‘The Depressed Cake Shop Cymru’
Monday, 12 August 2013 | sarah@thevanillavalley
Here at Wedding Acrylics HQ, we are so proud to be supporting ‘The Depressed Cake Shop Cymru’.
The Depressed Cake Shop is travelling across the Nation with pop-up cake shops in order to raise awareness of Mental Health. National Statistics say that 1 in 4 of us will suffer with Mental Health Issues during our lifetime. That seems shockingly high right? It’s because there isn’t enough awareness about it!
There’s only one rule for these pop-up cake shops: All cakes MUST be GREY on the outside to symbolise how when one is suffering from Mental Health, it can feel like the colour has been drained from your life. The inside of these cakes though are a completely different story – both symbolically and physically. Bite into one of these grey cakes to reveal beautiful and vibrant colourful designs – symbolic of how you’re still the same person inside that’s just waiting to burst back into your colourful life.
The Depressed Cake Shop Cymru, supporting ‘Mind Cymru’, are gearing up for a massive awareness raising weekend at the end of August. Whether you want to get involved or just attend, make sure you pencil it into your diary!!
We have plenty on offer here at Wedding Acrylics to help you make, bake and decorate your cakes, see our dedicated page here.
The main event is being held 31st August and 1st September in Cardiff Fashion Quarter. For more details, to show your support, spread the word or to volunteer (PLEASE!!)check out their Facebook group facebook.com/DepressedCakeShopCymru.
