It's all about the colour Purple

Did you know purple is the colour of good judgement. It is the colour of people seeking spiritual fulfillment and it is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind.

Purple is the combination of red and blue, the warmest and the coolest colours.
Purple is the colour of mourning for widows in Thailand. It was the favourite colour of Cleopatra and has traditionally been associated with Royaly and the Nobility. Most children love the colour purple. It is the colour most favoured by artists. Thursday's colour is purple.

I didn't know all of these facts when I decided to make some purple sugar flowers for a cake.
So have a wonderful week and colour your world...purple xx

Wedding Cake

Just delivered this pretty three tired wedding cake at Royal Perth Yacht Club. The design was modelled on a picture the bride Talea sent me . The flowers were based on a Gardenia and I know they don't come in a purple hue but therein lies the magic of cake decorating you can have what ever your heart desires, so shades of purple or I should say violet it was.

The venue looked spectacular, with beautiful floral arrangements and crystal stemware on the tables and in the background little yachts bobbing on the Swan River.
The cake consists of three flavours. The bottom tier chocolate, middle tier lemon and coconut with white chocolate ganache and the top tier white chocolate.

Best wishes to Talea and Tom on your wedding day may you be blessed with health and happiness. xx

That Crown Cake

OK, so two traits that I admire greatly in people are graciousness and modesty.  I may be pushing those boundaries here but couldn't resist posting a pic of that Crown Cake with all it's prize winning finery, ie. shiny blue first prize ribbon. Sorry about the photo there is a lot of glare.
