    Chef #1558539's Note:

    With Fairtrade Fortnight right around the corner, what better time to try out some delicious and unusual baked treats created especially for the occasion by cupcake queen Lily Vanilli. These are so delicious that you'll want to bake them all year round, but I think they taste even better during Fairtrade Fortnight! The FAIRTRADE Mark is the only independent consumer label that ensures farmers in developing countries receive an agreed and stable price for the crops they grow. Choosing Fairtrade versions of everyday staples such as tea, coffee and sugar needn't cost you much more (and in the case of the Tate & Lyle cane sugars I've specified, there is no price premium), but will make a massive difference to the lives of the farmers and their families!
