*Too Beautiful for Earth *is a collaboration of 26 cake artists from all over the world, who have come together to honour and remember babies born sleeping or who died in the early stages of life and those lost to miscarriage.
Our group have all either experienced personal losses or are connected to the cause through someone they are close to. The love, respect and empathy shared amongst us has been very real.
To see all of the amazing and emotional pieces created for our collaboration please take a look at our Facebook page Too Beautiful for Earth
The uk statistics show that 15 babies are stillborn everyday in the uk and 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Sands (Stillbirth And Neonatal Death charity) supports research to help answer the questions that surround stillbirth and neonatal death as well as providing vital support to those families affected by the loss of a baby and continued training of health care professionals in bereavement care.
If you or someone you love has been touched by miscarriage or baby loss please consider making a donation to support the important work of SANDS.
My piece was inspired by a photograph by the amazing Anne Geddes, I have her book I was gifted many years ago by one of my son’s and still treasure. I hand painted onto a partially flood iced giant shortbread 6" square cookie I baked as well.
Thank you so much Bobbie of http://cakesdecor.com/bobbie for the opportunity to participate in this emotive and meaningful tribute and to all the collaborators who shared thier heartfelt stories
