Special Feature on WHD - Danny talks to Luisa Zissman of Dixie's Cupcakery!
Today WHD spoke with Luisa Zissman of Dixie's Cupcakery who very bravely 'bared all' along with 28 other women to help raise funds for the Cancer Treatment & Research Trust.
This brave move to pose nude for a calendar is to help raise funds for a campaign organised by her friend Charlotte Solomon, after Charlotte suffered a molar pregnancy last year, which causes miscarriage and pre-cancerous cells to form in the womb. This rare condition is suffered by approx. 1500 women a year and can affect anyone at any age.
Luisa said that posing and being snapped for the calendar was great fun for all the women involved and Luisa is Miss January! So far the girls have raised 58k for the charity and is this is before the calendar goes on sale in mid November!
The calendar can be purchased from Luisa's shop - Dixie's Cupcakery which is based at 11 Market Place, St Albans. Dixie's Cupcakery has been open in St Albans since July 2011 and Luisa's motto is 'cupcakes make people smile!'
Luisa has even created a special cupcake named ‘Charlotte’s rocky road’, to help raise funds for her friend’s calendar and campaign.
Luisa is please to say that Charlotte is on the mend and doing well!
