Cakes for Leeds ABC Support group

271% Raised

Hi I'm Danielle, mum of 3 boys. My eldest and youngest are both on the autistic spectrum, in very different ways.  Autism is a lifelong neurological condition. You can't "catch it" it affects a persons interaction, communication and imagination on a social basis. Both my boys personalities and little quirks and obsessions are because there are autistic, and I wouldn't have them any other way. Yes it's difficult when my eldest has a meltdown. He may scream, shout, hit out, self harm, swear or run. He's not naughty, it's part of his autism. This is because he processes things and sees the world differently. Imagine you were stranded in a foreign country, you can't speak or understand the language, & can only pick out the odd word. How confused and frustrating it would be. This can be what it's like for someone with autism. I won't lie, it's been a rough ride at times. But Leeds ABC support group has been fantastic. ABC provide activities for children and young people on the autistic spectrum, as well as autism training and information sessions. We regularly attend their playgym sessions and holiday activity sessions. It's fantastic to be around people who go through what we do, and understand my boy completely. These activities and sessions (apart from the playgym sessions) are all free of charge to families (funded by ABC) they are a wonderful organisation, fronted by Mandy and Susan, two dedicated parents of young people on the spectrum. They do it voluntarily. I'd like to give something back. So...

I used to have all proceeds go to abc, and have raised over £1000 by doing this. But now I'm a fully registered business with environmental health and have done a food hygiene course. 

My cakes start at around £25 for a basic sponge depending on what is required,  £45 for a 6 inch decorated fondant cake, £55 for an 8in decorated fondant cake, again dependant on detail. cupcakes from £10 for 6. £5 from sales of £45 or more will go to abc.  

Cupcakes start at £6 for 4.
