Sweet treats were on the menu at a tea room event.

First Step hosted a special sugarcraft workshop with Adele Bywater, secretary of the Romford branch of the British Sugercraft Guild.

The demonstration, which also included general cake decorating, was a success, raising more than £50.

Michelle Mitchell, the charity’s fundraising manager, said: “We are very grateful to Adele for donating her time to come and demonstrate sugarcraft to the attendees of Tasty Treats.

“Adele was very inspiring and we were all amazed by her technical skills and how lovely the cakes were decorated.”

The next Tasty Treats morning will take place on October 16, featuring an art exhibition incorporating work by Havering artists.

To take part, call the charity on 01708 556355.
