Every year November, the organization Kidz 4 Care in Melkbosstrand, hold a High Tea event.They firstly assist with raising funds, but also create awareness for under privileged kids with specific needs in the area. The organization that they assist with, is the Melkbos Care Centre in Melkbosstrand on the West Coast near Cape Town. You can visit their website on and learn more on the amazing work that they do for these kids, with great success stories coming from each one of them. La Petite Patisserie has been approached by the Kidz 4 Care charity organization for the third year in a row, to create a beautiful centre piece cake, which can be auctioned off to create funds. We have done it with great pride once again, and would love to share some pictures with you of the cake and also of the event as well. banner The lovely flower arrangements was done by the talented Otto Bester from Cape Town. flowers   I have never seen so many confectionary, desserts and cakes donated to one event, all from ladies in the organization and from the area for this very good cause. They worked very hard to make the event a success and with reason.All contributed either time, money, creative talents or their baking expertise to the High Tea. Lieva Starker, were the Violinist that played the violin at the tea that morning, creating just the right mood and setting for a High Tea.
