You'd find Shame Boxes in the middle of a city, by a supermarket or outside your local village hall. Places that people you know would see you and know that you've broken the rules and are in big trouble.
What would you do?
I love to bake and would probably end up in the Shame Box a lot! The idea has made me start to judge the things I eat, to see if it would be worth going to the Shame Box for.
It's become my version of a five star rating, so from now on, I'm going to decide if the cakes I bake and the ones I eat in cafes are good enough to go to risk a stay in a Shame Box.
Fancy joining me? Leave a comment to let me know your favourite cake, either one you bake or buy, and tell me why it's worth going to the Shame Box.
