Olive bakes a cake for HM The Queen


Little Olive has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. She had one wish: to bake a cake for HM The Queen!

First there was the challenge of baking a cake fit for The Queen! Olive had a helping hand from Tana Ramsay, a special Starlight fairy godmother who invited her to her home to bake a special cake.

“What kind of cake do you think The Queen would like?” Tana asked. Olive was sure of the answer: a squidgy chocolate cake with Smarties on top.


Together they made a wonderful cake, and of course, Olive was given the most important job of all — the tasting!

At Buckingham Palace, Olive and her family were greeted by Starlight Patron HRH Princess Alexandra, who was delighted to be visited by little ‘Princess Olive’ and to accept the cake on behalf of HM The Queen.

Olive’s mum said: “It is unbelievable her wish came true — she will remember this day for the rest of her life. Seeing her so happy is something I will remember forever. These happy memories eclipse some of the bad memories we have of Olive fighting her cancer. And we heard from The Queen — she loved Olive’s cake.”
