On 28 November 2010, a group of Cape Town food bloggers gathered together at our house to bake red velvet cupcakes, under the expert guidance of Hila Jonker (@LadyRaven), in aid of a charity called Nosh4Noah with the aim of raising money for therapy for Noah, a four year old who is on the Autism spectrum.

Kamini Pather (@Ms_Kamini) covered the morning’s event on her delightful blog and you can read all about it here.

It was a fun morning, full of good cheer. This is our story, in pictures:
