Culinary experts are making a celebration iced cake to help back The Journal’s campaign to safeguard the Bubble Foundation.

The North Eastern Culinary Trade Association Sugarcraft is launching its Bloom for the Bubble in support of the charity.

People in the region are being encouraged to make a sugar flower of any colour and size to decorate the 12-tier cake.

Each person who makes a sugar flower will then be asked to give a donation to the Bubble Foundation.

Allison Wilkinson, chairman of NECTA Sugarcraft, said: “The Bubble Foundation does an amazing job and it’s so important that people support the charity.”

The Bloom for the Bubble will continue to the end of May, where the cake will then be the exhibition showpiece at the NECTA Salon Culinaire at Newcastle’s Civic Centre.

For more than 20 years, the Bubble Foundation has helped children with immune deficiency problems at Newcastle’s Bubble unit. However, funds to the charity have dwindled and the Foundation is now at serious risk of closure.

If the charity was to cease then it would mean research into immune system problems may stop and the region could potentially lose leading experts in this field.
