Pizza’s for Pudsey

Posted on November 12, 2009


Our local Artisan Bakery is The Loaf, in Crich. This week they held a charity ‘Pizzas for Pudsey’ evening in aid of the BBC’s Children in Need. Andrew and Roger were busy planning for the event so I pitched in to help out with a bit of inspiration for the topping of the cakes. The idea being that they match Pudsey Bear’s bandana.

I won’t go into to much detail here as you can find out more as The Loaf has it’s own blog and you can find their posting about the event here.

There were two sittings and George and I attended the first family oriented one where Story Teller Ceri Stevens wove some tales whilst we tried lots of different slices of Pizza. Here George is trying out the Pudsey Buns:

The Pizza’s were fantastic, but they didn’t hang around long enough for us to take a photograph of them. They really were fresh from the oven and lovely: crisp and tasty. I think we both had more than our fair share, whilst poor Ed was at home fending for himself.

Hopefully the Loaf will soon have regular Pizza Nights though so we can go and try them again, and this time we might let Ed come too.

Oh, and if anyone is planning anything for Children in Need I now have a shed load of the four colours of fondant icing going spare!
