While I’ll be back in a couple of days to say more about this project, I thought it was probably wise to confirm here that Suzzle will indeed be hosting the rather wonderful Depressed Cake Shop from 2-4 August. This is the lovely Miss Cakehead’s charity project for the year, and it’s struck a chord not only here in London, but in places all over the UK, the US, and now possibly even in Australia.
So why the shades of grey? Because every single cake, biscuit and macaron sold will be grey. This is a pop-up that is close to my heart for a number of reasons, and it will be held not only to raise funds for CALM, but also to raise awareness in general of mental health issues and spark discussion. Too often, people don’t talk about their mental health problems until they’ve become very serious or, in the saddest cases, until it is quite literally too late to save them. We’re hoping this will go some small way to change that.
This is one of the rare occasions where we will be selling cakes with gluten in, but there will still be gluten and lactose free cakes available as well as – I believe – some vegan cakes, too. So pop the dates in your diary: it’ll be on for three days, including a Saturday and Sunday, and this much deliciousness in a good cause should not be missed 🙂
