The red jacket

Happy birthday City Year UK

Happy birthday City Year UK

City Year UK were getting ready to celebrate their 5th birthday. I was delighted to be asked to create a cake and some cupcakes for their celebrations.

We discussed a number of options:
• The (not too original ) corporate cake – a plain cake with a company logo and ‘Happy 5th Birthday’
• A giant number 5
• A photo cake with memorable images of the last five years

City Year is a US based charity, with branches in the UK; they challenge young adults to tackle inequality through volunteering for a year, in schools. They support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to enjoy and succeed at school.

One of the striking things about their volunteers is that they were bright red bomber jackets with the City Year logo. So to celebrate five years in the UK, I created a cake in the shape of the famous jacket, with the City Year logo and the Union Jack patch.

The cake was accompanied by red velvet cupcakes with the City Year logo and the City Year strapline: Give a year, change a life.

“Hi Cynthia,
The cake was fantastic! All our guests loved it and it was delicious. Here’s a photo of the cake. Thank you.”
