Sweet treat marks birth­day

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

WEM­B­LEY cake shop Sug­arplum Sweets cel­e­brated a very spe­cial 20th an­niver­sary last Wed­nes­day.

As re­ported in this news­pa­per, owner Flavia Har­ris met Luke last July when he was home­less and beg­ging out­side Leed­erville IGA and im­me­di­ately of­fered him a job.

Luke, who had been sleep­ing rough since he was 13 years old, has since moved into his own apart­ment, qual­i­fied as a barista, earned his L-plates and en­rolled to fin­ish high school with the help of his “mumma bear” Flavia.

To cel­e­brate Luke’s first proper birth­day in seven years, Flavia made a spaghetti bolog­naise-shaped cake in the theme of his favourite food and gave out free slices to all her cus­tomers.
