Mula Cake Bake Off

Today’s post is a little different, as I will be promoting an event that I cannot wait to attend and that any of you are welcome to attend.  If you love cake, clothing and competition, then this is the perfect event for you.

Some of you might have heard of the Croydon-based urban fashion brand, Mula Cake.  Mula Cake will be hosting a bake-off in their showroom, which also happens to be the Lives Not Knives unit where I spend a lot of my time.

The bake-off will start at 1pm and all you have to do is donate at least £1 to taste as much delicious cakes as you like and then vote to decide the winning baker.  Sounds great right?

However, it gets even better, because you will able to watch the competing bakers decorate a plain cake in front of your very eyes.  The founder and CEO of Mula Cake Clothing, Dexter Simms, is really excited to see that his brand can make so many people smile without them even having to buy clothes.  Isn’t that sweet?

Everyone will have the opportunity to hear the winner announced at 3:15pm, when they will receive a prize that will enable them to become a part of the growing Mula Cake Brand, and your host for the day will be Aaron Roach Bridgeman from SBTV.

There will not only be cakes available, but the full range of Mula Cake Clothing will be also be on sale.  Personally, I want to get my hands on some of that Mula Cake Clothing, because their tops are very appealing to the eye.  I love something that pops and their bright, cropped, boxy T-shirts definitely pop.

So get down to the Mula Cake HQ on bank holiday Monday for an afternoon to enjoy.  As Dexter says, “Don’t be left cakeless”.

A Frightening Increase

It is a little frightening to see the rate at which knife crime is increasing.  It is ridiculous to hear about an individual being stabbed at least once a week, and what makes it worse is that most of these stabbings are in my home of South London.

I think that stabbings are unnecessary and I don’t understand why they are becoming such a frequent occurrence.  Life is precious and I can’t fathom why people have such a lack of respect for it, especially the young people.  When you hear about stabbings, it is usually the young people who are carrying out and on the receiving end of the stabbings.

It is like they see using a knife as an easy way to get what they want or a necessary way to gain “respect”.  They do not think about the consequences and in the blink of an eye, that blade could cost an individual their life.

I understand that there are times when an individual can find themself in a sticky situation, but using a knife is never the answer.  All it does is cause further pain and leads to a reign of terror on the streets.

I hate that I am continuously seeing an increase in knife crime and I am seriously wondering if it is too late to stop it.  We need to step up and do something, which is an issue that I have addressed in my article for The Croydon Citizen.
