In June 2009, members of the Craftivist Collective met to make ethical cupcakes, and finish them off with homemade flags with development thoughts on them.

Half the cakes where lemon flavoured so had on the flags on one side saying “fairtrade lemon gluten free cakes”. And on the other “Dont let injustice leave a bitter taste in your mouth. Take action against it”.

The chocolate flavoured cakes said ‘Gluten free fairtrade chocolate cakes” on one side and the other said said “Most cocoa farmers will never get the chance to afford to experience the taste of chocolate”.

We sold them at Spitalfields market in London to raise money for charity. They went down really well and most people were really shocked about our cocoa farmer fact. Plus Sarah Corbett got the chance to add to that conversation by talking about her recent trip to Ghana where she met and hung out with a few local cocoa farmers in a village called Kasapin.

Do you think the flags have enough information on? What do you think of the idea of making some more, putting them under clear plastic cups and leaving them in public places for people to find? Plus does anyone know where to get ethical food colouring and marshmallows?
