Sushi-Inspired Cake Event To Raise Funds For Japan

We're loving the ways creative types are pitching in to raise money for the Japanese relief effort. Authors for Japan was our blog of the week and now another creative charity venture - Cakes for Japan - has caught our eye.

Cakes for Japan is a pop-up shop where you'll be able to buy Japan-inspired cakes made and donated by professional and amateur cake makers from all over London.

The event is being masterminded by Miss Cakehead (Emma Thomas) who some of you may already know from her previous quirky cake projects The Mad Artists Tea Party and Eat Your Heart Out - as eyebrow-raising as they were delicious!

All the money raised by the event will go to the Red Cross's Japan disaster relief fund.

Emma is also encouraging others to host their own Cakes for Japan events - so far Edinburgh, Munich, Leeds and Manchester are all planning their own versions - if you're interested just get in touch.

If you're London based and looking to assist there's a list of the help still needed on the site, otherwise head to Shoreditch with your wallet and your appetite!

Cakes for Japan (London) is taking place at Maiden, 188 Shoreditch High Street, London, E2 11am-7pm Friday 18 March and 12pm-7pm Saturday 19 March.
