakes in London!), Bunny and Boo, to see the book, I was blown away at the resourcefulness of Georgie, and ordered the book immediately.
Georgie, after visiting her 4 year old friend who was having treatment at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for a rare brain tumour, decided that she would find a way to raise the L20,000 needed for a new ward for the children and their families. She didn't stop at the thought of a bake sale, she told her parents that she was going to write a cookbook, and sell it...
And she then wrote to many celebrities agents, asking for a recipe ~
The cookbook contains recipes and a note from Nigella Lawson, Sophie Dahl, Ina Garten, and many more. I am truly amazed at the resourcefulness and most of all the huge heart that this lovely girl has, and pray that my children will show such strengths of character.

|Georgie has been all over the London Press, and is shown here with Gino D'Acampo on "This Morning" television show.|
"Went Into Great Ormond Street Today to decorating cupcakes with some children, i met lots, some were really sweet and gorgeous, the others cheekey, all fab though! I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to see how the money I raise will help, but they were so amazing and kind and showed me so many things, It was great to see. I loved meeting everyone and I look forward to seeing them again! Love Georgie! XX"
