Cherry Bakewell Tarts for Red Nose Day!
Today is Red Nose Day!
If you live in the UK and you don't know what Red Nose Day is, you've probably been hiding under a rock!
If you don't live in the UK, Red Nose Day is a fabulous fundraising day that takes place in the schools, homes and even workplaces, to raise money for Comic Relief.
Comic Relief is a charity that funds projects across the UK, Africa and throughout some of the world's poorest countries.
The day culminates in a night of comedy on the BBC, where the nation's favourite celebrities will 'Do Something Funny for Money'!

You can buy your red noses at Sainsbury's, they even sell a magnetic one for your car! Comic Relief launched in 1985 and over 50 million red noses have been bought over the years – do you remember The Hands Nose, The Tomato Nose, The Colour Changing Nose, The Shaggy Nose and The Nose That Grows?!
We've got our noses, donated the pocket money and the kids will join in the school fundraiser by wearing something red for school. I've even made some individual red nose cherry Bakewell tarts, small ones and a few deeper ones. There are so many different recipes and variations, I've used the filling from a Waitrose recipe, which is the more classic version, and Dorie Greenspan's sweet tart dough.
