Children in Need - Fancy a Spot of Cake?

I wrote about a week ago how we are doing out bit for Children in Need by cutting all my other half's hair off. So when I was contacted about helping promote Children in Need by their lovely PR I was more than happy to help them out. So you will be seeing a few blog posts about Children in Need on my blog which will be live on BBC on Friday 18th November.

This blog post is about the Fancy a Spot of Cake App on their Facebook page. Here's some information sent to me:

This year, for the first time ever, BBC Children in Need has launched its very own Facebook app titled ‘Fancy a Spot of Cake’ to help raise money for the charity. The aim of the app is to build the largest digital cake through user donations. It’s not only a first for the charity, but the first time any charity has received donations directly through Facebook. 
The charity’s partnership with PayPal has enabled access to cutting edge technology to create a seamless experience of interacting with the cake whilst securely donating money.By donating £1, £5, £10 or £20 a user can purchase various items to add to the cake via PayPal. With every donation received via the app, users add their very own layer, filling or decoration to the cake. 
Once they have donated, they can share it with friends by posting updates to their Facebook wall and telling everyone about it on twitter using #CiNcake. After donating, Facebook users are tagged on their own personal contribution of the cake, encouraging friends to join them.In addition to user created layers, BBC Children in Need will be releasing special layers featuring exclusive footage from BBC shows. Current confirmed special layers include popular BBC programmes such as The One Show, EastEnders, Strictly Come Dancing, and The Graham Norton Show plus special footage of the BBC Children in Need POP Goes the Musical performances from the London’s West End. 
The 'Fancy a Spot of Cake' app was created and designed by Independents United and built by Gamaroff Digital.
 So let's make the biggest digital cake for a very good cause. You can add a spot to the cake for £1, pillars/filling/icing/sponge for £5, add Pudsey or Blush for £10 or create your very own tier for £20. Currently the cake is just about to hit £900 and is only the size of a person (average 1.7 meters). How about we kick this cake up to... the size of Big Ben? Or maybe as tall as Snowdon? Go on it's totally worth it!

Need to change the name of the Graham's show to "The Pudsey Show" it seems!

Click the link for the Children in Need Facebook Page, 'Like' the page and go to the "Fancy a Spot of Cake" app to donate and help us make a big digital cake. Cooking skills are not required!
