The Rains are comiing........

This weekend was another hectic one! I had deliveries today that led me on a journey of over 250km!

Starting out at Glengariff this morning, and ending up at Gilhooley's Chermside late this afternoon.
As I was driving out to Glengariff- the weather was fine and clear, but the forecast said there would be a storm in the afternoon. With the skies slightly overcast- it seemed a vague possibility.

The first delivery of the day- A three tier twist on tradition, with the base two tiers stacked American style, and the top tier separated by a column pillar- all iced to match the cake design. Blood red fresh roses to finish.

It took me four runs to deliver all the cakes today- but with very little traffic about- we delivered them all ahead of schedule.
As we dropped off the last order- at 4pm- the skies were growing darker, and not more than five minutes after getting home, the rain and hail fell, as the thunder rumbled in the skies! Thank goodness all of the cakes were on their respective tables, out of the rain!

Middle of the Delivery run- this Cherry Blossom Design suited the theming perfectly. Two weeks in a row for Cherry Blossom Cakes- this theme must be in!

I got to visit a few places I haven't been before- including the Maritime Museum, which holds functions in its grounds, on the banks of the Brisbane river. I would have never thought to have a function there- but the view from the venue was just fabulous.

I also finally got to meet in person Dominique- from Brett's Wharf.
She, and the team at Brett's Wharf, look after the functions there. I have only ever spoken to her on the phone, or via email- so it is always great when you get to meet someone face to face.

With a fair mixture of Traditional, contemporary, and Cupcake designs, this week was creatively fulfilling!
Wishing everyone a fantastic night ahead- BTW the skies are clear again!

Last but not least- this Cupcake tower- filled with Vanilla Cupcakes iced in pink icing, with a "Bling" Chocolate 21 on top! Simple and Pretty!
