Remembering the Titanic

There is no question that the world has a fascination with the Titanic disaster of 1912.  Living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, we are even more aware of the significance of today's 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the ship, officially April 15th, 1912.  

I thought it might be a good idea to draw a little attention to Halifax's role in the tragedy, so decided to solicit the help of my local baker, Nadine Boutilier.  On Friday, I delivered a Titanic replica to the kids' school!

Nadine created this edible masterpiece, weighing 30 pounds and measuring 3 ft long.  All 14 classrooms in the school received a slab to share, but only after the Headmaster had wheeled the cake to each class for viewing.  

It was a great way to mark an important date in our history.
Thanks Nadine {once again!} for your willingness to take on the challenge!

Lots of Forty 4 Change projects on the go....Laing House dessert table, SHYM Mom's Day Cabaret, and most importantly my Nana's 95th Birthday Brunch!  Stay tuned....


  1. I absolutely loved that you did this. What a wonderful way to remind "kids" of all ages of the tragedy.
    xoxo, Mom

  2. I would have liked to learn more about Halifax's role in the tragedy, from your perspective. ;) Beautiful cake! I love the first photo of the graves, too. A lovely way to honor those who died in the tragedy - well done!
