Royal Show Cake

A little sneaky peek at my entry for the Perth Royal Show. Very happy with my flowers but when I saw the competition I was blown away by all of the very talented cake decorators exhibiting. Go along to the show and have a look for yourself there are some phenomenally beautiful cakes that are breath taking in both skill and design. Good luck everyone. If you're at the show on the last Saturday I will be doing a demo at lunch time, so come and say hello.

Sugar Rose

My cake decorating teacher is the fabulous Gail Dorter. Gail is so talented and is a wealth of information and inspiration as well as a sensational artisan in the craft of cake decorating. She also is super funny and keeps us in stitches for our classes. Gail showed us how to make a large formal rose and although this isn't finished, ie. no foliage I thought I'd show you a quick pic. I dusted the petals to resemble the Peace rose.

Baby Shower Cupcakes

Some pretty pastel baby themed cupcakes ordered by Claire for her friends baby shower. Best wishes to the parents to be. May you be blessed with a beautiful healthy baby, who also loves to sleep preferably more than three consecutive hours. Good luck and best wishes.

Horse Themed Cupcakes

I made these vanilla cupcakes for Angela to celebrate her friend winning Equestrian Federation of Australia,Horse of the Year. Yes that's what those letters stand for. They look pretty cute and I think the horse theme was a hit. I would love to say it has inspired me to jump on the back of a horse and trot off into the sunset but sadly I'm terrified of horses so making these cupcakes is about as close to horses as I like to get. Enjoy and congratulations.

High End Fashion Inspired Cupcakes

You have to admit these look super cute. I made these cupcakes for Anne Maree to celebrate her birthday with a bit of a sex in the city theme. Manolo Blahnik's, Chanel, D&G and Prada provided a bit of inspiration. The shoes took a bit of time to make {actually foreverrr} but hey when it comes to fashion some sacrifices have to made. Hope you enjoy the pictures and I hope Anne Maree you have a wonderful birthday. Best wishes and enjoy that Penthouse. xx

Tulip Cake

Spring has arrived and for my cake decorating class we made Tulips and Lavender {which looks great but was very fiddly}
We had to place them in a flower pick on a cake so they were arranged in an upright position. I haven't really finished arranging the flowers yet but thought I would show you my progress, what do you think?
