Cathryn Andrews, who runs Icing Occasions, is hoping to raise as much as she can for the Hughes Syndrome Foundation.
A Honiton cake maker is hoping to stir up the spirit of giving and raise as much money as she can for the Hughes Syndrome Foundation.
Cathryn Andrews, who runs Icing Occasions, will be giving 10p from every cupcake sold to the charity to help improve the lives of patients with the condition.
The cause is close to her heart as her youngest son Daniel, who is only 29, was diagnosed with catastrophic hughes syndrome. Hughes syndrome is a blood clotting disorder which can cause strokes, heart attacks and blood clots in the lung.
Cathryn said: “If people support the shop they will be helping to support the charity as well.”
Icing Occasions is located at 59 High Street behind Violet and Grey.
