Children in Need needs you to make a Facebook cake

BBC Children in Need needs your help to build a giant cartoon cake on Facebook -- and raise oodles of boodle for disadvantaged kids, of course.

Fancy a slice of Pudsey's cake? BBC Children in Need needs your help to build a giant cartoon cake on Facebook -- and raise oodles of boodle for disadvantaged kids, of course.

Children in Need mascot Pudsey Bear has set up the Fancy A Spot of Cake app on his Facebook page, and aims to bake the world's biggest digital cake through your donations.

Yes, a digital cake, composed of layers containing exclusive clips from personalities like Graham Norton, musicals like Wicked, TV shows such as Strictly Come Dancing, and other celebrity supporters. As the cake grows, you can measure it against landmarks from Big Ben and the London Eye to Blackpool Tower and the Angel of the North -- and even outer space.

You can add a coloured spot or layers of icing or sponge depending on whether you want to donate £1, £5 or £10. You can even create your own tier for just £20, and you can donate as many times as you like.

Children in Need has raised funds since 1980 to help charities and organisations that make life better for disadvantaged kids. And this is the first time you can donate directly to a charity on Facebook, thanks to a deal with PayPal.

Children in Need takes place on 18 November, and you can add your Facebook donation now.
