Watch us bake cupcakes.

This story is not a story about a cupcake nor a cupcake recipe but it is about a beautiful young woman called Waseemah Sait. She is a living wonder, an extraordinary 16 year old who received a liver transplant at the tender age of one. She has a passion for baking cupcakes and loves to watch baking programmes on TV. A week or two back Waseemah did a school project. Her project was a poster detailing her wish list for the next five years. The poster shows that she one day becomes a famous pastry chef and then running her very own bakery in the UK! How lovely is that?

So you may ask what does this have to do with me? Well Reach for a Dream contacted me last week to see if I could in some way assist in bringing some sunshine to Waseemah’s life who has already experienced so many challenges …

I then contacted the lovely Katelyn from Expresso and asked if it is ok if Waseemah could come and bake with me on the show. The answer was an overwhelming yes. So Thursday at 0650 I am going to be baking with this courageous young woman. But there is more, Katelyn, being the wonderful person she is did not stop there … she has organised a little surprise for the young Waseemah on Thursday after the show … but at this stage I am not letting the cat out of the bag.

Waseemah and I will be baking and creating our very own cupcake zoo on Thursday morning. Waseemah, these cupcake pics are specially for you – I hope they make you smile. 🙂 See you Thursday.

Ok, now for the part about the cupcakes. I am not ashamed to say that the cupcake mixture is from Woolies (it is just as good as any home baked cupcake!). The little collection of animals are from Banks in the Cape Quarter.
