Cake knows no generation gaps ;-)
Yes, you heard me right – cake! The team at TEDxBrighton are busy making sure our event on 26th October will be something to remember and part of the arrangements have been able to secure a source of cake for attendees.
Emma Jane responded to a tweet from our co-producer Natalie asking if anyone would like to bake for the event. (A good example of changing technology and the importance of short form communication, as per our earlier blog post.) Emma attended TEDxBrighton 2011 and is really keen to support this year’s event. In her own words
To me, TED is an incredibly inspiring concept – I love anything that brings people and ideas together, so I’m really pleased to be able to contribute with my baking this year.
We are really pleased to have her onboard for the event. On the theme of bringing people together, I can’t think of many things that bring people together across social boundaries more effectively than cake and sharing cake is an amazing way to put smiles on people’s faces. Having had a quick look at some of Emma’s creations (see pics) I am confident her cupcakes for the event will do just that
Emma’s thoughts on The Generation Gap:
I’m really excited about the theme of The Generation Gap. To me, this is a very relevant topic for all of us. I think we have so much to learn from each other across generations (my love of baking and craft was influenced by my grandmother- when I was six she taught me how to knit while we ate homemade chocolate cake) and it’s wonderful to see that the subject of The Generation Gap is being covered at TEDx from many different perspectives.
Thank you so much for volunteering your baking skills, Emma!
